Goa Shipyard Limited (GSL)

Goa Shipyard Limited (GSL) is a Miniratna Defence PSU under the administrative control of the Ministry of Defence. The company is capable of indigenously designing and building sophisticated high technology ships for Indian Defence Forces and other varied clients including export markets.  New business development areas identified under diversification include the construction of Hovercrafts for Indian Army. GSL prides itself in timely delivery of ships at 'fixed cost' and enjoys very strong execution skills.

GSL was established in 1957, originally by the colonial government of the Portuguese in India as the "Estaleiros Navais de Goa," to build barges to be used in Goa's growing mining industry, which took off after the establishment of India's blockade of Goa in 1955. In the wake of Portugal's defeat and unconditional surrender to India following the 1961 Indian annexation of Goa, it was requisitioned to manufacture warships for the Indian Navy and the Indian Coast Guard.

GSL is undergoing a modernisation of its yard to adapt to the latest technology in shipbuilding. To this purpose, it is negotiating with well-known shipbuilders for an arrangement to collaborate. To date, it has built 167 vessels, including barges, tugs, landing craft, offshore patrol vessels and other vessels for the Indian Navy and Coast Guard and for export to countries like Yemen.

A new slipway has been commissioned to take up major repair jobs of ships in the dry dock area. A damage control simulator and two double boom level luffing cranes for heavy lifting have been constructed.
