Centre begins processing clearances for nuclear submarine project

The Central government has taken up processing clearances for the detailed design phase of nuclear submarine project worth Rs 1.2 lakh crore.

The plan is to build six advanced attack submarines -- to be nuclear powered but armed with conventional missiles and torpedoes are being monitored closely and the first of the boats could roll out in 10 years time.

The initial design phase for the new boats has progressed successfully and more resources will now be deployed to move to the more complex detailed design and construction which will be undertaken by the Directorate of Naval Design (Submarine Design Group) with assistance from the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO).

The timing of the critical clearances coincides with the pace of current work at the Ship Building Centre (SBC) in Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh where the Arihant class of nuclear-armed submarines are being built. Major structural work on the fourth of the class is nearing completion and the Centre will be able to take on work for the next generation of vessels as early as 2021.

The second of the Arihant class, the slightly bigger and better-armed INS Arighat, is expected to be commissioned in 2020, adding teeth to India’s nuclear deterrence. Two follow-on boats after that are likely to enter service before 2024. This will leave SBC with adequate space and resources to commence building the next generation of nuclear-attack submarines.

The plan to build six nuclear-powered attack submarines (SSNs) kicked off in 2015.
