Thyssenkrupp Marine Systems was awarded $152m for the modernization of INS Shishumar.

Thyssenkrupp Marine Systems was awarded $152m Medium Refit and Life Certification (MRLC) contract by Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders (MDL) for the overhaul and modernization of the Indian Navy submarine INS Shishumar.
It includes the delivery of new equipment, the maintenance of systems and components, as well as on-site technical support and logistical services in form of documentation, training and spare parts. In addition, it entails a life certification that warrants the operability of the INS Shishumar’s pressure hull for the next decade.
The refit of the INS Shishumar, which takes place at MDL’s dockyard in Mumbai, is expected to be completed by 2021.
