Britain's VT Group Gets 150 million pound contract for Trinidad patrol vessels

British defense contractor VT Group said Tuesday it won a contract to build and manage three Offshore Patrol Vessels, including associated training and long-term maintenance support, for supply to Trinidad.
The program is worth more than 150 million pounds (US$294.6 million; euro220.4 million), the company said in a statement.
Design work will start immediately on the 90 meter- (295 foot-) long ships, which will be used for a range of operations and maritime law enforcement tasks. They will be operated by the Trinidad and Tobago Coastguard and the first ship will be handed over in 2009.
