Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders Limited (MDL)

Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders Limited (MDL) is the leading Shipyard amongst all Defence PSU Shipyards engaged in the construction of Warships and Submarines. MDL is presently constructing Missile Destroyers, Stealth Frigates and Scorpene Submarines in order to achieve self-reliance in warship production for the Indian Navy. It also manufactures warships and submarines for the Indian Navy and offshore platforms and associated support vessels for offshore oil drilling. It also builds tankers, cargo bulk carriers, passenger ships and ferries.

The shipyards of MDL were established in the 18th century. Ownership of the yards passed through entities including the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company and the British-India Steam Navigation Company. Eventually, 'Mazagon Dock Limited' was registered as a public company in 1934. The shipyard was nationalised in 1960 and is now a Public Sector Undertaking under the Ministry of Defence.

MDL has successfully completed the augmentation of its infrastructure through Mazdock Modernization Project (MMP). In the next phase of modernization, MDL plans to expand its Shipbuilding and Submarine facilities at Alcock Yard, Outfit Assembly Shop in Alcock Yard, Extension of Track of Goliath Crane, Deepening of Ritchie Dry Dock and Construction of the Submarine Section Assembly (SSA) Workshop.

MDL has already set-up a dedicated Indigenization Department to boost the Government's "Make-In-India" initiative and to take up the task of progressively increasing the indigenization content in Warships and Submarines.MDL's commitment towards indigenization is evident from the fact that percentage of indigenization in the ships built by MDL has increased from 42% (Delhi Class) in the year 1997 to approximately 78% (Kolkata Class) in the year 2015-16.
