DCNS, Pipavav to address India's naval needs
Looks like the decision has been made to go with more DCN submarines.
Not necessary. Pipavav is a private shipyard that is trying to get hold of some Indian naval contracts. It's more of a private partnership and they will explore possible sales to Indian navy.
Definitely a boost to domestic production of the warships.
Expect more competition between MDL & Pipavav.
At the end its the DCNS that is going to grab the next submarine tender. French are getting better at this
Sent via Tapatalk from a galaxy far far away
French (DCNS) is also going to bag the LHD/LPD tender (Mistral Class)
is San-Antonio is in run for the same ..??
Pipavav has been cleared to help alleviate some of the backlog of MDL's submarine production. The tie up with DCN points to the French option.
Was that part of Off-set clause do think? May be negotiations have already matured.
For the Scorpene? Those should have been arranged years ago. This is for something new.
This news of Pipav doing some of DCN Submarine back log! Do you have a source to this?
MDL's submarine backlog... it is whatever they are working on which is why this tie up is so interesting.
MDL has had many problems with the scorpene, but will be the only source for the submarines.
Very interesting statement from the Press Release:
DCNS, Pipavav to address Indiaâ€™s naval needs
The French defence major DCNS and Indiaâ€™s integrated defence company Pipavav plan to enter into a strategic partnership to construct strategic assets, including modern warships for the Indian Navy and Indian Coast Guard, an official said here Monday.
This will be effected through a strategic partnership for bringing DCNS technologies, methods and skills into Pipavav, Indiaâ€™s first and largest integrated defence company.
â€œThrough the P75 Scorpene submarines, ongoing indigenisation programme and DCNS India, we are working to enlarge our footprint in India,â€ said DCNS chairman and CEO Patrick Boissier.
A 2.6 billion euro group, DCNS is known for its high-tech and very efficient platforms like Scorpene submarines, Mistral-Class LPDs, FREMM frigates and innovative Gowind vessels, among many others.
â€œDCNS and Pipavav are to provide India with advanced expertise on naval ships. The synergies between Indiaâ€™s largest integrated shipyard and proficiency of the largest European naval defence company would allow cost effective and timely manufacturing of high-class vessels for all customers,â€ Pipavav chairman Nikhil Gandhi said.
The partnership will boost Indiaâ€™s drive for self-reliance in the field of defence manufacturing and create a large number of local jobs besides strengthening Indo-French strategic relationship in the defence sector, he added.
Pipavav Defence & Offshore Engineering Co. Ltd is among the leading companies in the Indian defence sector engaged in naval shipbuilding, repairs and dry-docking, with capacity to build all types of assets required by the Indian Navy and the Indian Coast Guard.
Its major achievement includes construction of 74,500 dwt Panamax dry bulk carrier, the largest such vessel ever constructed in India.

The 50:50 joint venture named Mazagon Dock Pipavav will implement part of the existing orders of Mazagon Dock of Rs 1,00,000 crore ($21.69 billion) and also bid for future defence contracts in India. "This partnership is formed primarily to fastforward the process of warships and submarine contracts held CURRENTLY by the MDL," Nikhil Gandhi, chairman of Pipavav Defence had earlier said.
Pipavav, Mazagaon Dock to set up JV; to build warships for Navy - The Economic Times
I think French defence industry is comprehensive and can provide us with all we want, in terms of off the shelf weapons/systems and JVs to make one.
What is the share composition of this JV?? Normal 26:74 or something else?
Why wont DCN give some work to MDL etc.,? They can go on JV and bid for European contracts and get a decent share rather than let the business go to South Korea and China.
DCN makes warships and submarines, that market isn't really going to China and S. Korea. ThyssenKrupp needs to merge with DCN to dominate the world's SSK market.
Time to learn French.
So, it is the French who are making inroads into India!
