Largest CGA ship

A 2,000-ton patrol ship built by Taiwan's largest private shipbuilder under a consignment contract with the Cabinet-level Coast Guard Administration (CGA) was launched from a shipyard in Kaohsiung Harbor yesterday.
The ship, christened The Tainan, is the largest patrol ship the CGA has ever ordered. The ship is 98.5m in length, 13.2m at its widest, and has a draft of 7.6m, with a maximum speed of 24 knots and a cruising range of over 7,500 nautical miles, according to the builder, Jong Shyn Shipbuilding Co.
Addressing the launch ceremony, CGA Minister Wang Ginn-wang said The Tainan will be a big help to boosting the CGA's patrol capability and strength.
