Established in September 2008, it has its presence felt in 2 major cities: Mumbai and New Delhi. The main purpose of Naval Group to be in India would be to support the Indigenisation through ‘Make in India’ activities for Scorpene® submarine equipment, to develop the Indian defence eco-system, as well as to develop design services in India with talented Indian engineers.

Naval Group in India has displayed continuous efforts of participating in various defence and renewable energy endeavours for the Indian Navy by empowering Indian industrial partners to cater to the requirements of the Indian shipyards and the Navy. Self-reliance, empowerment and innovation are the driving force for Naval Group in India to better serve the rich Indian coastline.

The thrust to the industrial progress of India can be clearly attributed to the one-of-a-kind initiative called Make in India. India proves to be a strong contender on account of its increasing manufacturing skills.

Strategically significant projects have seen increased participation of indigenous content through a complex process of transfer of technology. Convergence of knowledge, ideas and competence amongst a wide array of cultures introduces an interesting element in the success story of indigenisation.

The endeavour of Naval Group in India is to be a visionary and to further its involvement in empowering more and more industries by creating a robust eco-system that can cater to the varied defence needs of the country.
