Bright days ahead for Hindustan Shipyard Limited

The Hindustan Shipyard Limited, the largest on the East Coast, has received letters of offer from the Ministry of Defence for construction of five Fleet Support Ships and two Strategic Operating Vessels (SOVs).

The HSL was set up in 1941 by the Scindia Steam Navigation Company in 1941. It became a partially government owned entity in 1952 and fully government controlled in 1961. It is the first shipbuilding yard to get ISO-9001 certification. It was brought under the Ministry of Defence from Shipping in 2010.
