OshoCorp Global is selected by Indian Army for development & supply of Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) of Russian origin T-72 and T-90 Tanks.
The Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) is an alternate source of power for the Fire Control System of the Tank and ancillaries, to cater for power requirements, while deployed in surveillance mode during a lull in battle, and during training, with a view to conserve the life of main engine of the Tank.
India-based OshoCorp Global CEO Ashutosh Khate explained,“initially we are required to develop two APUs each for T-90 and T-72 Tanks for trial & approval and subsequently produce a total order of 3257 Nos APUs. The project will help India towards self reliance in APU manufacturing technology for Tanks.
Col PK Juneja, Head Special Projects at OshoCorp explained, the present project cost is more than INR 1325 Crore (USD 190 Million) and it has huge potential to generate future domestic & export business which can be many times more than the current procurement of APUs as it is a continuous requirement keeping in mind the present inventory of T-72, T-90, Arjun Tank and BMPs held by the Indian armed forces and expected new tank supplies in coming years.
In the export market, the countries using Russian T-72, T-90 Tanks can be benefited by procurring India’s development of Auxiliary Power Unit for tanks.
