HAL Invites Indian Partner for Licence Manufacturing of ALH Civil

Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) has offered the indigenous Advanced Light Helicopter-Dhruv (civil version) for manufacturing to potential Indian private companies through transfer of technology (ToT). The decision is seen as a major boost to defence manufacturing and government’s ‘Make-in-India’ initiative.

The company, in this regard, has invited expression of interest (EOI) for identification of Indian partner.  “Considering the increasing need of helicopters in civil operations of the country, this will be a mega deal from HAL which is the OEM and Licensor”, said CMD HAL, T. Suvarna Raju.

Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) is the design authority and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) of ALH-Dhruv.  “The Company is now looking forward to develop a reliable Indian partner (IP) to service the potential demand to different customers in civil sector in shorter time span. The selected Indian partner would also be required to provide support to the customers throughout the life of the product (20 years) thereby ensuring long term business relationship,” the company said in a statement.

The company further said that as a technology provider, it would provide transfer of technology through license and transfer of know–how, technical assistance and license rights for production of ALH-Dhruv (Civil) for the selected business partner.

The Indian partner, according to HAL, should have five years of experience in engineering/aerospace industry (including manufacturing and assembly), have net worth of Rs 2000 crores and minimum turnover of Rs 2500 crores, possess skilled and qualified manpower, registered in India or is having majority holding by Indian stakeholders and willing to enter strategic collaboration with HAL.

Dhruv, due to its flexibility of configuration for different roles, is envisaged to have potential demands in domestic as well as foreign markets.
