Naval Group confirmed its exit from Indian submarine Project-75I

Naval Group has stated that it has withdrew its offer from the Indian Navy’s long-delayed Project-75I initiative to acquire six diesel-electric attack submarines. The French shipbuilder warned Janes on May 23 that it would be unable to compete for the INR400 billion (USD5.15 billion) project due to conditions in the RFP document.

In July 2021, the Indian Ministry of Defence (MoD) issued the Project 75(I) RFP, which asked two Indian companies – state-owned Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders Limited (MDL) and private-sector Larsen & Toubro (L&T) – to act as “strategic partners” and collaborate with a foreign submarine manufacturer to build the submarines.
