GSL hands over patrol vessel to Sri Lanka

The state-run Goa Shipyard Limited (GSL) has delivered an advanced offshore patrol vessel to the Sri Lankan Navy.

The defence ministry here said the vessel will be the largest and the most advanced ship in the Sri Lankan Navy fleet.

"This state-ofthe-art and largest ship in the Sri Lanka Naval fleet will help meet the increasing requirement of the Sri Lanka Navy for undertaking policing and patrolling of its vast Exclusive Economic Zone," said Rear Admiral (Rtd) Shekhar Mital, Chairman and Managing Director of GSL.

The ship was handed over yesterday at a ceremony at Vaddem in Vasco da Gama.
