Six Next Generation Missile Vessels (NGMVs) Being Classed By Indian Register Of Shipping

Indian Register of Shipping (IRS), a leading ship classification society is proud to announce that it will provide classification services and certify six Next Generation Missile Vessels (NGMVs) to be constructed at Cochin Shipyard Limited (CSL).

The primary role of these NGMVs is to provide offensive capabilities against enemy warships, merchantmen, and land targets. They will be highly sophisticated warships with advanced stealth features, high speed, and strike capabilities. These will be the first major weapon platforms of the Indian Navy with such capabilities to be built with the design being certified by the IRS.

IRS specialists will also conduct various technical analyses and validation on the stealth features as these warships are designed and constructed. This project illustrates IRS’ ability to provide classification and advanced technical services for weapon-intensive combat platforms.

Indigenous manufacturing will be a major focus of the NGMVs project. Most of the equipment and systems would be sourced from in-country suppliers and manufacturers. Cdr KK Dhawan (Retd.), Head of Defence Division, said, “IRS is steadfastly supporting India’s ‘Aatma Nirbhar Bharat’ initiative.

IRS is in a strong position to guide Indian manufacturers and certify their products.” He also mentioned that the Indian Register of Shipping is looking forward to working with Cochin Shipyard Ltd, whose exemplary professional competence has been amply demonstrated by their successful delivery of the first indigenously built aircraft carrier to the Indian Navy.
