About GAINS 2023
GAINS is designed to provide innovators, engineers and
designers, the opportunity to understand the shipyard's core
business interests and its established practices giving them
visibility in such areas where they may not have previous
experience. GAINS, which is to be executed as an "Open
Challenge" scheme would be open to firms/ entities/
individuals (who are Indian Citizens), with a wide scope, that
could bring about significant efficiency enhancement as well
as development of equipment/ systems which would add value to
the products being delivered by the shipyard.
Applications/ proposals are invited from interested/ eligible firms/ entities/ individuals to provide innovative technological & business solutions to address challenges in the ship design and construction sector (including equipment).
GAINS Challenge envisaged as a two stage selection process to help generate a large number of ideas from which a few promising ones may be selected and nurtured.
Stage - I:
An initiation/ familiarization phase is envisaged, post hosting of the Challenge, as some of the entities/ firms/ individuals having expertise in the thematic areas may not have exposure to the shipbuilding / maritime industry and more so with the shipyard's processes and procedures. During this phase, a detailed webinar will be hosted to provide information on GRSE's business interests, expertise and general processes and procedures. Entities/ firms/ individuals would also be encouraged to visit the shipyard for a first-hand appreciation besides brainstorming with the GAINS team, to gain clarity on the objectives and potential areas of work. Post familiarization process, interested parties would be required to submit short illustrated innovative ideas / solutions in the GRSE prescribed format (click here). This should also be accompanied by a rough order of cost, development time and justification of professional qualification/ competence of participant to successfully implement the proposal. Proposals which are implementable within a reasonable time frame and have the potential to add value to the shipyard's business interests would be considered for selection to advance to Stage - II. In case of individuals (other than firms), proof of creation of a firm/ entity is to be submitted for advancing to Stage - II.
Stage - II:
Shortlisted parties who have cleared Stage-I are required to submit Stage-II proposal (Project Report) with detailed technical description of the proposals, bringing out clearly the implementation strategy, the advantages of implementation, market potential, timelines, detailed costing and estimate of Return on Investment (ROI). The Stage-II submission will be followed by interviews/presentations by the entity/firm. GRSE thereafter decides the winner(s) who will then be invited for further negotiations and potential award of contract for implementation.
- Artificial Intelligence (AI) in shipbuilding
- Renewable/Green Energy and Energy Efficiency
- Efficiency Enhancement in Shipyard
A sum of up to a maximum of Rs 5 Lakh each, may be paid to
firms/ entities against delivery of the Detailed Project
Report (Stage-II submission) based on evaluation by GRSE.
Based on the evaluation of Stage-II submissions, winner(s) may be invited for negotiations for potential award of contract(s). In the event of the product being sold to other customers after successful development, a suitable revenue sharing model would be mutually worked out.
