GRSE is a shipbuilding company in India under the administrative control of the MoD, primarily catering to the shipbuilding requirements of the Indian Navy and the Indian Coast Guard.  GRSE derives a significant majority of its revenue from its shipbuilding division, which has contributed 94.14%, 90.13%, 92.19% and 94.76% to GRSE’s gross revenue in fiscals 2018, 2017, 2016 and 2015 respectively. In addition to its ship and warship building capabilities, GRSE is also engaged in engine production and other engineering activities. The engineering division manufactures deck machinery items, pre-fabricated portable steel bridges and marine pumps.

In 1934, GRSE was incorporated under the Indian Companies Act, 1913, and was later acquired by the Government of India from Macneill & Barry Limited on May 19, 1960. Shortly after becoming a CPSE in 1960, GRSE built India’s first indigenous warship–the INS Ajay, in the year 1961.

Over the years, GRSE has developed capabilities for in-house design and shipbuilding and has made considerable contributions to the indigenous warship construction programme of our country. The shipbuilding product line extends its span from technologically sophisticated Frigates and Corvettes to Fast Patrol Vessels. In last five decades, GRSE has built and delivered ships ranging from small to large and advanced vessels, including frigates, anti-submarine warfare corvettes, missile corvettes, landing ship tanks, landing craft utilities, survey vessels, fleet replenishment tankers, fast patrol vessels, offshore patrol vessels, inshore patrol vessels, WJ-FAC, hover crafts and fast interceptor boats for the Indian Navy, Indian Coast Guard, MHA and governments of other countries. GRSE has built and supplied more than 750 vessels to carry men and material for the surveillance of the coast line. Over the years, the company has responded to the varied shipbuilding requirements of the Indian Defence Services and has evolved from building simpler vessels to building larger and technically advanced warships.

Presently, GRSE has 3 separate facilities for shipbuilding, all of which are located in close vicinity of each other in Kolkata, India. The ships are built at the Main Works Unit and the Rajabagan Dockyard. The third facility, the FOJ Unit is primarily used for fitting out and repair of ships. The Rajabagan Dockyard was acquired from Central Inland Water Transport Corporation Limited in the year 2006. The DEP Unit is engaged in the testing and overhauling of marine propulsion engines and assembly of semi-knocked down units of diesel engines, while the Engineering segment is engaged in the manufacturing and fabrication of portable steel bridges, deck machineries for ships and marine pumps.

Over the years, GRSE has been credited with many firsts in the Indian shipbuilding industry. For instance, it is the first Indian shipyard to integrate carbon composite superstructures with steel hulls for the construction of its third ASW Corvette for the Indian Navy, which resulted in a reduction in weight and increased stability of ships. Amongst other achievements, in 2000, GRSE became the first and the only Indian shipyard to build and subsequently deliver a fleet tanker to the Indian Navy and a hovercraft to the Indian Coast Guard. These are in addition to being the pioneer in supplying the first ever indigenous warship for Indian Navy (INS Ajay).  On September 5, 2006, GRSE was conferred the status of Schedule B & Mini Ratna-Category I Company by the Department of Public Enterprises under the Ministry of Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises, Government of India. The company has also been conferred with several awards including the Defence Minister’s Trophy, “Best Performing Shipyard Award” for 4 consecutive years (fiscal 2010-2011, 2011-2012, 2012-2013 & 2013-2014) from the Hon'ble Raksha Mantri; the Defence Minister’s Trophy “Best In-house Design Effort” on May 30, 2017 for Mauritius’ CGS Barracuda, among others.

GRSE continues to associate with several technology firms in the industry like MTU and other international/ domestic organizations for its different business segments such as diesel engines and deck machinery, which has added to its credibility in the international market.

GRSE has bagged the contract for 4 Survey Vessels (large) for Indian Navy on competitive bidding. The shipyard has also been declared successful bidders in yet another competitive bidding for 8 Anti-Submarine Warfare Shallow Water Crafts (ASW SWC) for Indian Navy.

