Indian Coast Guard partners with Jindal Steel & Power to boost indigenous shipbuilding with marine grade steel

New Delhi: The Indian Coast Guard (ICG) and Jindal Steel & Power (JSP) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Tuesday in New Delhi for the supply of indigenous marine-grade steel to enhance the indigenous content in shipbuilding.

Through this partnership, both entities have committed to foster indigenisation, and enhance capabilities to produce and use these items in the nation’s interest, the Ministry of Defence said in a press release on Wednesday.

“The MoU underscores the importance of public-private partnerships in addressing complex security challenges, emphasising the need for collaboration between government agencies and the private sector,” the ministry said.

Several key benefits including quality, grades and dimensions along with the designated steel plants to manufacture the product are stipulated in the MoU as an assurance to the shipbuilding yards for a timely supply of marine-grade steel for the ICG.

The MoU was signed by Deputy Director General (Materiel & Maintenance), ICG IG HK Sharma and Chief Marketing Officer, JSP Shri SK Pradhan in the presence of senior officers of the ICG, according to the release.
