SP's MAI - - MILITARY -

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.
