Adani Mulls Making Saab Gripen Fighter Jet At Mihan


Adani Group, which has tied up with Sweden’s Saab AB, has shortlisted Mihan-SEZ as one of its probable sites for setting up an aircraft manufacturing unit. The company, which forged an alliance with the Swedish aircraft maker in September, plans to make Gripen fighter jets in India, if it bags a contract from the Indian Air Force (IAF).

Senior officials of Maharashtra Airport Development Company (MADC) said that a team from Adani visited the SEZ recently. Nagpur is one of the sites which the company has shortlisted for its proposed project. Adani Group would need around 100 acres for a unit to make fighter planes here.

If the deal works out, this would bring one more major defence unit to Mihan-SEZ. Reliance, which held the ground breaking ceremony for its unit here recently, plans to start production by first quarter of 2018. Reliance has tied up with France’s Dassault. It will be carrying out works under the offset agreement arising out of the purchase of 36 Rafale aircraft by the IAF. It may begin with making aircraft spares, with plans to eventually make the entire plane. Read More…
