>The keel of TCSG Dost laid down

>With a ceremony, the keel of the first search and rescue ship TCSG Dost was laid down.

As the construction of the ship was already started in May 2008, there was no keel laying in traditional sense but block erecting. Her launching is scheduled for May 2010

TCSG Dost is the first ship of a batch of 4 ships at RMK Marine Shipyard. The design of these ships is based on the Sirio class vessels produced by Italian Fincantieri.

With the commissioning of these ships Coast Guard will be able to perform its duties mainly search and rescue in sea state 5 and higher.
