Naval Group elected best industrial partner of the "Make in India" program

Defense industries are fond of price and self-congratulation. But some prices say more than others. This is the case with the “Best Foreign OEM supporting Make in India” prize awarded by the Indian authorities on the occasion of the DefExpo fair which is currently being held near the town of Lucknow, 200 km east of New Delhi. And this year, it is the French group Naval Group which is honored by this award, concerning the P75 Kalvari attack submarine program, of which two units out of 6 have already been delivered to the Indian Navy. .

The P75 program is part of a comprehensive program aimed at acquiring the industrial skills to develop and build self-propelled conventional submarines in India. Initially relating to 24 units, it was subsequently divided into 2 programs, the P75 relating to 6 ships with conventional propulsion, and the P75i relating to 6 ships equipped with anaerobic propulsion. It was the French DCNS, which would later become Naval Group, in partnership with Thales and the Indian shipyards Mazagon Dock Limited, who won the P75 contract in 2005.
