Colombo Dockyard delivers 80-passenger vessel to Northern Province

Colombo Dockyard successfully delivered the 80-passenger vessel built for the Northern Provincial Council on 10th January in Delft. The passenger vessel named Neduntharakai is capable of transporting 80 passengers and shall be deployed for transferring civilians from Kurikadduvan jetty of Jaffna peninsula to Delft Island, a distance of 8 - 9 nautical miles, one way.

This steel hull passenger vessel has good stability and excellent sea keeping qualities and shall be able to operate in rough weather conditions unlike fibre glass hull boats.The passenger vessel has been designed and built considering the low water depths prevailing in the operational areas, so that it could traverse through these shallow waters easily.

The vessel has been built to Indian register of shipping classification society requirements. Being the premier shipbuilding and ship repairing facility in Sri Lanka building vessels for operation worldwide, Colombo Dockyard considers it a national obligation to assist in the development of the maritime transportation infrastructure in Sri Lanka and are ready to pledge very special concessionary terms and conditions to fulfil the local requirement, said D.V. Abeysinghe the Managing Director/ Chief Executive Officer.
