L&T has signed the prin­ci­pal con­tract with Viet­nam Bor­der Guard val­ued at $99.7 mil­lion for de­sign and con­struc­tion of high-speed pa­trol ves­sels in In­dia. It also in­cludes trans­fer of de­sign and tech­nol­ogy along with sup­ply of equip­ment and ma­te­rial kits for con­struc­tion of fol­low-on ves­sels in Viet­nam.

Con­structed of alu­minium al­loy, the ves­sels are about 35 m long and can clock a speed of 35 knots with state-of-theart nav­i­ga­tion and sur­veil­lance equip­ment and self-de­fence ca­pa­bil­i­ties on board.
