Coast Guard gets high speed Interceptor Boat

Mumbai, Dec 20 (IBNS) Larsen & Toubro (L&T), India's leading engineering, manufacturing and construction major, on Thursday said it has delivered its first indigenously designed and constructed High Speed Interceptor Boat (IB) to Indian Coast Guard (ICG).

The IB capable of achieving maximum speed over 40 Knots, was designed and constructed entirely through in-house efforts.

This is the first of 36 such High Speed Interceptor Boats being constructed by L&T under a contract worth Rs. 977 Crs. from ICG.

The IB has a full aluminium-alloy construction for reduced weight and is powered by twin water-jet propulsion systems to enable quick response which is vital for coastal surveillance activities.

The interceptors have the ability to operate effectively in shallow water which will be critical for near- shore action.

These boats are expected to significantly enhance India's coastal security. The first boat has been commissioned into service on Thursday at Coast Guard District Headquarters at Porbandar under the command of COMCG (North-western Region).

Using the latest 3D software at L&T's "state-of-the-art" Marine Design Centre, the boat was first developed as a virtual vessel in the office environment to ensure compliance with operability, maintainability and buildability, before issuing the drawings to the shop floor.

During the recently concluded sea trials, the boat has achieved the stringent performance parameters of speed and endurance.
