DCNS and SEC Industries milestone on Scorpene submarine
SEC Industries and DCNS have inaugurated new workshop facilities and delivered, after successful factory acceptance tests, the cofferdam doors coamings for the Indian P75 Scorpene submarines.
The facilities were inaugurated by M.M. Pallam Raju, Minister of State for Defence, in the presence of the French Ambassador to India, François Richier.
In September 2011, DCNS India signed a contract with SEC Industries for the manufacture of high technological equipment for the P75 Scorpene submarines. A second contract was signed in May 2012 for additional items. These contracts cover an extensive transfer of technology, running at full speed. The contract is part of the indigenisation programme implemented by DCNS India under the P75 Mazagon purchased materials (MPM) contracts.
