CMD, GSL, Rear Admiral (Retd) Shekhar Mital apprised the Ambassador about various shipbuilding, ship repair activities and the expertise available at GSL, besides the recent export projects, successfully completed by GSL in the last two years. He was taken around Coast Guard Ships that are under various stages of construction at GSL.

The Ambassador was apprised of the ambitious GSL modernisation plan and progress which will result into tripling the shipbuilding capacity, by which GSL can build 14 OPV class ship concurrently.

A presentation was made to the Ambassador on the emergence of GSL to a sophisticated shipyard and largest exporter of warships from India, capable of designing and building ships for various customers, from concept to commissioning. Notably, GSL has nearly tripled its turnover in the last four years and has completed multiple prestigious export orders for friendly countries like Myanmar, Srilanka and Mauritius, by delivering all the ships much ahead of delivery schedules. GSL is also working on much complex and weapon intensive Corvettes projects for a foreign Navy.
