Mazagon Dock To Deliver Second Scorpene Class Submarine By Year End


The Mazagon Dock Limited (MDL) will deliver its second submarine, Khanderi, to the Navy by the end of this year, senior MDL officials said on Thursday. After commissioning its first submarine, Kalvari, in December 2017, the company will deliver five other submarines to the Navy by 2022.

According to the deal signed between Navy and MDL in October 2005, the company is required to build six scorpene class submarines — primarily diesel-electric attack submarines — in collaboration with M/s Naval group of France, under Project 75.

Senior MDL officials said that more than 50 per cent of its engineering content has been manufactured in India.
“We will deliver the second submarine to the Navy by the end of 2018. Most of its trials have been conducted.  The third submarine is being readied for sea trials and will be commissioned by next year.

We will deliver the remaining submarines in 2020, 2021 and 2022, respectively,” said Captain Rajiv Lath, Director of MDL submarine and heavy engineering. Read More
