Tognum Receives Indian Coast Guard Contract

Press Release
Tuesday, April 19, 2011

Tognum received a substantial follow-up order for the delivery of MTU engines and automation systems for 20 new vessels of the Indian Coast Guard. The value of the contract, which has been signed by the Tognum subsidiary MTU Asia, is in the medium two-digit million euro range. The delivery of the total of 60 engines will be between 2011 and 2014. In 2009, Tognum has already signed two deals for engines and automation systems for the Indian Coast Guard with a total value of 32.5 million euro.
“MTU has already sold more than 190 type 16V 4000 M90 engines to the Indian Coast Guard and Navy in recent years. They are highly valued for their proven reliability, outstanding power-to-weight ratio and also the well-established MTU service network in India,” says Peter Kneipp, member of the executive board of Tognum and responsible for the business unit Engines.
The Series 4000 engines produced in Friedrichshafen will be supplied to the Cochin Shipyard Ltd. in the southern-Indian city of Kochi. The 20 new inshore fast patrol vessels are to be powered by triple type 16V 4000 M90 engines with an output of 2,720 kW (3,648 bhp) each. In combination with waterjet drives, they will propel the vessel at speeds up to 35 knots (65 km/h). The systems to be supplied for the 48-meter patrol vessels include the MTU “Callosum” ship automation system with an integrated solution for monitoring all ship’s services that also incorporates fire detection and extinguishing systems. The reliable, easy-to-maintain and low fuel consumption engines enable the patrol vessels to remain at sea for a prolong period of time without having to return to base to replenish supplies.
The construction of the new ships is part of an expansion of the Indian Coast Guard. The varied duties of the Indian Coast Guard are fishery protection, combating smuggling and terrorism, prevention of illegal immigration, search and rescue operations as well as marine environment protection.
