Larsen & Toubro Receive Order for 18 High-Speed Interceptor Boats for Indian Coast Guard

Larsen & Toubro (L&T) has received an order valued at `447 crores from the Ministry of Defence for the construction of 18 High-Speed Interceptor Boats for the Indian Coast Guard.

This follows the earlier contract, valued at `977 crores, for 36 similar vessels.

With this order, L&T is positioned as the foremost Indian shipyard in terms of capability to indigenously design and construct the largest number of Interceptor Boats for India’s Ministry of Defence. Designed and constructed by L&T entirely through in-house capability, the first of these boats has already been delivered to the Indian Coast Guard.

The Interceptor Boat is a ‘planing craft’, capable of achieving speeds exceeding 40 Knots. Built with a full aluminium-alloy lightweight hull, it is powered by a twin water-jet propulsion system to enable quick response crucial for coastal surveillance. These boats are expected to significantly enhance India’s coastal security.

The contract was signed on 22 January 2013.

The Floating Dock has been designed in-house by L&T’s Design Competency Centre, which undertakes the complete cycle of concept design to production detailing.
We offer a range of offshore patrol vessels capable of ocean policing, control, surveillance and monitoring. 
Our high-speed interceptor boat is designed to meet the stringent requirements of defence and law enforcement agencies.
L&T's Kattupalli shipyard has the capability and capacity to undertake refit, repair and mid-life upgrade of warships, submarines and auxiliary vessels.
