  • HAL-Rolls-Royce

    Bangalore A joint venture of the state-run Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) and Rolls-Royce of Britain, International Aerospace Manufacturing Ltd (IAML) unveiled its production facility here Friday.

    Set up with an investment of Rs.135 crore ($25 million), the 50:50 venture will produce components for the Trent family of aero engines and compressor parts for marine and energy gas turbines.

    "The production facility incorporates the latest manufacturing techniques of Rolls-Royce and has created jobs for about 100 Indian engineers," HAL managing director K. Naresh Babu said on the occasion.

    The state-of-the-art facility is equipped with modern machine tools, computerised maintenance management systems, metal spray booths and non-destructive testing lines.

    "The venture will help in indigenising production of aero engines and developing a robust supply chain management system to nurture 225 small and medium enterprises as vendors," HAL chairman R.K. Tyagi said.

    The facility will commence production of aero-engine components and 130 different compressor parts for gas turbines later this year.

    "The venture is a testimony to our five decades old partnership with HAL and our commitment to develop the Indian aerospace industry," Rolls-Royce India president Kishore Jayaraman said.

    As India's defence behemoth, HAL began producing the Orpheus engine under licence from Rolls-Royce in the sixties and maintain its Gnome engines and the 501K industrial gas turbines subsequently.

    "We have also produced Rolls-Royce Adour 804/811 engines under licence for the British-made Jaguar aircraft of the Indian Air Force (IAF) since the early eighties," Babu recalled.

    HAL is currently manufacturing the Adour MK 871 for the Hawks being used for the advance jet training of IAF pilots.
