GE, Tata Sons in major tie-up

Vishwas News

Hyderabad, Feb 13:Telangana has identified aerospace as one of the key industrial sectors in its industrial policy. The State is seeing the results of its efforts of 'ease of doing business' for industries in the form of surge in investments, both individually and through joint ventures.
GE and Tata Advanced Systems Limited (TASL), which have announced their plans last December to jointly set up a manufacturing facility in Adibatla to make aero-engine components, on Monday took a leap by ground-breaking the unit with an aim to roll out the first engine by end of the year.
Centre of Excellence (COE) that will focus on manufacturing aero-engine components will incorporate latest technologies from GE and best manufacturing practices to deliver complex high precision components to the world's fastest-selling jet engine, the CFM LEAP engine. The joint venture will carry out manufacturing, assembling, integration and testing of aircraft components meeting the needs of GE's global supply chain.
It will also set up an aero-engine precision machining training facility in Telangana, to train the workforce in high-end manufacturing. For the skilling purpose, the course content has already been prepared and the exercise will be implemented soon.
TS' edge
KT Rama Rao, Minister for Industries, Telangana, who took part in the ground-breaking ceremony of the facility, said, "TASL had been an anchor manufacturer at the Adibatla Aerospace Park. GE has joined a list of marquee companies that have chosen Hyderabad for their operations through this joint venture. GE and Tata Group are keen to tap India's potential in the aerospace manufacturing segment. Telangana has created a strong ecosystem for aerospace manufacturing and has already created two aerospace parks to enable its growth further. The State also has five airstrips and is focusing on strengthening its infrastructure supported by its efforts for skilling so that there is adequate manpower available for the industry." "Telangana government has tied up with Aerocampus Aquitaine and Cranfield University for skilling for this sector. This will ensure both skilling and upskilling," he informed.
Tata group's partnership with GE will boost the domestic manufacturing expertise, and enhance the capabilities of the group in the global aerospace industry. This investment will create highly skilled jobs and develop a high-end supply chain that will offer a globally competitive manufacturing ecosystem in India," said Banmali Agrawala, president, Infrastructure and Defence & Aerospace, Tata Sons.
Agrawala said, "Working and living environment is key for people. And a suitable environment is available in Hyderabad and Telangana. The aero-engine component making is just a beginning of wide offerings the new facility can make in future. GE could have chosen any other location for this facility globally, but choosing Hyderabad and India prove what potential they have to host such a unit."
