“In a major boost to defence production under the ‘Make in India’ initiative and towards achieving self-reliance in the critical field of defence equipment, Goa Shipyard has placed a maiden order on Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL) for supply of an upgraded Super Rapid Gun Mount (SRGM), the main gun onboard most warships of the Indian Navy,” BHEL said in a statement.

The order envisages supply, installation and commissioning of the entire system – upgraded SRGM and accessories for Triput Class Frigates of the Indian Navy, which will be manufactured by the Haridwar unit of BHEL.

The upgraded SRGM is a state-of-the-art weapon system having additional features such as capability to manage different types of ammunition to engage fast, manoeuvring and non-manoeuvring radio-controlled targets.

The upgraded SRGM has the capability to fire advanced ammunition with higher range and programmable ammunition.

Towards this, BHEL has established dedicated, intricate manufacturing and inspection facilities at its manufacturing plants, for production, installation, commissioning and lifecycle support of various products and components.

The initiatives taken by BHEL will be a driving force towards the government’s Aatmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan.