Competitive Strengths

At GRSE, it is believed that the company benefits from its strengths listed below, which differentiates it from its competitors.

Modern Manufacturing Platform and Integrated Shipbuilding Facilities to deliver quality products

GRSE believes that the modern infrastructure facilities available at its shipyard coupled with its vast expertise, gives it a significant edge over other domestic defence shipyards. The company has been taking steps towards ensuring simplification of its process and procedures, adopting modern practices and technology, enhancing capacity, modernizing infrastructure and improving on governance.

In recent years, GRSE has undertaken major modernization of its infrastructure. In 2013, it developed a new integrated shipbuilding facility at the Main Works Unit that allowed it to use modular construction when building warships, which enabled reduction of the shipbuilding period, improved quality through the implementation of integrated construction technology, and constructed ships in line with global practices. These upgraded facilities permit production of 8 large ships and 12 medium/ small ships concurrently. In addition, a new Hull Shop, Module Shop for mega block integration, Dry Dock and Building Berth have been constructed. At Main Works Unit, advanced modular construction techniques enable the building of a greater number of large warships simultaneously, within a more truncated time period. The Main Works Unit is supported by the FOJ Unit, which is dedicated to fitting out and repair of ships. Fitting out follows the float-out of a vessel and precedes sea trials. GRSE recently inaugurated a modern pump test bed facility at its Taratala unit on June 11, 2018, for testing the pumps it manufactures.

In parallel to enhancing infrastructure, steps have also been undertaken for the improvement and up gradation of design capabilities through new technology and adoption of quality initiatives. To further increase construction capacity, the Rajabagan Dockyard is used exclusively for the construction and fitting out of small and medium ships. The Rajabagan Dockyard facilities are further being upgraded for the construction of more small and medium ships.

Further, in 2016, the modernization of the DEP unit in Ranchi was completed. The modernisation now offers a new, state-of-the-art diesel engine assembly shop that would enable carrying out overhaul and assembly of engines in a dust-and-moisture-proof environment. With commissioning of the “Modernised Diesel Engine Assembly Shop”, the DEP unit is poised to take up work on the next generation of marine diesel engines and move ahead to produce marine diesel engines under 'Make in India' initiatives.

Providing End-to-End Solutions

GRSE has a dedicated Central Design Office (“CDO”) undertaking design and research and development, which comprises of a highly skilled workforce of 100 members, a majority of whom are engineers qualified from IIT and other premier institutes. The CDO team uses various software ranging from Aveva Marine, NAPA for naval architectural design, AutoCAD for drafting work, and other software for structural analysis. The skilled and dedicated CDO team has achieved innovative measures in carrying out complex warship designs, including Landing Craft Utility Mark IV, which is an in-house design product with 15 knots speed, which is unique for a vessel of this size and type. Additionally, on June 1, 2018, GRSE inaugurated the Data Centre of CDO, and a virtual reality lab of CDO on July 7, 2018 at 61 Park Unit.

The ability to provide end-to-end solutions to customers, ranging from product conceptualization, design, system integration and project management, increases the capability of meeting customer demands. For a project proposal, all resources are utilized to develop the project from the design to the delivery stage of the finished product. This provides an increased level of awareness with respect to meeting of customers’ needs. When the same organization designs as well as delivers the ships, it allows for a greater understanding of the ship one is expected to build, and control over the manufacturing process. Having a dedicated production line to manage the entirety of the project, allows for greater efficiencies when compared to some competitors who participate in construction of ships, but do not participate in other stages of the project. Furthermore, a significant amount of reliance on third-parties to complete an order, is avoided.

