Eye on China in IOR, India issues tender for Rs 50,000 crore submarine project
NEW DELHI: The go nment on Tuesday issued the tender for the long-pending Rs 50,000 crore (almost $7 billion) project to construct six new-generation conventional stealth submarines with foreign collaboration
The defence ministry issued the RFP (request for proposal) to defence shipyard Mazagon Docks (MDL) and private ship-builder Larsen & Toubro, who in turn will tie-up with one of the five shortlisted foreign companies to submit techno-commercial bids for the mega diesel-ric submarine-building programme called `Project-75 India (P-75I)’.
印度国防部向造船厂马扎岗船坞有限公司(MDL)和私人造船商Larsen & Toubro公司发出了RFP(征求建议书)，他们将与入围的五家外国公司中的一家合作，提交名为“Project-75 India (P-75I)”的大型柴油电力潜艇建造项目的技术商业投标。
The foreign ship-builders are Naval Group-DCNS (France), Rosoboronexport (Russia), ThyssenKrupp Marine Sy ems (Germany), Navantia (Spain) and Daewoo (South Korea).
The sion of the wng bid after submission and the inking of the actual contract is likely to take well over a year from now. Thereafter, it will take another seven years for the first new submarine to roll out, with the sed foreign firm providing transfer of technology (ToT) for vessel design, maintenance and setting up the production line in India. The other five submarines will subsequently roll out one per year, as per the proposed timeline.
The submarines will be armed with a total of 18 land-attack cruise missiles and heavyweight torpedoes as well as equipped with fuel-cell based air-independent propulsion (AIP) for greater underwater endurance.
The Rajnath Singh-led Defence Acquisitions Council on June 4 had cleared the decks for P-75I, which will be the first project under the “strategic partnership” policy promulgated in May 2017 to boost indigenous defence production.
What is in Name
2007 the requirement came and now 2021 RFI issued. See the condition of our decision making. We have bigger enemies within our country. Who needs China or Pakistan! We talk too much than actually work.
Congress is drooling at the amount it can scam if in power
In the last 7 years not even a single made or make in project has been started!!! So where has all the fuel loed money gone?
Even BJP is already drowned..in it..France is investigating Rafel deal...
Now Pappu will start screaming that Modi will pocket 1.30 lac crore from this tender of 50,000 crore. He screamed the same figures from the Rafale contract
Rafale France has already started investigations!!!
Hope no idiots will come screaming that this money should be used in healthcare, education, farming subsidy etc. Our idiotic ancestors were so weak that they allowed British to rule us for centuries. Hope the modern age idiots will understand the importance of strong military
This is one old project. By the time this will be delivered, the gap with china would have magnified again
After making 3 indigenous Scorpene submarines in India, why is India still buying subs from other countries?
Nobody is stupid enough to Transfer any Technology to India. Indians begged for F35/F22 but US only give India dressed up F16 called F21.
public money wasted in this !??. instead public health care sy em can be improved,,it is need of the hour,, citizens will be happy,, govt always should spend public money only for the public welfare !??
So that Indians reproduce uncontrolled and put a burden on healthcare?
Afyer 4-5 years..the country which took contract will start investigation as done in Rafel deal...
SC acquited BJP of this so called "scandal".
Why bring in China, which already has world largest navy? India should focus on competing with Pakistan.
They may have largest navy but technologically it's nothing compared to US!
lol, this is not a competition with China. This is about building strong deterrent . Pakistani Navy doesn't hold a candle compared to ours.
Anil Ambani would be looking forward to ending bankruptcy sooner than expected!
What is important in present times. Money to buy lots and lots of vaccines or these submarines. Saving lives, fast vaccinating India's population particularly those population in the most affected states which are economic drivers of our nation. This should be where this go nment should be spending and not on submarines, which can wait till India is back in it's feet.
I can bet with anyone that first of these submarine will not enter service before 2040. Such is the pathetic state of our procurement
Learn from China!
