JFD Finalizes Submarine Rescue System for Indian Navy

Following  deep search and rescue vehicle (DSRV) trials, JFD said it has completed the build of the first of its two new submarine rescue systems, due to be delivered to the Indian Navy in March 2018.

The completion of the build will be commemorated by a ceremony hosted by JFD and attended by senior representatives from the Indian Navy, due to take place at JFD’s Renfrew manufacturing facility on February 23, 2018.

JFD said that the ceremony will mark a world-first in the final integration of a complete submarine rescue system within a single manufacturing facility, enabling engineers to test in-situ how each component part will integrate in order to deliver the optimum submarine rescue capability.

Under the £193 million contract, JFD is providing two complete fly-away submarine rescue systems to the Indian Navy, including deep search and rescue vehicles (DSRV), launch and recovery systems (LARS) equipment from Caley Ocean Systems, transfer under pressure (TUP) systems, and all logistics and support equipment required to operate the service.

The equipment will be designed, manufactured, integrated and tested by JFD prior to shipping in March 2018 for final commissioning and trials. The full, certified systems are due to delivered to the Indian Navy in June 2018, JFD noted.
