  • INS Kiltan, an Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) Corvette indigenously built by Garden Reach Shipbuilders & Engineers Ltd, Kolkata was commissioned by Hon’ble Raksha Mantri Smt. Nirmala Sitharaman, at Visakhapatnam today, 16 Oct 17 in the presence of Rear Admiral VK Saxena (Retd), Chairman & Managing Director, GRSE.

    Chief of Naval Staff, Admiral Sunil Lanba, PVSM, AVSM, ADC, Flag Officer Commanding in Chief, Eastern Naval Command, Vice Admiral HCS Bisht, PVSM, AVSM, ADC, Controller of Warship Production & Acquisition, Vice Admiral DM Deshpande, AVSM, VSM and other senior officials of the Indian Navy were present during the ceremony.
    GRSE is the only shipyard in the country at this juncture which will be delivering 14 warships to the Indian Navy & Indian Coast Guard in next 02 years. 06 in this financial year and 08 in next year.

    “INS Kiltan”, is the third of the four Anti-Submarine Warfare Corvettes that GRSE is building for the Indian Navy. “INS Kiltan’ is an extremely versatile ASW platform, 109 meter long, 12.8 meter wide and a deep displacement of approx. 3250 tons. The ship’s main role is to protect nation’s maritime interests against possible submarine attack. She is a potent platform for neutralising the enemy submarines using her weapons like torpedoes, rocket launchers and helicopter.

    The ship has got excellent stealth features that make her almost invisible to the enemy, both above and below the sea surface. An extremely low radiated underwater noise signature makes her difficult to be detected by sonar, whilst the ‘x’ form of the hull and superstructure gives the ship a low radar cross section. The ship is equipped with total atmospheric control ventilation system making her fully capable to fight in nuclear, biological and chemical warfare environments.

    The commissioning of INS Kiltan is a great testimony to GRSE’s capability to design and construct frontline warships for Indian Navy.The basic design for these ships was developed by Directorate of Naval Design of Indian Navy and the detailed design was made by the Central Design Department of GRSE, Kolkata. The first two ships of the series INS Kamorta and INS Kadmatt were commissioned in 2014 & 2016 respectively. Both the ships are now an integral part of the Eastern Fleet of the Indian Navy.

    Kiltan has the unique feature of superstructure made of carbon fibre composite material. It is for the first time in the country that such a composite material has been integrated with steel hull of a ship and GRSE is the first shipyard in the country to have successfully achieved this feat. Use of this special material in superstructure has helped in reducing the overall weight of the ship resulting in greater stability of the platform.

    Completion of this ship marks a significant stride made by the Indian industry in indigenisation of several high-technology state-of-the-art equipment/ weapons/ sensors which have been fitted to fortify these ASW Corvettes. It was only by the painstaking efforts put in by L&T which resulted in the successful developments of indigenous rocket launcher (IRL) and foldable hangar door. The contribution of M/s BEL in development of indigenous surveillance radar and ASW fire control system is commendable. The hull of the ship is built with special grade high-tensile steel, developed by DRDO and Indian Navy, and produced by M/s SAIL. These are the first major warships built in the country with special grade steel DMR 249A produced in India. Railess Helo Traversing system manufactured by the Engineering Division of GRSE, under Transfer of

    Technology from M/s Mac Taggart Scott, UK, has been installed on these ships. Trainable chaff system developed by MTPF, Ambernath and indigenous guns manufactured by M/s BHEL Haridwar and Gun & Shell Factory, Cossipore are testimony to laudable efforts made by PSUs & Ordnance Factories towards indigenisation and self-reliance.

    The weapon suite of the ship is formidable and is capable of engaging ships, aircrafts and shore targets besides having astounding ASW capability. This weapon intensive ASW Corvette has the distinction of being fitted with a very large number of indigenous weapons & sensors. The Indian industry, DPSUs, Ordnance Factories have played a vital role in manufacturing & supply of various weapons, sensors & equipment. Kiltan has also completed sea trials of a number of weapons & sensors prior to delivery of the ship.

  • INS Kadmatt, an Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) Corvette indigenously built by Garden Reach Shipbuilders & Engineers Ltd, Kolkata was commissioned by Admiral Robin K Dhowan, PVSM, AVSM, YSM, ADC, Chief of the Naval Staff, at Visakhapatnam today, 07 Jan 16 in the presence of Rear Admiral AK Verma (Retd), Chairman & Managing Director, GRSE.
     
    Vice Admiral Satish Soni, Flag Officer Commanding-in-Chief, Eastern Naval Command, Vice Admiral GS Pabby, CWP&A and other senior officials of the Indian Navy were present during the ceremony.
     
    “INS Kadmatt”, is the second of the four Anti-Submarine Warfare Corvettes that GRSE is building for the Indian Navy. “INS Kadmatt’ is an extremely versatile ASW platform, 109 meter long, 12.8 meter wide and a deep displacement of approx 3300 tons. The ship’s main role is to protect nation’s maritime interests against possible submarine attack and she is a potent platform for neutralising the enemy submarines using her weapons like torpedoes, rocket launchers and helicopter.
     
    The ship has got excellent stealth features that make her almost invisible to the enemy, both above and below the sea surface. An extremely low radiated underwater noise signature makes her difficult to be detected by sonar, whilst the ‘x’ form of the hull and superstructure gives the ship a low radar cross section. The ship is equipped with total atmospheric control ventilation system making her fully capable to fight in nuclear, biological and chemical warfare environments.
     
    The commissioning of INS Kadmatt is a great testimony to GRSE’s capability to design and construct frontline warships for Indian Navy. The basic design for these ships was developed by Indian Navy’s Directorate of Naval Design and the detailed design was made by the in-house design department of GRSE, Kolkata. The ship has got an impressive indigenous content of almost 90%. INS Kamorta, the first ship of the series, was commissioned in Aug 2014 and is now an integral part of the Eastern Fleet of the Indian Navy.
