HSL issues EoI for electrical system green tugs project

Published on

Hindustan Shipyard Limited (HSL) has recently invited Expression of Interest (EoI) from suitable Indian firms, industries, SMEs with demonstrated capability and proven track record in integrating high-end system of high-power electrical equipment storage systems.

The move is intended for shortlisting as Indian Electrical System Integrator (IESI) for its e- tugs project.

It offers Indian System Integrators a unique opportunity to gain expertise in integration of e-Systems onboard high end Vessels to play a key role in making India Self-Reliant in construction of Green Vessels.

The selected IESI is expected to have a long term partnership with HSL for not only e-tug project of HSL but much broader e- Vessel program.

With the announcement and launch of ‘Green Tug Transition Program (GTTP)’ as part of the ‘Panch Karma Sankalp’ by Ministry of Ports Shipping and Waterways (MoPSW), a significant market space for green tugs and opportunities for  shipyard have been created in India.  “Panchamrit”, is India’s commitment to reach net-zero carbon emission by 2070.

The main objective is to make India a global hub for green shiping to claim India’s share in the market space created for green vessels by nurturing this green vessel technology and becoming globally competitive.

Towards realizing its green goals, HSL made a strong pitch by evolving a family of e-Tugs of capacity ranging from 40- 80 Ton Bollard Pull and showcasing them in the recently concluded Global Maritime India Summit (GMIS) at Mumbai.

With several prospective customers showing keen interest, HSL signed MoUs with Adani Harbour Services and VPA for collaboration in the area of construction of e-Tugs during the GMIS.

The invitation for EoI can be accessed at HSL website www.hslvizag.in for the details and modalities for shortlisting of firms.
