BHEL Committed to Aatmanirbhar Bharat – Awarded order for Main Guns of Frontline Ships
In a major boost to Defence Production under the ‘Make in India’ initiative and to achieve self-reliance in the critical field of Defence equipment, Indian Navy has placed an order on Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) for supply of two numbers Super Rapid Gun Mounts (SRGM), main guns standardised for all Warships of the Indian Navy.
BHEL has indigenised these Guns and has established dedicated, intricate manufacturing and inspection facilities at its Heavy Electrical Equipment Plant, Haridwar for production, installation & commissioning and lifecycle support of these Guns. Standardisation of these Guns by the Indian Navy for all major Warships has resulted in optimisation of cost and consolidation of expertise and self-reliance. BHEL is also working on an upgraded version of these Guns, with enhanced range, to cater to the future requirement of warships.
