India refused to install an anaerobic engine of its own design on new submarines

14

India is abandoning plans to equip six new diesel-electric submarines with an air-independent power plant (VNEU) of its own production. Infodefensa informs about it.

According to the newspaper, India's refusal from its own anaerobic engine for a new program for the construction of non-nuclear submarines is associated with fears of disrupting the timing of the development and production of submarines. Thus, the presence of VNEU of Indian production on new submarines is removed, and this was previously one of the main conditions of the announced tender for the construction of six nuclear submarines for Indian fleet.



It is noted that now new opportunities are opening up for tender participants, since they can offer their own ready-made solutions for their own VNEU. By the way, Russia is also participating in a tender proposing the joint development of a new diesel-electric submarine based on a submarine of the Amur-1650 project with VNEU.

At the same time, the development of our own anaerobic plant continues. In early March this year, the Defense Research and Development Organization of India (DRDO) announced the completion of the stage of bench tests of the VNEU of its own design and the transition to testing on board the submarine. It is specified that a VNEU on fuel cells is being developed in India. Developed by DRDO in cooperation with Larsen & Toubro and Thermax.

Earlier it was reported that the Indian Ministry of Defense plans to equip VNEU submarines of the Kalvari class, anaerobic installations were to be installed on the fifth and sixth submarines of the series. Also in the plans of the military was the installation of the Indian VNEU on a series of new nuclear submarines.

      "Russia is also participating in a tender for the joint development of a new diesel-electric submarine based on a submarine of the Amur-1650 project with VNEU."

      Have you decided to test a new project on the Indians ?!

        Yes, we do not understand at all - either VNEU is ready, then no. They want to build submarines for the Baltic, but it is not even clear what project, and even more so whether there will be VNEU. We won't finish sawing for more than 20 years. Give money to KB or something, that's the right thing.

          Unfortunately, it is clear that it is not ready yet.

          They have already given so much money that it is time to "change girls", not furniture.

        Tests on Indians are out of the question ...
        Written in plain text: "Joint development".
        Which means: "We have now to offer you anything, we haven’t come up with anything yet! But, give me money, we’ll think of something for you! You look - and it will work!"

        This is what co-development means.

      ... is associated with fears of disrupting the timing of the development and production of submarines.

      Perhaps this is a smart decision for India as well.
      Looking at the Chinese "naval copier", there is no time to waste ...

      The Russian Navy buys in India equipment for underwater communication between submarines. It looks like VNEU will buy for the same diesel-electric submarines of the Amur-1650 project.
      For both "Ruby" and "Malachite" do not moo, do not calve.

      Knowing the history of Indian work and inventions in the field of weapons, this process is not fast. Not yet 30 years have passed since the beginning of development. laughing laughing lol

          I don’t want to compare, I think this is a dead-end idea, given the current level of technology development

      Less than five years later, the Indians realized what to do at VNEU, not to shoot stupid films))))
