Indian Coast Guard Welcomes New Patrol Boat

Cochin Shipyard Limited (CSL) delivered the sixth in the series of 20 Fast Patrol Vessels being built for the Indian Coast Guard.

The Protocol of delivery and acceptance was signed by Shri Vinayakumar P, Director, on behalf of CSL, and Commanding Officer of the vessel Cmdr. Umed Singh of Indian Coast Guard.

The vessel is named “CGS AGRIM” and will be operated by the Coast Guard Station at Mumbai.

Cochin Shipyard had signed the contract for the construction of the 20 Fast Patrol Vessels (FPV) for the Indian Coast Guard on October 20, 2010. The yard has already earlier delivered five vessels tothe Coast Guard.

Like its sister ships, “AGRIM” is a Fast Patrol Vessel capable of speeds of 33 knots, and will be very effective in supporting the Indian Coast Guard in its anti-smuggling, anti-piracy operations, fisheries protection and monitoring.

Since the speed of the vessel is crucial in coastal security operations, the superstructure of these ships is made of aluminum.

The ship is propelled by water jets powered by three Main Engines, each of capacity-2720 KW, and built to the dual classicfication requirements of ABS and IRS.
