The Directorate of Naval Design (DND) which functions under the Engineering Directorate of the Navy conducted an awareness programme for potential boat builders in Sri Lanka.

The programme was conducted at the Naval Boat Building Yard in Welisara on Monday. On the directives of Navy Commander Vice Admiral Priyantha Perera and under the supervision of Director General Engineering Rear Admiral Ravi Ranasinghe, the DND plays a key role in developing craft that are tailored to the specific needs of the Navy.

The awareness programme also focuses on promoting the capabilities and supporting the industry in their boat design work.

During the event, the participants involved in the boat building industry locally were educated on the evolution of the DND since 2010, its state-of–the-art technology used in design work and availability of software and skilled manpower.

The boat building industry is an emerging export sector venture and a much-needed blue economy for the country. In this backdrop, the Navy plans to develop the DND to be the best state-owned ship design office in Sri Lanka by 2025.
