Bharat Electronics Ltd’s New Composites Manufacturing Facility in Navi Mumbai

August 19 2019

Shripad Naik, Minister of State (Independent Charge) for AYUSH and Minister of State for Defence, inaugurated Bharat Electronics Ltd’s (BEL) new manufacturing facility for composite materials, environmental testing and finishing in Navi Mumbai. “The new facility is expected to turnaround the fortunes of BEL’s Navi Mumbai unit, which has traditionally been in the business of manufacturing shelters and masts and overhauling of hydraulic systems of T-72 tanks,” said a BEL statement, adding that it would boost the unit’s manufacturing and testing capabilities in composites, a new area which has been identified by BEL for diversification.

“The facility will enable BEL to develop composites which are lighter yet stronger and pose no environmental hazard,” said Mr. Naik. He added that new products would cater to the requirements of ship builders. Mr. Naik assured all help to BEL, which had taken an innovative step by foraying into the area of composites.

The unit will use the facility to carry out in-house designing and manufacturing of components using GFRP (Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer) and CFRP (Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer) composites for various naval applications, submarines, aircraft and shelters, said the statement.
