Ever since the yard’s first Ship “JALA USHA”, a 8000 DWT steam ship launched on the 14 Mar 1948, by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India, HSL has gone a long way in building a range of ships numbering one hundred and sixty seven of various types of sizes. The range varies from conventional Bulk Carriers, General Cargo and Supply Vessels, Patrol Vessels to highly sophisticated Drill Ships covering Defence and Oil Sectors apart from conventional Mercantile marine. Thanks to its valued and varied clientele, HSL has achieved a phenomenal growth and success in achieving versatility in building ships of different product mix.

SAGAR BHUSHAN a highly sophisticated and complex Drill Ship built for the first time in India for ONGC is just an example of HSL’s capability in high-tech products. Also, the yard had constructed and delivered Bulk Carriers up to 53000T DWT diamond series Bulk carriers for M/s Good Earth Maritime Ltd., as well.
