    Antony to commission indigenously built OPV on Wednesday

    Panaji: ICGS 'VISHWAST', first-of-its kind, indigenously designed Offshore Patrol Vessel will be commissioned by Defence Minister AK Antony on Wednesday to the Indian Coast Guard (ICG).

    Goa Shipyard Limited (GSL), one of the prominent defence shipbuilding yards, has built the ship which has state-of-the-art navigation and communication equipments.

    The vessel, 90 meter in length, has an Integrated Bridge System and is also provided with Platform Management System, a GSL spokesman said.



    "Propelled by two MTU engines, this vessel delivers a maximum speed of 26 knots and has an endurance of 4500 nautical miles. The vessel is capable of operating an helicopter. The vessel is also equipped with a 30 mm gun to counter undesirable intruders," he said.

    This is the only vessel in this class in the world with a large range of facilities for Pollution Control, Fire Fighting, Search & Rescue and Patrolling, the spokesman added.

    Indian Coast Guard would be using the ship for patrolling and policing maritime zones, search and rescue operation, maritime surveillance, anti-smuggling operation, pollution response against oil spillage and external fire-fighting.
