Earlier, Ranjoy Plastic Industry had successfully developed a fibre-glass vessel which capable of carrying 100 to 150 people at a time. The newly developed fiberglass vessel branded as ‘Loktak Express’ was commissioned in Loktak Lake a month back with an aim to solve the inconveniences faced by people living in and around Loktak Lake in terms of connectivity. The state’s Plastic Industry is the first in the region to successfully develop such a huge motor-operated fibre-glass vessel which can ferry people from one end of the sprawling water body to another. Apart from ferrying passengers on water surface, the fibre-glass vessel can also conveniently transport weighty construction materials such as sand, brick or steel. The fibre glass vessel was exclusively developed on the request of one Jugeshwar of Thanga Karang island for public transport in the island at the cost Rs 4.5 lakhs.
