Goa Shipyard's petrol vessel for Coast Guard

 

ICGS Vaibhav, an indigenously designed 90-metre class offshore patrol vessel (OPV), built by Goa Shipyard Ltd (GSL), was handed over to the Indian Coast Guard yesterday, officials said.

ICGS Vaibhav is the third in a series of three OPVs built by GSL for the Indian Coast Guard. 

The vessel is equipped with advanced state-of-the-art navigational and communication equipment and sensors, the official said. 

The vessel is designed to carry a helicopter and five high-speed boats for search and rescue, law enforcement and maritime patrol. It is also capable of carrying pollution response equipment to combat oil spill at sea. 

The ship is fitted with a Global Maritime Distress and Safety system (GMDSS) making it an apt platform to carry out search and rescue operations, he said.
