Speaking on the occasion, Vice Admiral Jaywant Korde, commended the contribution made by GRSE towards meeting the Navy’s growing requirements of state of art warships and acknowledged the role of GRSE as a reliable partner in pursuing the national goal of ‘Make in India’. He brought out that with the delivery of the first ship of FO-WJFAC project in Apr 16, M/s GRSE has delivered a total of 95 ships to the Indian Navy which speaks volumes about the shipyard capabilities. He extended warm felicitations to the entire team of the GRSE for their significant contribution towards meeting the Navy’s growing requirements of state-of-art warships.

These Follow-on Water Jet Fast Attack Craft are powered by the latest MTU engines, along with an advanced machinery control system and water jets and can attain a maximum speed of up to 35 Knots. The indigenous CRN 91 Gun with Optronic Pedestal gives the ships the requisite firepower to undertake its role of patrolling at sea effectively.

The launch of FO-WJFAC, Yard 2112 designed in-house and built by GRSE, Kolkata for the Indian Navy is yet another milestone in India’s quest for self-reliance in shipbuilding.
