The Zorya-Mashproekt plant fell under the bombing and received serious damage as a result of the fresh attack by the Russian forces. Zorya-Mashproekt plant is where gas turbine engines for ships are manufactured and India was supposed to get two gas turbine engines (GTA) M7N.2 later this year and two more in 2023 to power new multi-purpose Talwar class frigates that are at advanced stages of production in India which likely will be delayed.
Earlier this year Zorya-Mashproekt supplied M7N.2 gas turbine engines to India that were later handed over to Russia for installation on Admiral Grigorovich-type frigates. idrw.org has been informed that the launch and induction of INS Tushil and INS Tamala first two lead ships that are currently going through assembly and fittings at Yantar Shipyard in Russia will be ready in the latter part of 2022 and 2023 but two warships under manufacturing at Goa Shipyard might be delayed.
Indian Navy has formed a team to assess the situation regarding the disturbed supply chain for nearly 150 warships that are powered by the gas turbine engines supplied by the Zorya-Mashproekt. A team will be sent to Ukraine after the war is over but Indian state-owned company Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) was supposed to take up localizing the production of Ukrainian gas turbine engine components for ships have been told to start work on it immediately.
