ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems will showcase a wide range of submarines, missile systems and naval surface ships at the Defexpo India 2014, New Delhi, from February 6 to 9.
The company will exhibit HDW Class 214 submarine, HDW Class 209/1500 submarine, IDAS Missile System, Blohm+Voss Class 124 frigate, Blohm+Voss MEKO A-200 SAN frigate and Kockums FLEXpatrol stealth patrol vessel.
As a leading full-service naval shipbuilding systems and solutions provider, ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems enjoys longstanding strategic ties with India. For more than a quarter of a century, the Indian Navy has been operating four HDW Class 209/1500 submarines, locally known as the “Shishumar” class. The after-sales service provider Marine Logistik GmbH (MARLOG) – which was integrated into ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems last year – has been a partner to the Indian Navy for more than two decades, delivering spare parts for the “Shishumar” class. This successful cooperation is now being continued under the new affiliation.
At present, ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems is in discussions with the Indian Navy to support the upgrading of two of these vessels through the integration of the latest weapons and sensors, including HARPOON anti-ship missiles. Furthermore, the company is supplying sophisticated composite structures for the P-28 corvettes currently being built at Garden Reach Shipbuilders & Engineers Ltd.
