A delegation led by Phal Dessai, along with Mandrem MLA JitArolkar and Mayem MLA PremendraShet, visited the country’s largest shipping vessel manufacturing company, Cochin Shipyard Ltd, based in Kerala, to take stock of the new technologies adopted in the ship building activities.
“We were overwhelmed with the study tour at Cochin Shipyard Ltd. We learnt about innovative ideas adopted in the manufacturing of vessels which will certainly help commuters in Goa as well as boost the state’s tourism industry. The new technology vessels (ferry boats) will bear load and have maximum speed capacity”, said Phal Dessai.
He said that the river navigation department will submit a report to the state government for improvisation of waterways in the state. “We will place our report before the state government for introducing Ro-Ro ferry services and procuring new ferry boats”, said Phal Dessai.
He added that his department will see that water navigation routes in the state are used to the maximum, benefiting passengers and daily commuters.
