KNUD E. HANSEN is collaborating with Smart Engineering & Design Solutions (India) to deliver two new ship designs (four vessels) for the Andaman & Nicobar Administration of India.

The larger of the two designs is earmarked for a modern sea link between the Indian mainland and the Andaman and Nicobar islands with a passenger capacity of 1,200 and carrying up to 1,000 tons of mixed cargo. The smaller vessels will be running on an interisland service and are designed to carry 500 passengers and 150 tons of mixed cargo.

All four ships will be built at the state-owned Cochin Shipyard in India and sail under the Indian flag. Both designs will replace existing tonnage. The administration currently operates the NICOBAR (built 1991), NANCOWRY (1992), AKBAR (1971), HARSHA VARDHANA (1974) and SWARAJ DWEEP (1999).
