RDEL earns FPV contract

3rd February 2017 - 08:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Reliance Defence and Engineering Limited (RDEL) has won a contract to build 14 Fast Patrol Vessels (FPVs) for the Indian Coast Guard, the company announced on 30 January.

Under the contract with the Indian Ministry of Defence, the FPVs will be designed and delivered at a cost of $13.5 million.

The medium-range, high-speed vessels will be primarily used for patrol within India's exclusive economic zone; and anti-smuggling, anti-piracy, search and rescue operations. They will also support front line warships when required.

RDEL will develop the design in-house.

Reliance Shipyard will use a block-construction technique and unique 'modular construction technology' to build the vessels.
