  Chairman and managing director, Mazagon Dock Ltd., Vice Admiral H.S. Malhi
MDL has successfully delivered first two of the indigenous stealth frigates. The teething problems of Scorpene project have been overcome. The challenge for MDL now is to implement integrated construction of warships to reduce delays in shipbuilding programme.

MDL’s Modernisation Project is about to be completed providing MDL valuable outfitting Wet Basin capacity, 300T Goliath Crane and Modular Assembly Shop. In addition, MDL is contemplating a relook at the infrastructure and create additional facilities aimed to further improve the capacities and capabilities to meet the force level requirements of the Indian Navy, particularly for submarine building.

Two ships of P17 Class have been delivered. Last of the P17 is undergoing trials and would be delivered in early 2012. Present order book contains three ships of P15A Missile Destroyers, four ships of P15B Follow-on Destroyers and six Scorpene Submarines. All these are to be delivered within this decade.
