Goa Shipyad Limited

Over the years, Goa Shipyard Ltd. gradually developed to meet the growing shipbuilding needs of the country’s naval defence sector, in the process going on to design and build a wide range of vessels for the defence as well as the commercial sectors.

While making consistent progress in its core competency of shipbuilding, the Yard has also proactively moved to exploit market opportunities by successfully diversifying into a related product range. It has designed and constructed Training Simulators for the Indian Navy and Oil & Natural Gas Corporation. A series of Interceptor boats have been built for the Ministry of Home Affairs and are used by the Coastal State Police on the west coast. The Damage Control Simulator built by Goa Shipyard for the Indian Navy, incidentally, is the only one of its kind in Asia and one of the very few existing worldwide. A Survival at Sea Training Facility has been designed and constructed by Goa Shipyard for ONGC for training of their personnel in meeting with real life emergencies that may occur on oil platforms. GSL has executed India’s first Shore Based Training Facility for carrier borne aircraft in association with the Aeronautical Development Agency of Bengaluru at INS Hansa, Goa. The facility will be used to train pilots for the MiG-29K and the indigenous LCA-Navy.

The modernisation plan is a result of a vision of the Ministry of Defence Production and GSL, to have a contemporary Shipyard. The modernization project implemented in four phases, will include a new integrated steel fabrication facility using modular construction technique and modern workshops. It will have dedicated building berths with shiplift and transfer system, dry repair berths, enhanced material handling and new crane facilities. There will be new material stores, a GRP complex for construction of MCMVs, fitting out jetties for ship outfitting, MCMV & repair ships and revamping of electrical and mechanical services and utilities. Rationalisation of resource utilization, introduction of state-of-the-art multipliers and business methods in all areas of shipbuilding, ship repair and life time support are also on the agenda. This remodeling will enable us to meet the qualitative and quantitative objectives of building and delivering quality ships at competitive cost with shorter construction periods and delivery times as well as increased capacity and product mix.

Phases 1 and 2 of the Modernisation Project was commissioned on May 21st, 2011. This part of the Modernisation Project, has enhanced the Yard’s infrastructure with a system capable of docking 120 M vessels upto 6000 T and a Ship Transfer Area of around 13600 sq. mts. GSL can now count itself as India’s first Defence Shipyard to be equipped with a modern Shiplift facility for launching and docking of ships. The commissioning of the ship lift has given impetus to repair activities.

Goa Shipyard Limited (GSL) established in 1957, is a leading ISO 9001-2008 certified shipyard on the West Coast of India, functioning under the administrative control of Ministry of Defence, Govt. of India.

Beginning as a small barge building yard, GSL has garnered reputation as one of the most sophisticated ship builders in the Country. For over four decades, GSL has designed, built and commissioned a wide range of sophisticated vessels for varied applications in the defence and commercial sectors with special expertise in building modern patrol vessels of Steel and Aluminium hull structure.
