GRSE signs Contract for Ten 30mm Naval Surface Guns

Garden Reach Shipbuilders and Engineers (GRSE) Ltd., a Mini Ratna Category 1 Defence PSU and a leading warship-building company of India has been awarded the contract for supply of Ten 30 mm Naval Surface Guns by the Ministry of Defence (MoD)/Indian Navy. The contract worth Rs. 248.5 Crore for supply of these guns to the Indian Navy was signed by Cmde Vivek Dahiya Cmde (SR), Indian Navy and Cdr Shantanu Bose (IN, Retd), Director Shipbuilding GRSE. This order marks a new chapter in the country’s efforts for manufacturing critical weapons indigenously and a hallmark of GRSE’s commitment to supporting the Indian Maritime forces.

The MoD has designated GRSE as the nodal agency for the indigenisation of Close in Weapons Systems (CIWS) guns for Naval applications in Mar 2022. Under this mandate, GRSE has achieved this breakthrough in indigenizing the 30 mm Naval Surface Gun (NSG) a vital equipment to be indigenized under the CIWS. The 30 mm NSG is a key weapon system fitted on small Warships and Auxiliary vessels of the Indian Navy and Indian Coast Guard.

GRSE remains committed to supporting the GoI’s modernization efforts and ‘Make in India’ initiative. The shipyard continues to pursue indigenisation opportunities and leverage its extensive capabilities in shipbuilding, engineering and defence technology to support the nation’s maritime and land forces.
