Rolls-Royce Eyes Combat Engine Co-Development with India

Our Bureau - : Oct 19, 2022 - : 12:15 am

Rolls-Royce has reiterated its commitment to support India’s vision of self-reliance in defence, through collaboration opportunities to co-design, co-develop and co-produce fighter jet engines in the country. Kishore Jayaraman, President, India & South Asia, Rolls-Royce, said, “As India takes steps to realise its vision of ‘self-reliance’ in defence, we believe we are well positioned to help leapfrog this journey through meaningful partnerships for co-creation of engine technologies. True self-reliance will come when such a partnership not only results in Intellectual Property (IP) ownership in India, but shared creation of capabilities in-country to indigenize defence technology in the future.”

Rolls-Royce has a long legacy of successful partnerships in India and has pioneered several initiatives that have contributed to the development of the aerospace and defence ecosystem in India as it is today. Engine development in the country will lead to further strengthening and growth of this ecosystem, and also propel defence exports.

Alex Zino, Director – Business Development & Future Programmes, Rolls-Royce, said, “The UK is a natural ally for India, and it is heartening that the two countries have pledged greater cooperation in defence. India can leverage the combined strength of its own scientific talent and resources along with the UK’s technology experience to accelerate its combat engine development program. We, at Rolls-Royce, are committed to support such a partnership. Our rich history of engine technology development for both civil and defence engines, particularly in the gas turbine-based aero-engine segment, makes us a partner of choice to collaborate and co-develop defence technology in India.”

Rolls-Royce has a robust ecosystem of Indian partners, engineering talent, supply chain, digital, service delivery and manufacturing capabilities, making it a natural partner of choice for engine development.
