JFD wins £193-million significant Indian Navy submarine rescue contract
JFD, the leading global subsea operations and engineering company and part of James Fisher and Sons plc, announced that it has been awarded a £193-million contract by the Indian Navy for the provision and long-term support of its submarine rescue capability.
The contract includes the design, build and supply of two complete submarine rescue systems, and a 25-year all-inclusive annual maintenance contract. This further enhances JFD’s worldwide sub- marine rescue service presence following last year’s announcement award of a £12.1-million contract by the UK Ministry of Defence for operation of the NATO submarine rescue system (NSRS). With this additional contract, JFD will be delivering submarine rescue services to six of the most advanced navies in the world confirming the company’s leadership in this elite niche.
JFD will provide two complete fly-away submarine rescue systems, including deep search and rescue vehicles (DSRV), launch and recovery systems (LARS) equipment, transfer under pressure (TUP) systems, and all logistics and support equipment required to operate the service. The equipment will be designed, manufactured, integrated and tested by JFD prior to shipping to India for final commissioning and trials.
