Defexpo 2014: TKMS competes for Indian naval programmes

9th February 2014 - 10:33 GMT | by Tim Fish in Delhi


ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems is engaging in India on two submarine programmes – the Project P-75(I) diesel-electric acquisition and the Shishumar-class (Type 209/1500) upgrade.

A spokesman from TKMS told Shephard that its submarine manufacturing arm, HDW, received an RFP for the Shishumar upgrade at the end of 2013 and would be responding to the proposal by March.
