Jul 16, 2018 Sports Comments Off on CSBC wins contract to build 15 CGA patrol vessels
Taipei, CSBC Corp., Taiwan, which manufactures ships for civilian and military use, has won a contract from the Coast Guard Administration (CGA) for 15 100-tonne patrol vessels, with a bid of NT$2.806 billion (US$93.44 million), the CGA announced Monday.
The term of the contract started July 14 and will end Oct. 31, 2023, with the first patrol boat slated to be delivered by the end of 2020.
CSBC plans to assign its factory in Keelung to build the vessels, with construction scheduled to be fully completed by October 2023, the company said in a statement.
As the CGA plans to procure 17 more 100-tonne patrol boats next year, CSBC will also vie for that contract, the company said, adding that if it can secure the contract, it will help the Keelung yard to transform into a facility dedicated to building vessels for official or military use.
This year, the Navy and the CGA will roll out several construction projects in line with the country's indigenous Defense Submarine program, and CSBC will participate in these projects and fully support the government's national policy, the company added.