Strong and Established Relationships with Indian Navy and Indian Coast Guard

GRSE has a long-standing relationships with the Indian Navy and Indian Coast Guard. In 1961, GRSE delivered the INS Ajay, the first indigenous warship, to the Indian Navy, which set rolling, an over 5 decade relationship. Since then, 98 warships have been delivered to the Indian Navy and Indian & Mauritius Coast Guard. The historical operations and ongoing operations exhibit the level of satisfaction and depth of relationship with respect to the Indian Navy and Indian Coast Guard.

GRSE is the only indigenous shipbuilding company to have achieved some historical milestones with the Indian Navy and Indian Coast Guard. For instance, in 2000, it became the first and only Indian shipyard to build and subsequently deliver a fleet tanker to the Indian Navy and a hover craft to the Indian Coast Guard. Further, in 2009, the first and only Indian shipyard was build and subsequently deliver to the Indian Navy a landing ship. In 2017, GRSE built and delivered to the Indian Navy, for the first time in the Company’s history, warships that have weapon and sensors trials completed which until then were undertaken at various Indian Navy facilities post delivery of warships. In addition, in 2017 came the INS Kiltan, an Anti-Submarine Warfare Corvette and the first Indian warship with a superstructure made entirely of composite material. Currently too, there are several ongoing projects with the Indian Navy and Indian Coast Guard.

Strong Order Book

GRSE’s aggregate order book as on July 31, 2018 was at ₹203,136.10 million. The current order book promises a large number revenue-generating projects from which the revenue earned shall allow investments in upgradation and modernization of design capabilities and facilities, for becoming more efficient and technologically sophisticated. A number of the  warships are large vessels with advanced technology, which contribute significantly to the profit margin of the company. The shipbuilding contracts stipulate the agreed specifications of the vessel and classification of classification society with which the vessel is intended to be certified. Typically, GRSE is permitted to subcontract any portion of the construction work of the vessel to subcontractors, other than few major sub-contract tasks such as the main hull structure and superstructures for which we require the prior approval of the client.

Make in India Initiative

GRSE has an advantage over global shipyards in securing contracts to build vessels for the Indian Navy and Coast Guard because it qualifies for the “Make in India” initiative under the DPP. The “Make in India” initiative grants indigenous manufacturers a competitive advantage when supplying to the domestic market. The MoD has given the highest priority to Indigenously Designed, Developed and Manufactured (“IDDM”) products for capital procurement. The Indian Navy and Indian Coast Guard, being part of the domestic market, are required to give preference to GRSE over global shipyards in specific circumstances. As part of the “Make in India” initiative, the company has put in considerable effort to increase the percentage of indigenization over the last few years. Over the last year, significant progress has been made in this regard in terms of value of production.

Business Diversification

Shipbuilding is the key product offering. However, in addition to the core manufacturing activities for shipbuilding, diversified products and services are also offered, including portable bridges, deck machinery items, pumps and engines. Bridges, which are manufactured at the 61 Park Unit and Taratala Unit, enable counterbalancing for the cyclical nature of the shipbuilding income stream. Product diversification allows the company to rely on different product areas to generate revenue when the market conditions dictate a decrease in demand for shipbuilding.

It is not known whether any other shipyard in India that has a dedicated deck machinery equipment facility or an engine assembling and testing facility, both of which are important for the shipbuilding and testing process. In the absence of such facilities, competitors approach third-parties to complete such tasks related to deck machinery, engine assembly and testing. This vertical integration at GRSE enables ships to be produced in a time efficient manner because of non-reliance on third-parties.

Experienced Workforce

A qualified and experienced senior management team and a technically skilled employee base has contributed to the growth of operations and the development of in-house processes and competencies. Human resource policies are aimed towards enhancement of institutional knowledge and skills. The human resource department continually takes initiatives to develop and upgrade the skills and knowledge of the employees.

The senior management team consists of technically qualified and experienced professionals who bring with them extensive experience in shipbuilding, design and engineering, order management, operations, human resources, finance and after-sales services. High standards of ethical integrity and transparency in all business functions are the hallmark of GRSE. Talented and motivated employees have been key to the success story of GRSE, and they will continue to capitalize on future growth opportunities.

