India’s Goa Shipyard has floated a global Expression of Interest (EoI) for mine countermeasure vessels (MCMV) project. The EoI to manufacture six MCMV, costing around Rs. 32,000-crore, have been sent to prequalify foreign shipyards that would participate in the venture. The tender has been issued for the third time. The Indian Navy requires at least 24 MCMVs urgently.
