Cochin Shipyard Limited (CSL) says it has delivered the third of the series of 20 Fast Patrol Vessels being built for the Indian Coast Guard. The vessel is named “ABHINAV” and will be operated by the Coast Guard station at Kochi.

The first vessel was commissioned on 13th December 2013 and the second on 31 December 2013. Like its sister ships, “ ABHINAV” also can move very fast at a speed of 33 knots and will be very effective in supporting the Indian Coast Guard in its anti smuggling, anti piracy operations and fisheries protection and monitoring. The shipbuilder explains that since speed of the vessel will be very crucial in coastal security operations, the superstructure is made of aluminum. Consequently, a considerable amount of innovation in welding and fabrication techniques were undertaken by CSL to achieve a very high quality product.

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

CSL adds that apart from the patrol boat orders it is also constructing India's first indigenous aircraft carrier.
