Australia gifted two Bay Class Vessel engines to the Sri Lankan Navy to be used for combatting illegal maritime activity.
 
Both engines have been installed in SLNS Mihikatha, one of two Bay Class Vessels gifted by the Australian Government in 2014 to bolster the Sri Lankan Navy’s maritime security capability.
 
Australia’s High Commissioner to Sri Lanka Bryce Hutchesson and Rear Admiral Piyal de Silva presided over the ceremony.
 
Both commended the close and longstanding relationship between Australia and Sri Lanka on people smuggling, transnational crime and sea and maritime search and rescue.
 
Later this year Australia will gift three Port Class vessels to the Sri Lankan Coast Guard.
