Ambitious Project for Indian Navy

The Indian cabinet has approved awarding contract for the construction of three air defence ships (ADS) for the Navy to Cochin Shipyard. It is believed that the ADS is based on a design developed by French company Direction des Constructions Naval. However, the design has been modified by the Naval Design Organisation to suit the local requirements. Navy chief Admiral Madhvendra Singh said, “the Navy proposes to have at least three carriers, so that one each can be deployed on the West and East coasts, while the maintenance on the third one can be carried out.”

The displacement of the proposed ship, which will carry a full squadron of fighter aircraft, will be over 30,000 tonne. Early last year, it was reported that the ADS would be ready by 2008 but some concerns were voiced that the pace of modernising naval shipyards affects some of aspects of ADS construction. LM 2500 gas turbines have been selected for the Navy Frigate and the ADS programmes. GE Marine Engines has a manufacturing and technical license assistance agreement with Hindustan Aeronautics for the assembly, inspection and test of LM 2500 marine gas turbines.
