L&T has undertaken complex mission-critical projects in all strategic sectors towards Nation Building. In the case of defence, L&T undertakes design and development of equipment and systems as well as platforms.
L&T is proud to have been associated with the Design Engineering and construction of India’s first nuclear powered submarine, INS Arihant, demonstrating multi-disciplinary capabilities for Engineering and construction of complex Naval platforms.
With a focus on modular design and construction, the major strengths of L&T in defence shipbuilding are:
Design of Naval ships are undertaken in-house and we have developed basic designs of Interceptor Boats, Offshore Patrol Vessels, Corvettes etc. which can be adapted to customer requirements. 3D Modelling integrated with Product Lifecycle Management and other Design and Analysis software suites enable accuracy, revision control and output aligned with yard infrastructure.
Currently, L&T is executing a project for construction of 54 Interceptor Boats for Indian Coast Guard. Designed in-house with waterjet propulsion and aluminium hull, these boats have a speed of over 45 knots and excellent manoeuvrability.
On the equipment front, the following marine systems have been developed and supplied for different classes of ships:
In addition to design, engineering and construction of warships, L&T offers lifecycle management and mid-life upgrades for warships, submarines and auxiliary vessels. The Navy & Coast Guard therefore secures total solutions from concept design to delivery and in-service maintenance support.
