GE to Power Indian Navy's Next-Gen P17A Stealth Frigate

GE’s Marine Solutions announced that its LM2500 marine gas turbines will power the Indian Navy’s P17A stealth frigate. The LM2500 gas turbines will be provided by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) Industrial and Marine Gas Turbine division, Bangalore, India under license from GE.

“We are delighted that the Indian Navy has once again chosen our reliable LM2500 gas turbines, now for this next-generation P17A frigate which is a follow-on to the Shivalik-class P17 program,” said GE’s Brien Bolsinger, Vice President, Marine Operations, Evendale, Ohio. “GE’s in-country partner HAL already has delivered 11 LM2500 gas turbines to the Indian Navy, including those that power three P17 frigates Shivalik, Satpura and Sahyadri launched in April 2003, June 2004, and May 2005, respectively.“

HAL will assemble and test the LM2500 gas turbines prior to installation; HAL is licensed by GE to do so for Indian Navy LM2500 propulsion applications. HAL also is licensed to provide service and comprehensive support including inspection, spare parts, maintenance and equipment overhauls for GE industrial and marine gas turbines.

Separately, four GE LM2500 gas turbines will power the Indian Navy’s P-71 Indigenous Aircraft Carrier that, according to an Indian Navy press release, is expected to be delivered by the end of 2018.  Vikrant will be the Indian Navy’s first indigenously built aircraft carrier; it was launched in August 2013.
