Our marine pump product under our engineering division undertook the development of indigenized centrifugal pumps in order to replace Russian origin pumps. We have designed our pumps in-house, and our designs have been vetted and verified by the Society of Turbo-Machinery for SNF/ SNM class Naval Ships and EKM type submarines for the Indian Navy, which are certified by Eastern Naval Command. On completion of our indigenization process, a total of one hundred fifty-five (155) marine pumps have been supplied to Indian Navy as on July 31, 2018. Our Company has supplied various types of pumps to the Indian Navy for replacement/refurbishment of various pumps onboard Naval Ships and has so far developed and delivered ten (10) types of pumps that were taken up for indigenization and development. Different models of our pumps can be utilized for supplying different ranges of pumps by making suitable modifications on operating parameters as may be required by our customers.
All of our marine pumps are made of non-ferrous components (“NAB”), which requires special type of casting, as per NES 747, BS1400 and the casting is done through out-sourcing. Machining of all the parts of pumps are being done through in-house/ out–sourced facilities, depending upon the urgency of the order. Bought out items like motor, control panel and mechanical seals etc. are procured through out-sourcing. Assembly of pumps are undertaken in-house to cater for the present existing orders. A modern test bed is under erection at our Taratala Unit.
