Goa Shipyard Set for INS Sumedha's Commissioning

The largest offshore patrol ship indigenously designed and built by Goa Shipyard Ltd (GSL) for the Indian Navy, named INS ‘Sumedha’ will be formally commissioned on 7th March 2014 at GSL.

The ship on commissioning will join Eastern Naval Command at Vizag, the sword arm of Indian Navy.

INS ‘Sumedha’ is the third of the new 105 meter class of NOPV and the largest ship constructed by GSL for the Indian Navy. This state of the art ship will help meet the increasing requirement of the Indian Navy for undertaking ocean surveillance and surface warfare operations in order to prevent infiltration and transgression of maritime sovereignty.

This ship is suitable for monitoring sea lanes of communication, defence of offshore oil installations and other critical offshore national assets. The ship can also be deployed for escorting high value ships and fleet support operations.

The first and second of the series of new NOPV, INS SARYU and SUNAYNA were earlier handed over to the Indian Navy by GSL on 21 December 2012 and 02 September 2013 respectively.
