Eye on AMCA fighter project & IAF’s Rafale, French engine maker’s MRO facility in India soon
Giving a further boost to the Narendra Modi government's ambitious 'Aatmanirbhar Bharat' campaign, French engine-maker Safran will set up a Maintenance Repair and Overhaul facility for leading-edge aviation propulsion (LEAP) commercial aircraft engines. The MRO facility will be set up by the company as part of its offset commitments. As per reports, Safran will invest $150 million in setting up the facility. Sources told HT that the MRO facility, said to be based either in Hyderabad or Bengaluru, will apparently be announced tomorrow when Safran CEO Olivier Andres meets Indian Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia. It also aims to further its proposal to co-develop with DRDO's Gas Turbine Research Establishment a 110kn thrust engine for the fifth-generation advanced medium combat aircraft twin-engine (AMCA) fighter project.
消息人士告诉《印度斯坦时报》，MRO厂据说将位于海德拉巴或班加罗尔，显然会在明天赛峰集团首席执行官Olivier Andres会见印度民航部长Jyotiraditya Scindia时宣布。
We need some big establishments like this in the East and North-East as well...
But looking forward to seeing SAFRAN set up their MRO facility in India.
I hope India select France as the partner for AMCA engine development. Never select US, it comes with a lot of strings attached.
US and France competing heavily... First US sabotaged France's deal with Australia and now US offers India for development of Engine which they earlier denied

India's defence industry will reach new heights
one thing is clearly visible how this Govt. working tirelessly on all front to make India great and protect the interest of country
we can't put our forces at risk. One side is Pakistan, a hostile neighbour and other side is dragon China.
Well done, India!
India greatly needed an engine MRO(maintenance, repair and operations) facility...we have to take our prototype engines to Russia by air for testing and operations.
I am amazed at what PM Modi and his Cabinet has done in 7 years. I am at loss to see what India could have achieved in 70 years only if Nehru and his family has not used India as a personal property.

French assistance don't come with terms and conditions like US, who used it's help to align its ally for its own interest
It would be better if we perfect our indigenous Kaveri engines. As such only recently the engine core has been proven stable. Let's persevere more.
What current BJP government is doing for Bharat is beyond words. It is happening first time in these seven decades.
through private sector equity participation in future defense procurement programs the Indian Air Force should acquire a small fleet of 28 - 33 brand new F-35A Lightning II (Block 40) stealth multi role fighter that will serve as a learning tool as the twin-engined AMCA is being developed . . .
让私营部门参与未来国防采购项目，印度空军应该采购28 - 33架全新的F-35A闪电II (Block 40)隐形多用途战机，双引擎AMCA的研发可以借鉴…
Be weary of being reliant Foreign on unrealiable partners, look at huawei, Russia UAC factories etc
This is the way to treat these western companies. Transfer technology and manufacture in India. Thank you Mr. Modi.
France is reliable partner of india
Now i understand why modij and macron was so close
It is a sad reminder of our inability to manufacture our own fighter jet engine.
Divided by continents united in facing I$lamic terrorism
INDIA need to INVEST heavily in metallurgy to manufacture Turbine blades of highest quality. Learn alloy technology. Metallurgy is where india lacks. 3D print alloy parts
We need to develop our own jet engines
These kinds of news r so soothing to the ears India under the prestigious leadership of NARENDRA MODI JI is develo at a rapid pace his vision to see India becoming a developed nation, a world leader nd a superpower is actually becoming a reality India is progressing in different sectors of the economy whether it's the agriculture, public, banking , private or the defence India is making its mark in all over the world nd showing it's TRUE capability nw it's time for us Indians to unite together to stand along with MODI JI nd support his mission to make India great once again
JAI HIND JAI BHARAT VANDE MATRAM
Modiji govt thinking about our
future that's way day by day
most of the Indians support him.
Jai Ho Hindustan
Jai Ho France
Jai Shree Ram,relationship should continue forever
One thing about french collabaration for engine than us or uk is trust . Which is most valuable thing and still no amount of money can buy it .
The only solution to all problems and pain points of India is to consistently grow at a rate of 9+% for next 2 decades, just like China did. That will make India truly invincible.
Let me use this platform to tell the government of india, france is 10 times more reliable partner than usa.
This is the same french company that had promised to do technology transfer of the Rafale and yet hasn't helped us with any kind of blueprints nor has contributed to help in the development of Kaveri engine, we shouldn't be dependent on these outsiders for our defence needs and should really push the idea of self reliance
110kn engine certification at 2035, is something which needs to be more aggressive, by 2035 Chinese would have gone light years' ahead
