In a significant move towards enhancing naval capabilities, the governments of India and the United Kingdom are in discussions to develop an electric propulsion system for Indian warships. This initiative marks a pivotal moment in India’s quest for technological advancement in maritime warfare.

Presently, Indian warships rely on traditional propulsion systems such as diesel engines, gas turbines, or steam turbines. However, the potential introduction of electric propulsion represents a paradigm shift in naval engineering. Electric propulsion systems offer numerous advantages, including increased efficiency, reduced emissions, quieter operation, and enhanced manoeuvrability.

The focus of this collaboration is to develop electric propulsion capabilities tailored for larger warships with a displacement exceeding 6,000 tonnes. Such vessels play a crucial role in projecting naval power and securing maritime interests in the region and beyond. By incorporating electric propulsion, these warships can achieve greater operational flexibility and endurance, thereby strengthening India’s naval presence.

According to officials familiar with the matter, the UK government has formally expressed its intent to collaborate with India on this ambitious endeavour. The proposal entails a government-to-government agreement aimed at facilitating the transfer of technology and expertise to establish indigenous electric propulsion capabilities in India.

The decision to pursue electric propulsion aligns with India’s broader strategic objectives of modernizing its armed forces and fostering indigenous defence manufacturing. By harnessing cutting-edge technologies in partnership with a reputed maritime power like the UK, India aims to bolster its naval prowess and maintain a competitive edge in the evolving geopolitical landscape.
