The Ukrainian engines will be set on new multi-role frigates that are soon to be built in the Indian shipyard
Ukrainian state defense concern Ukroboronprom will supply its engines for the vessels of the Indian Navy. Press office of Ukroboronprom reported that on September 8.
“State Defense Enterprise Zorya-Mashproekt, which is a part of Ukrooboronprom signed a contract with Indian company Goa Shipyard Limited so as to supply two modern aggregates M7H2 for the needs of the Navy of this country”, reads the message.
M7H2 gas turbine turbo power units include the modernized microchip control systems; their power output is 58,000 HP, with the opportunity to develop the speed of 30 knots.
The Ukrainian engines will be set on new multi-role frigates that are soon to be built in the Indian shipyard. According to the agreement, the first engine is supposed to be ready in December 2022, the second in July 2023.
Within the last two weeks, Zorya-Mashproekt made contracts with Indian contractors by total worth of USD 100 million.
Goa Shipyard Limited is the state shipbuilding company located on India’s west coast.
NOTE: For more information on this transaction and how Russia continues to fail in it’s defense deliveries a related article from February 07, 2020 here:
Not exactly Indian ships! Moskali ships built in India…oh, with Ukrainian engines. Get a kick out of this from almost two years ago…
At the very end of the article linked above:
“While Russia’s defense industry has been tasked with building copies of the M90FR gas turbine engine as a result of the Ukraine sanctions from 2014, a new engine is not expected to be ready before 2020.”
Those poor Moskali tried for a year and a half and still failed. LMAO. I hope Ukraine is making a mint off these two engines. I also hope India doesn’t turn around and sell them to Putin too.
I’m glad that Ukraine reigned in this deal. This will give it a boost in recognition and qualification in the world market for gas turbines.
Absolutely, and like you said, they’re elbowing out the ruSSkis and making them look like a bunch of amateurs.
