Indian Navy Launches INS Vikrant

  • LM2500s to Power CountryaEUR(tm)s First Indigenous Aircraft Carrier
  • Gas Turbine Modules Produced by HAL in India

GE Marine announces that four GE LM2500 gas turbines will soon power the Indian Navy’s INS Vikrant, providing 80 megawatts for the country’s first indigenous aircraft carrier.

Similar to the INS Vikrant itself, the ship’s propulsion plant -- four LM2500 gas turbine modules -- were manufactured in India by Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd.’s (HAL) Industrial & Marine Gas Turbine (IMGT) Division. Through its license with GE, HAL assembled, inspected and tested the LM2500 gas turbines and module enclosures for INS Vikrant. The IMGT Division’s Bangalore facility provides comprehensive support including inspection, spare parts, maintenance, equipment overhauls and assembly for industrial and marine gas turbines under license.

GE LM2500 gas turbine modules assembled and tested by HAL also power the Indian Navy’s INS Satpura, INS Sahyadri and INS Shivalik stealth frigates. To date, GE has delivered 10 gas turbine module kits to HAL for the Indian Navy.

According to the Indian Navy, the LM2500 gas turbines were installed prior to the ship's launch on August 12, 2013. The aircraft carrier will undergo extensive trials before being handed over to the Indian Navy in late 2016/early 2017.
