France Pulls Out of P-75I Project


Context:

Recently, France’s Naval Group, one of five shortlisted Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) for the Navy’s P-75 India (P-75I) project to build six conventional submarines within the country, announced it would not bid for the project. The reason, Naval Group said, was that the Request for Proposal (RFP) “requires that the fuel cell AIP be sea proven, which is not the case for us yet since the French Navy does not use such a propulsion system.”

  • AIP refers to Air-Independent Propulsion, a technology for conventional — that is, non-nuclear — submarines.
