    Maritime security drill held off Goa coastline
    TNN |

    Panaji: In a bid to foster regional bilateral ties and enhance maritime security cooperation, the Indian Coast Guard held joint anti-piracy and safety exercises off the coast of Goa. Held for the first time, the joint exercises included a warship from Bangladesh CGS Tajuddin and delegates from 14 countries.
    Overseen by commander for Coast Guard Western Region Inspector General VS Pathania, the operations involved five Indian Coast Guard vessels, a fleet of aircrafts and two hovercrafts. During the exercises, which were held in collaboration with Singapore's ReCCAP Information Sharing Centre, the teams conducted anti-piracy operations including boarding of a hostile trawler and crew rescue.

    The exercise attains significance as the threat of armed robbery against ships remains alive in the South East Asian sea, even as piracy attempts have decreased along India's western coastline.
    According to ReCAAP (Regional Cooperation Agreement on Combating Piracy and Armed Robbery against Ships in Asia), a total of six incidents of armed robbery against ships were reported in Asia, in January 2017, though no incident of piracy was reported in the region.
    "This is a 40% decrease in the total number of incidents as compared to January 2016. Between March 2016 and January 2017, a total of 11 actual incidents involving abduction of crew were reported to the ReCAAP ISC," a delegate who was part of the exercise said.

    10 crewmen of adrift vessel rescued
    TNN | Updated: Feb 15, 2017, 08.35AM IST


    AHMEDABAD: The Indian Coast Guard (ICG) rescued 10 crew members of a vessel from Kochi that was adrift without propulsion in the Arabian sea off the Porbandar coast after suffering an engine breakdown.
    The barge, MV Matha 2, which set sail from Kochi on January 3, suffered an engine breakdown and was adrift off the Porbandar coast, the ICG said on Tuesday.

    The boat managed to communicate with the passing Panama-flagged vessel MT Ocean Gas on radio frequency for assistance, who in turn, alerted the Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre (MRCC) at Mumbai, it said.

    The MRCC then contacted ICG at Gandhinagar on February 12 after which Coast Guard ship Arush was rushed to assist the sailors, it said. Basic medical aid was provided to the crew by the ICG ship's medical team.

    Indian Coast Guard Commissions new patrol Vessel in Cochin.

    KOCHI: Adding to the growing strength of the Indian Coast Guard (ICG), vice admiral A R Karve, flag officer commanding-in-chief, Southern Naval Command, commissioned CGS Ayush, the final vessel in the series of twenty fast patrol vessels (FPVs) designed and built by the Cochin Shipyard Ltd (CSL) early on Saturday.

    "The 50-m-long ship having a maximum speed of 33 knots was delivered to the CG on December 30, 2016, almost three months ahead of contractual schedule," said Madhu S Nair, chairman and managing director of CSL.

    Additional DG K Natarajan, CG commander, Western Seaboard, said that the 20 ships are part of the CG's plan to expand operations in the coastal region. By 2020, they expect to expand their capacity by 150 ships and 100 aircraft.
    "Security threats at sea and from the sea have been accorded the top most priority, and this has changed the role of the ICG, especially after the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai," said Karve.

    He said that the economic growth in the last few decades has reinforced the importance of the Coast Guard.
    "The contract to build 20 new vessels for the CG was awarded to CSL in 2010. It was the largest order won by CSL on a competitive tender and it came at a time when CSL was reeling under the pressure of the recession of 2008 and the contract was of great relief to CSL," said Nair.
    The ship will be under command of Commandant Asheesh Sharma and will be under operational control of the commander, Coast Guard region (east), Chennai.

    Note :- These 5 OPV are the follow on order to 6 Sankalp Batch 2 OPVs also known as Samarth Class

    Keel for 1st ship of 5 CGOPV project laid at GSL

    Panaji, Mar 20 (UNI) Keel of the first Coast Guard Offshore
    Patrol Vessel of the new 5 CGOPVs Project for the Indian Coast
    Guard was ceremoniously laid at Goa Shipyard Ltd by ADG K
    Natarajan, Coast Guard Commander (Western Seaboard), in the
    presence of retired Rear Admiral Shekhar Mital, chairman and
    managing director of GSL, at Vasco today.
    According to a statement from GSL, a contract for five
    CGOPVs was signed by GSL with Ministry of Defence (MoD) on August
    26 last year and production was formally started within three
    months with formal steel cutting on November 13, 2016, at the
    hands Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
    Now, within further four months, company has started
    construction of multiple blocks concurrently. It may be recalled
    that GSL has delivered four big size OPVs in a short period of 15
    months, resulting in GSL having unique distinction of delivering
    highest combined CGT of 7,700 tonnes within a year, among all
    shipyards in the country.
    RAdm Mital said in his message, ''The Yard is already in
    the process of executing the six CGOPVs Project, of which four
    ships have been delivered all ahead of contractual delivery
    schedule. The balance ships too, are progressing ahead of
    schedule. The next project of five OPVs will be built in a
    reduced build period of less than three years each.''
    The vessels for the Indian Coast Guard are based on in-
    house design of GSL and would be fitted with most modern and
    technologically advanced machinery and computerized controls
    systems, making them the most advanced Patrol Vessels in service
    with the Indian Coast Guard on delivery. These 2,400 tonne
    vessels will be equipped with additional features like Quick
    Response Boats for rescue and anti piracy, Gunnery simulators and
    many more advanced features. The hull would be the most efficient
    form designed by GSL and would provide for fuel efficiency, crew
    comfort and excellent sea keeping qualities.
    Incidentally, this was the first keel laid in the modernized
    facility developed under Phase 3A of Shipyard’s ambitious
    modernisation programme, inaugurated by Prime Minister Modi on
    November 13, 2016.
    The ships would thus be built in covered sheds, providing
    improved environmental protection, leading to high quality of
    construction, besides improved productivity with conducive
    environment for workers.
    GSL directors, DIG Atul Parlikar and other senior officials
    of the Coast Guard and GSL were also present on occasion.
