    Navy to finalise a raft of big ticket deals by year end
    PTI | Apr 19, 2017, 11.37 AM IST


    New Delhi, Apr 18 () After years of delay, Indian Navy is all set to sign a deal with a South Korean defence major for building 12 minesweeping vessels at a cost of nearly Rs 35,000 crore.

    Controller of the Navy's Warship Production and Acquisition Vice Admiral D M Deshpande said issues between Goa Shipyard and the South Korean collaborator in the project have been sorted out and the deal should be sealed by the end of this year.

    The Navy's existing fleet of six Soviet-origin minesweeping ships will be decommissioned by the end of 2018.

    The parliamentary standing committee on defence had recently criticised the government on the issue and asked it to make efforts to fill the gap in the Navy's capability.

    Deshpande said a contract for procurement of Landing Platform Docks (LPD) will also be finalised by the end of this year.

    The Navy had been planning to procure four 20,000-ton LPD at a cost of around USD 2 billion.

    "I can confidently say that by the end of the year, we should be able to sign the contract for the LPD," Deshpande said at an interactive session at FICCI.

    Asked about the Indigenous Aircraft Carrier (IAC-II) project, he said the Navy will be able to approach the Defence Ministry in the next two-three months for funds for the project as ground work on it being finalised.

    "It is a big ticket item. There is a lot of positivity both from the government side as well as the Navy. May be in two-three months, we will be in a position to take up the issue with the (defence) ministry to get funds," he said.

    It will be the second indigenous aircraft carrier and will be one of the largest across the world.

    Deshpande also said the Navy is looking at procuring 57 aircraft. The Navy had last year rejected the naval version of the indigenous Light Combat Aircraft Tejas built by Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd.

    "We are looking at 57 aircraft which we plan to induct. That is in the pipeline," he said.

    The senior Navy official said if the government strategic partnership model does not come through, then the Navy may look for buying submarines through other routes.

    "We need the submarines badly," he said.

    It may be a follow-up of the deal for scorpene submarines or there may be government-to-government discussions.

    Six Scorpene submarines are being built under Project 75. The submarines, designed by French naval defence and energy company DCNS, are being built by Mazagon Dock Ltd in Mumbai. MPB SMN

    http://m.ndtv.com/india-news/india-france-carry-out-joint-naval-exercise-1685527

    New Delhi: The Indian Navy began a joint maritime exercise with the French Navy on Monday at the Mediterranean Sea to further deepen combat coordination between the two navies.

    Guided missile destroyer INS Mumbai, stealth frigate INS Trishul and fleet tanker INS Aditya are taking part in the 'Varuna' exercise which will continue till April 30.

    The ships are part of the Indian Navy's overseas deployment to the Mediterranean Sea and West Coast of Africa and they arrived at Toulon port on southern France's Mediterranean coast earlier on Monday.


    The 'Varuna' series of exercises began in 2000 and have grown into an institutionalised form of interaction between the two navies.

    "The current visit seeks to underscore India's peaceful presence and solidarity with friendly and like-minded countries towards ensuring good order in the maritime domain and to strengthen the existing bonds between India and France," navy spokesperson Captain D K Sharma said.

    Interestingly, the exercise coincides with the visit of Vice Admiral Girish Luthra, Flag Officer Commanding-in-Chief Western Naval Command, to France.

    Luthra is scheduled to visit the French frigate FNS Auvergne, a French nuclear submarine unit, as well as an underwater weapons facility.

    He would also call on senior officials in France, including Vice Admiral Charles-Henri du Che, Commander-in- Chief of the Mediterranean Sea Area (CECMED). The visiting ships are a part of the Indian Navy's Western Naval Command.

    Defence cooperation between India and France has grown substantially in the recent past.

    Bilateral exercises such as 'Garuda', 'Shakti' and 'Varuna' have been a regular feature between the two nations.

    Damage control training facility inaugurated at Eastern Naval Command in Vizag
    By Express News Service | Published: 28th April 2017 05:53 AM |

    VISAKHAPATNAM : Flag Officer Commanding-in-Chief, Eastern Naval Command, Vice Admiral HCS Bisht inaugurated a state-of-the-art damage control training facility ‘Avjit’ here on Thursday.


    The naval officials said that the Avjit, a third in the series of training simulators, constructed for the Indian Navy by Goa Shipyard Ltd, has a dynamic simulator, which simulates ship motions, compartment flooding, failure of electrical power and machinery, thus providing a real-time environment to ship’s crew for carrying out urgent repairs to damaged underwater hull and ruptured pipelines of ships at sea.


    INS Vishwakarma, a premier training establishment of the Indian Navy, is located at Visakhapatnam for training Naval Constructor Officers, Shipwright Officers and Hull Artificers in warship design, construction and hull maintenance.

    Besides, refresher training in Nuclear Biological Chemical Defence and Damage Control (NBCD), fire fighting is also conducted in the establishment for personnel of the ENC.

    Induction of the new training simulator at INS Vishwakarma now adds a new dimension to the NBCD training of ship crew, as it will significantly enhance skill levels of naval personnel in carrying out emergency repairs to damaged underwater hull of ships in adverse conditions at sea, the officials opined.

    Indian Navy visits Saudi Arabia

    As part of the Indian Navy’s overseas deployment to the West Coast of Africa and the Mediterranean Sea, three Indian warships, INS Mumbai, INS Trishul and INS Aditya, arrived at Jeddah today (16 May 17) for a three-day visit. The warships will engage extensively with the Saudi Arabian Navy during their stay in the country. Apart from professional interactions, sports and social engagements are also planned, which would go a long way in enhancing co-operation and understanding between these important navies of the Indian Ocean Region (IOR).
    The visiting ships, headed by Rear Admiral RB Pandit, the Flag Officer Commanding Western Fleet (FOCWF), who is flying his flag on the guided missile destroyer INS Mumbai, are part of the Indian Navy’s Western Naval Command and are based at Mumbai.
    India and Saudi Arabia enjoy cordial and friendly relations, reflecting centuries old economic and socio-cultural ties. Bilateral trade between the countries has shown remarkable growth and has registered a three-fold increase in the last five years. The 1.8 million–strong Indian community in Saudi-Arabia is the largest expatriate community in the Kingdom and is the ‘most preferred community’ due to their expertise, sense of discipline, and law abiding nature. The Haj pilgrimage is another important component of the bilateral relations with over 1,65,000 Indians performing Haj every year.
    Building upon the rich and longstanding relations that have existed between India and Saudi Arabia, both nations have developed warm relations in several spheres. The current visit seeks to underscore India’s peaceful presence and solidarity with friendly countries of the Indian Ocean and, in particular, to strengthen the existing bonds between India and Saudi Arabia.
    Indian Naval assets have been increasingly deployed in recent times to address the main maritime concerns of the region, including piracy off the coast of Somalia. In addition, the Indian Navy has also been involved in assisting countries in the Indian Ocean Region with Hydrographic Survey, Search and Rescue and other such capacity-building and capability-enhancement activities. The current deployment into the Mediterranean will contribute towards the Indian Navy’s efforts to consolidate Inter Operability and forge strong bonds of friendship across the seas.
