India’s Garden Reach Shipbuilders and Engineers (GRSE) has delivered the first of a new class of eight in-house designed Mk IV Landing Craft Utility (LCU) vessels to the Indian Navy last week.

"L-51 is expected to be commissioned “soon” at Port Blair" the Indian armed forces triservice command that oversees Andaman and Nicobar island territories, Indian Ministry of Defence was quoted as saying by IHS Janes today.

The delivery of L-51 took place 14 months later than the initially envisaged timeframe of July 2015. The ship’s production began in September 2012.

Keel-laying took place on 26 April 2013 followed by the ship’s launching in March 2014 at GRSE’s Rajabagan unit.
