Nice two see SL developing. Let the two neighbours, SL and India get more close to each other in relationship.:cheers:
Yes i agree, Sri lanka and india should make major steps towards corpartion in defence and technology sector to prevent double funding.
its like sri lanka invest loads of money in an air defence system, then india also invests the same amount in another air defence system. instead sri lankan and india could work of a single budget for reserch projects contructivly, so after the system is made avaible india buys whatever amount of units it wants, and sri lanka does the same.

its like the the EU, the combined defence expenditure is 300 billion, which is about 1/3 of america defence budget. but EU does'nt have any near 1/3 of the military caperbilites of america. its more like 1/15 or 1/20 desipsite having a budget which is 1/3, it is becuase double spending by more than one country.

Sri Lanka shipbuilder starts work at new river-side yard

July 21, 2010 (LBO) - Sri Lankan ship builder Colombo Dockyard has begun building a ferry for passengers in the former northern war zone using a new yard on a river close to Colombo port, a statement said.

The 100-passenger launch is being built for the state-owned Road Development Authority and will be used to ferry passengers between the northern Jaffna peninsula and a nearby island.

Colombo Dockyard, a unit of Japan's Onomichi Dockyard, said it was the first project at its newly acquired ‘Kelani River Yard’, just north of Colombo port where it has its main shipyard.

Once complete, the hull will be floated down the river and brought to the yard at the port.

"Colombo Dockyard’s expansion of facilities to the ‘Kelani River Yard’ for construction of small ships and for pre-processing of steel plates and pipes intended for large ship construction will ease congestion within the main shipyard premises," it said.

The passenger launch will be suitable for operation in rough weather conditions and will boost the small fleet of launches now in operation and used by thousands of northern commuters in the post-war era.

Normal life and economic activity in the north has resumed with the end of Sri Lanka's 30-year ethnic war in May 2009.

The steel launch will have seating capacity for 100 passengers and be powered by two main engines with a cruising speed of 10 knots and an endurance of 100 nautical miles.

The RDA plans to deploy the launch for transferring civilians from Kurikadduvan jetty of Punguduthive of the Jaffna peninsula to Delft island eight nautical miles away.

The launch will be able to operate 12 nautical miles from coast and within 50 nautical miles from a harbour, Colombo Dockyard said.

Sri Lanka Dockyard wins Indian passenger ferry deal

Aug 31, 2011 (LBO) - Sri Lanka's Colombo Dockyard said it has won an order to build two passenger ferries for India's Laskshadweep island administration, on the wake of an earlier delivery to the same customer.

The contract comes a year after delivery of two passenger vessels, Arabian Sea and Lakshadweep Sea, for the Administration of the Union Territory of Lakshadweep (UTL) in India, the shipyard said in a statement.

The vessels ordered will have the capacity to carry 400 passengers and 250 tonnes of cargo.

"These two new vessels will also be deployed to cater to the increased traffic en-route from the mainland (Cochin, India) to UTL Islands, as well as in the inter-island routes," it said.

"The enhanced passenger capacity is expected to ease the movement of passengers especially during peak season."

The vessels will be designed by ship design firm, GL Noble Denton of Norway, previous known as Brevik Engineering, meeting class rules of Lloyd's Register of Shipping and the Indian Register of Shipping.

The passengers will have different categories of accommodation with 10 first class, 40 second class and 350 normal class passenger transportation facilities, the statement said.

Sri Lanka Dockyard profits up on OSVs

Mar 05, 2013 (LBO) - Sri Lanka's Colombo Dockyard Plc, a unit of Japan's Onomichi Dockyard Co. Ltd, said profits grew 28 percent to 1.9 billion rupees helped by new buildings, amid tough conditions for ship repairs.

In the December quarter the group reported earnings of 434 million rupees, up 7.9 percent from a year earlier. The group reported earnings 6.11 rupees per share for the quarter and 27.81 rupees for the year.
Revenues rose 28 percent to 16.3 billion rupees and cost of sales also rose 28 percent to 13.4 billion rupees allowing gross profit to rise 30 percent to 2.9 billion rupees.

Revenues from ship building rose 43 percent to 11.0 billion rupees in the year.

The group said its focus and a reputation for building high quality support ships for the oil industry had brought benefits.

"Our focus on shipbuilding for the Offshore Supporting Vessels (OSV) market segment has also held us in good stead in that the strategic diversification decisions taken many years ago have seen us charter into niche areas, " Chairman Akihiko Nakauchi told shareholders in the annual report.