 HISTORICAL BCAKGROUND

Since 1884 and prior to being incorporated as a limited company, GRSE was engaged in the business of operating shipbuilding and repair workshops as an unincorporated entity. The company was registered as “Garden Reach Workshops Limited” on February 26, 1934 under the Companies Act, 1913 with the Registrar of Companies, Calcutta. It changed its name to “Garden Reach Workshops Private Limited” on November 5, 1957. In the year 1960, it was acquired by the GoI and since then the share capital is wholly owned by the President of India along with its nominees from time to time. Thereafter, the company changed its name to “Garden Reach Workshops Limited” on November 30, 1961 pursuant to the acquisition of the company by the GoI. The name was again changed from “Garden Reach Workshops Limited” to “Garden Reach Shipbuilders & Engineers Limited” on December 31, 1976 pursuant to the certificate of incorporation issued by the Registrar of Companies, West Bengal. GRSE became a public company pursuant to a special resolution of the shareholders at an Annual General Meeting held on August 25, 2017.

Strategies

Looking at the future order of warship building for the Indian Navy and the Indian Coast Guard, in the next decade, existing customers alone could provide opportunities for a robust order book with full capacity utilization. In addition, there is also a focus on order prospects from foreign countries. There is a commitment to a continuous increase in market share across product verticals and diversification of the customer base and geographical footprint, thereby minimizing exposure to only particular sectors, markets and customers. Pursuant to the SEBI Exemption Letter-I, GRSE, being an organization under the administrative control of the MoD, has been exempted from disclosing its strategies since the same may compromise national interests. Given below are some generic strategies, which do not have a bearing on national security interests.

Strengthening of Relationship with Indian Navy and Indian Coast Guard

GRSE shall continue to further strengthen its strong relationship with the Indian Navy and Indian Coast Guard in order to generate revenue from their acquisition plan, which aims at significantly expanding the fleet ship size of the Indian Navy and Indian Coast Guard. Available information on the indigenous construction component of acquisition plans for the next decade indicate that the Indian Navy and Indian Coast Guard will acquire an indigenous aircraft carrier, fleet support ships, frigates, mine counter measure vessels, fast attack crafts, patrol vessels, new-generation corvettes, survey vessels and fuel barges. GRSE intends to focus on securing orders for the construction of major weapon vessel platforms (frigates and corvettes) to optimize the capacity utilization of its facilities.

Repair and Refitting of Indian Navy and Indian Coast Guard Vessels

Substantial market opportunities are anticipated in the coming decade and beyond, in the area of maintenance, repairs, refits and upgrades of the Indian Navy and Indian Coast Guard warships.  Considering that the Coast Guard is intending to augment its existing fleet by around 20-25 vessels over the next 10-15 years (Source: ICRA), there is an intention to ramp up focus on repair and refitting of the Indian Navy and Indian Coast Guard vessels. Further, the MoD in May 2017, released the “Strategic Partnership” framework for the Indian defence sector as a part of the DPP enabling multiple collaborations and partnerships between the Indian shipyards and foreign original equipment manufacturers and naval technology firms. This establishes a platform for a healthy exchange of technology and manufacturing know-how for the participants.  Such an initiative would enable domestic shipyards to eye global opportunities, leading to higher exports in the long run, offering significant opportunities in the area of maintenance, repair, refits and upgrades.

Upgradation of Technological Capabilities and Facilities

In order to maintain its relationships with the Indian Navy and Indian Coast Guard, GRSE must continually advance and improve its technological capabilities and facilities, and meet future shipbuilding requirements. From constructing ships on a shorter timeline, to producing ships with greater technological capabilities, the Indian Navy and Indian Coast Guard require constant innovation and improvements in efficiency from shipbuilders. In 2013, the foundation was laid for meeting the future requirements of the Indian Navy and Indian Coast Guard through modernization of the Main Works Unit.  This allows for modular construction which reduces costs as well as the shipbuilding period. Further, in 2016, the engine plant at Ranchi was modernised. Over the next 2 years, the capabilities of the Rajabagan Dockyard shall be augmented to enhance shipbuilding capabilities. There is also a plan to invest in research and development capabilities to meet the future requirements of the Indian Navy and Indian Coast Guard.

