Reliance Defence and Engineering (RDEL) has signed Master Ship Repair Agreement (MSRA) with US Navy. Earlier in January 2017, Reliance Shipyard qualified by US Navy as an approved contractor to perform complex repair and alternation services for the US Navy’s Seventh Fleet vessels operating in the region.
Reliance Shipyard at Pipavav, Gujarat is the first shipyard in India to have received MSRA Certification to undertake servicing and repairing works for the vessels of Seventh Fleet. The fleet has about 100 vessels of different types, including auxiliaries. Reliance Shipyard has been selected after a detailed site survey by US Government representatives during end-October 2016.
