    Cochin Shipyard surged 10% to Rs 568 on the National Stock Exchange (NSE) after the company bagged an order worth Rs 5,400 crore from the Indian Navy.

    “The company has received communication from the Ministry of Defence (Navy) that the company has emerged as the L1 bidder for 16 X ASW SWC Project for the Indian Navy,” Cochin Shipyard said in a statement.

    The contract for eight vessels at a cost of about Rs 5,400 crore is expected to be concluded with the Ministry of Defence after due process, it added.

    The company said the order was bagged against a competitive tender issued by the Ministry of Defence in which both private and public sector yards had participated.

    The trading volumes on the counter more than doubled with a combined 3.15 million shares changed hands on the BSE and NSE till 02:43 PM.

    The company had raised Rs 1,468 crore through initial public offer (IPO) in August, 2017. The company issued shares at price of Rs 432 per share to qualified institutional buyers (QIBs) and non-institutional investors (NIIs). The retail investors and employees were offered shares at a price of Rs 411, a discount of Rs 21 per equity share.

    Make in India: Government shipyards win Rs 12,000 crore deal to supply 16 ASW craft to Navy

    Under Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 'Make in India' programme, government shipyards are moving ahead of their private sector rivals in warship building as they have emerged winners in a Rs 12,000-crore deal to supply 16 anti-submarine warfare (ASW) craft to the Navy.

    "As tenders for the Rs 12,000-crore deal were opened, the shipping ministry's Cochin Shipyard Limited and defence ministry's Garden Reach Shipyard Limited (GRSE) emerged as the two lowest bidders," a defence ministry source told Mail Today.

    This is the third open tender deal involving competitive bids in the recent past which has gone to public sector firms. Recently, the Hindustan Shipyard Limited (HSL) won the contract for building two diving support vessels (DSVs) worth Rs 2,020 crore after it emerged as the lowest bidder.

    Under the ASW shallow water craft deal, CSL emerged as the lowest bidder and GRSE the second lowest. The second lowest bidder will have to build the eight crafts at the price offered by the lowest bidder as per the tender issued by the Navy.

    As per the defence procurement procedure, the company offering the lowest price for a particular weapon system is given the contract among the firms which meet technical requirements specified in the tender document.

    When the private sector firms were allowed to bid for defence contracts, it was felt that they would be quoting lower prices than government firms, but this has proved to be otherwise.

    In the recent past, there have been cases where Navy and Coast Guard projects have been delayed by private shipyards and in some of the cases, the delay has been by many years.

    In one such case, a Gujarat-based shipyard has been able to supply only one out of six survey vessels ordered by the Navy even 10 years after signing the deal. In another case, a major private shipyard has not supplied even a single patrol vessel out of the contract for five signed more than six years ago.

    Some of the major private sector shipyards are facing serious financial constraints and were cleared by the government for receiving tenders only after conditional clearances were granted to them by the defence ministry's finance wing.

    Due to the improved performance of defence shipyards, the Goa Shipyard Limited was nominated by the government for partnering with the Russians for manufacturing four Talwar-Class follow-on warships worth more than Rs 20,000 crore.

    Can anyone confirm this?? India Today seems to only carry this news + anyone have the design propose by GRSE?

    Advanced Light Towed Array Sonar (ALTAS) on Naval Platforms. ALTAS system consists of mainly four subsystems i.e. Wet end system, Launch/Recovery unit (LRU), On-board Electronics and System Software.
    upload_2017-10-20_23-23-41.png

    The Wet End System consists of Transmitter and Receiver Arrays and Tow Cable assembly. The Transmitter Array is housed in a Vertically stabilised body and is hooked on to the seamless Tow Cable with linear receiver Array. The Launch/Recovery unit consists of a Heavy Duty Winch for Deployment, Retrieval and Stowage of tow cable assembly and Receiver Array and a hydraulically operated robotic handling gears for the launch/recovery of the Vertically stabilised body. The receiver array is linked to the on-board electronics through fibre optic telemetry. The Tow Cable Assy Receiver Array Transmitter Array Launch/Recovery Unit On-board Electronics on-board electronics consists of transmit waveform generators including power amplifiers for generating the acoustic pulse and specific hardware modules for signal processing and display. The system software which resides on the on-board hardware modules implements advanced signal processing algorithms for target detection and localisation and presents the results in innovative display formats.

    No...that's not P-17A. In fact that's not any Indian ship at all - even the radar mast is not MFSTAR. It's a Thales integrated mast.

    I'm not able to place my finger on which class of ship this is yet...give me a couple minutes.

    This is the real image - designed probably to advertise Thales I-Mast 400.

    Someone just photoshopped "P-17A" on the hull side and put GRSE name under it.

    Navies deploy minesweepers to secure harbours by locating and destroying mines.

    A Rs 32,640-crore project to fill gaps in the navy’s mine warfare capability has hit commercial complications, with India and South Korea struggling to hammer out a deal to build mine-counter measure vessels (MCMVs, or minesweepers) in the country, Hindustan Times has learnt.

    Navies deploy minesweepers to secure harbours by locating and destroying mines.

    Twelve MCMVs are to be built at Goa Shipyard Limited (GSL) in collaboration with Korea‘s Kangnam Corporation under the Make in India programme.

    India was hoping to sign the contract in August 2016.

    “Some commercial issues have delayed the deal. We are working diligently to resolve those issues,” GSL chairman Rear Admiral Shekhar Mital told HT. “It is important to address each other’s concerns in such complex programmes.”

    The navy needs to swiftly scale up its mine warfare capability.

    Its present mine counter-measure force consists of six vessels bought from the erstwhile Soviet Union in the late 1970s. Navy officers said the force requires an estimated 24 minesweepers to secure major harbours in the country.

    The scenario is likely to worsen in the coming years as the existing minesweeper fleet is on its way to be decommissioned by next year.

    The navy would be without a single minesweeper till 2021, warned a March 2017 parliamentary report on the alarming decline in naval force levels. Navy sources said any further delay in closing the deal would mean that the navy could be without minesweepers even beyond 2021.

    The construction of the first vessel is supposed to begin in April 2018, and deliveries of all 12 MCMVs are to be completed between 2021 and 2026. The vessels are expected to have 60% indigenous content.

    GSL has spent hundreds of crores on creating infrastructure to kick off construction of the vessels.

    Facilities have been created for building glass-reinforced plastic hulls, a design that reduces the ship’s magnetic signature and allows safer navigation through waters that are mined. These underwater weapons can detonate on contact, or be activated by magnetic and acoustic signatures.