As a part of its strategy, GRSE continues to evolve and has developed:

  • an atmospheric-controlled dedicated facility at the Main Works Unit and at 61 Park Unit for construction of FRP boats
  • new designs for high-speed boats (25-30 meters length and speed of 25-30 knots) to meet the future requirements of MHA
  • 88 fast interceptor boats (built and delivered 58 numbers of 12 tonnes; and 30 numbers of 5 tonnes) to the MHA for coastal security.

Enhancing Research and Development Capabilities

A greater percentage of revenue capital is planned to be invested in research and development in order to augment efforts in the development and design of warships along with the development of engineering products. New hull forms of warships with sizes from 65-115 M that are capable of speeds up to 25-35 knots, are currently being developed. A pontoon is also being designed for the transport of hull blocks and for inland cargo movement on national waterways. GRSE is collaborating with leading academic institutes to develop and design such products. Additionally, on June 1, 2018, the company recently inaugurated a Data Centre of the CDO at 61 Park Unit which has a capability multiplier essential for critical information technology operations and a server, which offers safety and security of design data.  There is an emphasis on promoting a “Green Concept”, thereby contributing to energy saving. On July 7, 2018  a virtual reality lab of CDO at 61 Park Unit was inaugurated to undertake line out inspection on the CAD model, user reviews of critical departments at a much earlier stage and marketing of future ship designs.

In order to meet certain customer’s requirements, a new landing ship with a low draft (1.7 M), high payload and a max speed of almost 15 knots was especially designed. This design is the largest landing ship utility in its category and the design has been verified through model testing.

The following new concept designs have been submitted to the Indian Navy against requests:

  • New Generation Corvette
  • Survey Vessel (large)
  • Anti-Submarine Warfare-Shallow Water Craft

A design proposal has also been submitted to the Indian Coast Guard for a Pollution Control Vessel.

Aligning Processes to Changing Market Environments

There is also a plan to adjust processes in order to meet the requirements of shifting market environments. The competitive marketplace for shipbuilding is steadily moving from a nomination process to a competitive bidding process. Previously, companies were nominated for projects and were able to avoid delivering bids to customers in order to secure contracts. Now, an increasing percentage of projects are secured through a competitive bidding process. Today, the procurement process is moving to a bidding process to reduce costs for purchased component parts. One must have the ability to properly scope and build bids that allow one to maintain proper financial performance. Strategies are being developed to enable the company to compete in the bidding process for projects and the procurement of components. Other strategies will also be implemented to meet the current market environment including enhancement of inventory control, building of a strategy processes, outsourcing of non-core works and services and enhancement of quality control processes.

Pursuing New Market Opportunities

GRSE is poised to explore global markets for its products. In 2014, it exported its first ship and now seeks to substantially grow its sales from ship exports. It intends to market all its vessel sizes for export to various geographic locations. However, they anticipate exporting small and medium sized warships and patrol vessels to South East Asia, West Asia, African countries and Latin America, which would give it the opportunity to develop its export business. GRSE is poised to supply vessels of improved quality at lesser capital cost, which will enable it to compete in the global arena. In order to achieve the aforesaid strategy, it is in the process of upgrading its processes and products in line with the latest technology to keep up with the demands of modern shipbuilding.

There is also an endeavour to increase capacity for its other products, including ship repair, deck machinery, marine pumps, bridges and marine engines. A new system of bridge design has also been developed to enhance capacity for increased penetration in newer markets, strengthen existing markets, establish additional production facilities at DEP for bridges and modernize facilities for production efficiency of engines.