"The ship repair area of our business, meanwhile, did have to contend with survival strategy, where ship owners minimised spending and delayed repairs until statutory regulations dictate that repairs be completed."

In 2012, an anchor handling tug supply vessel and two multi-purpose platform supply vessels had been delivered.

Managing director Mangala Yapa said the order book was full and capacity fully utilized until the end of 2013.

Four platform supply vessels are to be completed in 2013, and another in 2014. Colombo Dockyard was also building two 400 passenger cum 250 tonne cargo vessels to be used by Lakshadweep administration in India.

Ship repair revenue rose 4.8 percent to 4.6 billion rupees, but the firm said there was less business from long-time India based customers, and overall market conditions were weak with prices slashed at by Chinese yards.

Boats for Indian navy undergo sea trials off Colombo

Several Fast Interceptor Craft built by Solas Marine Lanka (Pvt.) limited, are undergoing sea trials in Sri Lankan waters before being handed over to the Indian navy.

The Dubai-based Solas Marine Services Group is in the process of building 80 FIC at a shipyard situated along the Hamilton Canal.

The company, formerly known as Blue Star Marine, secured the deal worth USD 46 million in late September 2011 beating bigger competitors. Sources said that India had called for proposals from boat builders soon after the conclusion of the conflict in Sri Lanka.

They speculated that the Indian navy would deploy FIC in an operational capacity similar to that of Sri Lanka’s elite Special Boat Squadron (SBS) as well as the Rapid Action Boat Squadron (RABS).

The SBS and the RASB played a vital role in depriving the LTTE access to the sea during the last few months of Eelam War IV.

According to the Indian media, Sagar Prahari Bal would be responsible for the deployment of FIC to protect the coast. The Indian navy set up SPB in the wake of the unprecedented sea borne Lashkar-e-Taiba raid on Mumbai which claimed the lives of about 180 persons in late November 2008. Investigations revealed the raiding party had exploited the weakness in coastal defences to reach Mumbai.

Responding to a query by The Island, sources said that the special boat project was continuing in spite of a slight delay in the delivery schedule.

The 16-metre-long craft, mounted with a range of weapons, would be manned by four or five personnel. Recently, Indian Defence Minister Anthony told Parliament that Sri Lanka was among its defence suppliers. Minister Anthony didn’t specify the equipment. An authoritative government official involved in procurement told The Island that Minister Anthony was referring to the transaction involving the private builder.

Sri Lanka shipyard hurt by lubricant import controls

Nov 28, 2013 (LBO) - Sri Lanka's Colombo Dockyard, a ship repair and building firm, found its competitiveness hurt by import restrictions on specialist lubricants.

Sri Lanka requires a 'no objection' letter from the government to import lubricants as it is a licensed business on which the state has placed import restrictions.
A Dockyard official told a business forum in Colombo that competing countries like Singapore or Dubai could supply any brand of lubricants demanded by ship owners quickly.
Dockyard on the other had faced delays in getting approval to import specialist brands of lubricants.

Petroleum ministry additional secretary Sandya Wijebandara said all efforts would be made to speed up approvals when requests were made.

Colombo Dockyard appoints Simplex Turbulo as UK representative

Colombo Dockyard appoints Simplex Turbulo as UK representative


Simplex-Turbulo signed an agency agreement in Sri Lanka with Colombo Dockyard. Simplex’s Managing Director Peter Stevenson and senior officials of Colombo Dockyard were present at the event.
Colombo Dockyard Plc has been looking to develop the markets in Europe, the UK, the Far East and the Indian Subcontinent, employing energetic marketing campaigns to generate quality business leads for ship repair and ship-building enquiries. Colombo Dockyard Plc, established in 1974, has operated in collaboration with Onomichi Dockyard Ltd. Japan since 1993.
UK ship owners and managers used the facilities at the Colombo Dockyard extensively throughout the 1980s and 1990s, but following the development of Singapore and Hong Kong as ship management hubs this usage dropped off.
However, various factors are now combining to make Colombo Dockyard a very attractive option for UK ship managers and owners. For vessel trading in the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asian waters the repair facilities at this yard are of a high quality and provide convenient access.
On the shipbuilding front, Colombo Dockyard is able to construct specialist offshore support vessels, globally proven in the offshore operating field. During his visit, Stevenson was able to see firsthand the excellent logistic support available in Sri Lanka for routine repairs as well as for carrying out offshore-related projects.
