Establishment

Goa Shipyard Limited established in 1957.  In 1961, the potential of a small shipyard called “Estaleiros Navais de Goa” to contribute towards this national aspiration was recognized. The Yard, later renamed Goa Shipyard Limited, was consciously shaped, developed and upgraded to become one of the country’s premier defence shipbuilding hubs on the west coast.

After, the company 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. GSL 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.

Damage Control Simulator (DCS)

Goa Shipyard Ltd is proud to design and construct Damage Control Simulator (DCS) – ‘Akshat’ and ‘Avinash’ for the Indian Navy. These Damage Control Simulators are only two of its kind in Asia and are among the very few existing worldwide. DCS Akshat was commissioned at INS Shivaji, Lonavla, India on 18 December, 2001 and DCS Avinash was commissioned at INS Venduruthy, Kochi, India on 12 April, 2012. Since then, both the simulators have been successfully serving the training needs of the Indian Navy with zero down time. GSL is also building one DCS for the Govt.of Myanmar.

The DCS is essentially a training system that simulates a realistic and stressful but controlled environment for crew training in ship damage control and repair invarious damage scenarios. In real life operational service, the possibility of ship damage in both war and peace times is likely. To contain the damage and save the vessel, the crew needs to be able to respond to the threat with efficiency, expertise and confidence gained from training in similar situations. The realistic damage scenarios and crisis generated in the DCS contributes invaluably in driving away fear among the trainees and in improving team building traits, thereby preparing them for unforeseen hardships and emergencies at sea.

Sail Training Ship (STS)

GSL takes pride in building the first ever Sail Training Ship “INS Tarangini” for the Indian Navy for training cadets. This Ship is built for worldwide operations to the design of Colin Mudie, UK and was commissioned on 11th Nov.1997. After satisfactory performance of “INS Tarangini”, GSL secured a repeat order for second Sail Training Ship “INS Sudarshini” which was successfully built and was commissioned on 27 Jan. 2012.

The ship is a steel hulled, round bilged, three masted sailing ship, square rigged on the forward and main mast and fore and aft rigged on the mizzen mast and has eighteen sails with a sail area of approx. 1035 sq. m.It has a/so got a very high endurance and can be deployed at sea continuously for a period of twenty days. The ship will have an accommodation for 61 persons and will be used under sailor under power and under combination of both.

Sail training ships are increasingly being used as basic seamanship and character building platforms by Navies the world over.

Survey Motor Boat

The boat is capable of carrying out Hydrographic survey operations using modem surveying equipment / system, up to a minimum water depth of one meter below hull mounted single beam echo-sounder transducers .It shall also be able to undertake emergency operations like landing shore survey parties and providing logistic support to shore camps.

The boat has been designed to be operational and manoeuvred safely and effectively at speed with full complement in sea conditions. The vessel is very stable and resistant to capsize. The chines are particularly stiffened to ensure that impacts at the waterline do not compromise
integrity of the hull.

The vessel offers good manoeuvrability and throttle response throughout its speed range and particularly when coming alongside or breaking away from an underway vessel at its full load and complement.

The design and construction of the boat is in such a way that it will be able to withstand sudden impacts arising from grounding,if any, without any compromise to integrity of the hull, to the extent possible.
