DELAY IN INDUCTION OF SCORPENE SUBMARINE

New Delhi: Phalguna 05, 1936

Tuesday, 24 February 2015

The original schedule of delivery of the first submarine was December, 2012 which has since been revised.

The difficulties faced by M/s. MDL during the course of procurement of materials from foreign vendors had mainly led to the delay.

The builder shipyard has a contract with M/s DCNS, France for construction of Scorpene Submarines.  M/s DCNS deputes its personnel / consultant to guide the construction of the submarines as per the collaboration agreement.

The shipyard has undertaken augmentation of the manpower, infrastructure and industrial means in a phased manner to meet the production targets.  Production capabilities have also been augmented.

This information was given by Defence Minister Shri Manohar Parrikar in a written reply to Dr. Chandan Mitra in Rajya Sabha today.
