James Fisher Seals $273 M Submarine Rescue Deal in India

James Fisher Defence, part of James Fisher and Sons (JFS), has been awarded a £193 million ($273 million )contract by the Indian Navy for the long-term provision of its submarine escape and rescue capability.

The contract entails the design and production of two complete submarine rescue systems for £83m by December 2018 and will be assembled and produced at JFD’s Inchinnan facility, near Glasgow, UK.

In addition, a 25 year in-service support contract covering all aspects of the operation and maintenance of the system will start when the vessels are put into service in India.

Two complete submarine rescue systems will be delivered to the Indian Navy including Deep Search and Rescue Vehicles (DSRV), Launch and Recovery Systems (LARS) equipment, Transfer Under Pressure (TUP) systems and all logistics and support equipment required to operate the service.

Nick Henry, chief executive officer of JFS, said: “As the global leader in submarine rescue services, James Fisher has been awarded the contract by demonstrating, through its work with the Royal Navy, the Australian Navy and the Singapore Navy, a commitment to the safety of the global submarine community over many years. We look forward to working with the Indian Navy at the start of this long term relationship.”
