    SE “Zorya”-“Mashproject” signed the contract with Indian customer for delivery of gas turbine power plants for ships that will be built at Mumbai shipyard. The contract is concluded with the parties following the results of the tender of 2012. Under the terms of the contract the enterprise will equip four new ships (Project 15B) during the period of 2016 to 2019.

    The enterprise already equips the third series of such ships. In 1993-1995 the power units were delivered to India for three ships of the Project 15 (Delhi type) and in 2005-2006 for three ships of the Project 15A (Kolkata type).

    The enterprise will produce an updated gas turbine power unit with microprocessor control system.

    Ukraine was not able to supply power plant for P15A, it was one of the causes of delays on the project.

    The contract was later awarded to Russian for P15 A

    Is there any plan for production of those engines within the country ? Is it too difficult to build them locally or just due to economics they have to be imported ??

    GE LM2500 will power the P17A frigates. Isn't it?
    They will be license manufactured at HAL facility.
    There was some mention of the same in HAL connect.
    I shall dig-up and post here.

    Edit: They power the Shivalik class frigates also.

    Submarine-building continues to remain the Achilles heel for Indian shipyards.

    Why not introduce/expand the number of naval/marine engineering seats in our engineering institutes ? At least the workforce-skill shortage can be addressed through this.

    At a very minimum, by getting young engineers from this stream into apt naval-institutions, the rate of knowledge-absorption, being transferred by the likes of DCNS & Russian design-bureaus could be increased optimally.

    just a passing comment for comment's sake, because I can't think of anything else :)

    It can do more than 12mv, People at Cochin are working on a bigger generator for more power output..

    With present generator it is applicable to smaller Corvette like P-28 and offshore class ships..

    Logistic wise, Single turbine type like LM 2500 for all Navy ships makes lot of sense, no doubt.

    It can be configured for different power options, up to 26 MW for latest version, I think.

    Maybe US stuff is sanction prone, so like IAF with MMRCA, they wanted second source of critical technology.

    Once KMGT comes through, power requirement up to 12-15MW, or even heavy destroyers with 2 x KMGTs (22 - 30 MW) seems possible.

    Damn, this Kaveri thing becoming successful is actually critical for us......

    Don't hold your hopes for Kaveri marine engine. It was just a spin off from discarded Kaveri prototypes in hopes of getting more grants.

    Why? What is wrong with it being a spin-off of a project?
    Details will be welcomed.
