Mumbai : Larsen & Toubro has played an important role in building India’s first nuclear powered submarine, launched on July 26, 2009. L&T has had the privilege of making the single largest contribution in the construction of this vessel - right from the stage of plate cutting to launch.

Based on the design provided by the Navy & DRDO, L&T’s dedicated Submarine Design Centre carried out detailed engineering, using the latest 3D Modeling and Product Data Management software.

"Over the last four decades, L&T has played a crucial pioneering role in building India’s strategic sectors by successfully executing several technology-intensive and challenging projects. Building the first nuclear submarine is the latest milestone in our association with the Indian Navy & the DRDO, and we look forward to building more submarines and warships," said A.M. Naik, Chairman & Managing Director of L&T.

In addition to being the country’s first nuclear-powered indigenous submarine, this is also the largest and heaviest vessel ever built in India.

"We feel very proud to have contributed significantly to realizing India’s dream of an indigenous nuclear submarine. Over the last four decades," he added.
