Indian Coast Guard ship (ICGS) Samudra Paheredar entered Mina Rashid, UAE on Saturday to begin its three-day good will visit.
The visit aims to enhance interactions and cooperation between the Indian Coast Guard (ICG) and UAE maritime agencies and for conduct of combined exercises/interaction so as to consolidate the professional and working relationship with UAE and its respective agencies.
ICGS Samudra Paheredar is the second pollution-control vessel in the Indian Coast Guard's fleet. The ship was indigenously built by ABG Shipyard, Surat. It was commissioned in the year 2010.
The ship is 94.10 metres long, draws 4,300 tons at maximum displacement, and is propelled by 3,000-kilowatt twin diesel engines, producing power that is further enhanced by twin shaft generators for a maximum speed of 21 knots. At economical speed, the ship has an endurance of 6,500 nautical miles and can stay at sea for 20 days.
The ship is equipped with state-of-the-art pollution response and control equipment, including containment equipment such as Hi sprint booms and river booms, recovery devices such as skimmers and side-sweeping arms, and storage devices such as oil recovery operation tanks and inflatable barges.
The ship is capable of unhindered oil-recovery operations, with a storage capacity of 502 kilolitres. The special features include an integrated platform management system, a power management system, and a high-powered external fire-fighting system.
The ship will be undertaking various maritime related joint training manoeuvres with UAE maritime agencies over three days which will include Marine Pollution Response, Maritime Search & Rescue and Maritime Law enforcement.
The ship is commanded by DIG Anwar Khan. The ship will be berthed at Mina Rashid until Tuesday as part of its visit to Gulf countries.
