INS Vikramaditya, India’s only aircraft carrier, is going to be fitted with a marine hydraulic system for the first time as part of its upgrade that will give an edge to the air-capable wing of the ship.
The systems would be fitted by Russia’s Rostec State Corporation through its subsidiary, Technodinamika.
The GS-1MF and GS-3 marine hydraulic systems are used for refueling, cleaning, and pressurization of hydraulic systems of aircraft and helicopters which form part of the air-capable wing of INS Vikramaditya.
GS-1MF hydraulic systems are used for helicopters while GS-3 are used for aircraft. The upgradation would take place in India only and would include installation supervision, commissioning and sea trials of the ship.
Technodinamika specializes in the development, manufacture, and after-sale servicing for systems and equipment for civil and military airplanes and helicopters.
