GSL set to ink deal with defence ministry for two frigates


With India and Russia inking the crucial agreement for the procurement of four guided missile frigates for the Indian Navy — including two ships which will be built by Goa Shipyard Limited (GSL) — the Vasco based-shipyard is now racing to ink a formal contract with the ministry of defence in order to complete formalities within the next two months, GSL officials said.

The ministry of defence quietly inked the contract to purchase two frigates of the Project 11356 class, which will be bought directly from Russia’s Yantar Shipyard. While the two frigate  hulls are already fabricated, India will procure the gas turbines from Ukraine and then integrate them onto the two vessels.

“The natural choice would be for GSL to integrate the engines on the first two frigates that will directly be sourced from Russia. But the engines could also be integrated in Russia. Nothing has been decided,” said an official. Read  More