BUSINESS VERTICALS

GRSE offers products in the following core verticals:

(1) Shipbuilding

(2) Engineering

(3) Engine production.

The shipbuilding division is involved in the construction of vessels for clients engaged in the defence sector shipping industry. These vessels include frigates, anti-submarine warfare corvettes, missile corvettes, landing ship tanks, landing craft utility, survey vessels, fleet replenishment tankers, fast patrol vessels, offshore patrol vessels, inshore patrol vessels, WJ-FACs, hover crafts and fast interceptor boats. The engineering division develops and manufactures portable steel bridges, suspension type pre-fabricated steel bridges, marine pumps, rail-less helicopter traversing systems, boat davits, anchors, mooring and dock capstans, anchor windlass and winches.

The engine production division is the smallest division with respect to revenue. It undertakes assembly, testing, servicing and repair of various models of diesel engines used for marine propulsion and power generation through collaboration with the MTU of Germany. Through the engine division, MTU 396-04, 4000, 1163, 538, and 183 series diesel engines, engine components and accessories are produced. GRSE has recently entered into a memorandum of understanding with an engine production entity in India, for producing small to medium capacity (50-500 Kw) engines.

A vast majority of GRSE’s products are supplied to central and state governments and organizations owned and controlled by them.  A significant majority of the revenue is derived from the sale of shipbuilding products to the Indian Navy and the Indian Coast Guard.

In March 2018, GRSE entered into a MoU with an organization outside India for promulgation of its export business and cooperation on mutual interests for the supply of components, equipment and services related to Bailey type portable steel bridges. In April 2018, a MoU was signed with M/s Elbit Systems Limited, Israel, for indigenous production of unmanned surface vessels, and on May 2018, with the Ministry of Defence of another jurisdiction, to form a collaboration for a shipbuilding project.

In addition to the aforesaid shipbuilding products, a variety of boats, pontoons, barges, sailing dinghies, fishing trawlers, fire floats, tugs, dredgers, passenger ferries, motor cutters, deck whalers, launches etc. have also been supplied to various customers over the years.

Engineering

In 1970, the Engineering division was set up, primarily to indigenize sophisticated deck machinery items.  Today, the division manufacturers portable bridges, deck machinery items and marine pumps.

  • Portable Bridges

Portable bridges are designed to allow a bridge to be completely erected on rollers from one side of the gap to be bridged, and then launched across to the other side, without the use of any support within the gap. It is of particular use in providing access in far-flung areas and hilly terrain and also provides quick restoration of communication where existing road or bridge connectivity has been destroyed by natural disasters. Portable bridges also augment the road network in connecting remote locations in difficult terrains, particularly in the hilly areas e.g. for initiation of project by Independent Power Producers in Hydro sector in the north-eastern part of the country. Through this product there is an intention to enhance export potential in countries like Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Myanmar among others.

The portfolio for portable bridges includes

  • standard width (3.32 m) single lane bridge
  • extra wide (4.25 m) single lane bridge (steel deck)
  • extra wide (4.25 m) improvised single lane bridge using 10’x 7’ Panel
  • double lane bridge (steel deck) with 10’X 7’ panel
  • suspension bridge.

The portable bridges confirm to global AASHTO (American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials) standards and are supplied in hot dip galvanized condition. MoUs are in place for the supply of galvanized portable steel bridges to the Government of Odisha, Government of Chhattisgarh and for Project Himank of the Border Roads Organisation. In terms of capacity, GRSE has a market share of about 60%, having manufactured around 4,800 metric tonnes in fiscal 2017. The bridges are made to order as the configuration of the bridge varies according to the bridge span and the load carrying capacity of the bridge. The bridge, manufactured using mainly steel, is assembled on site and is therefore also known as a portable bridge.

GRSE holds patents for stiffened steel deck systems for single lane bridges and the manufacture of double lane portable steel bridges which were obtained in the year 2011 and 2007, respectively.
