Description: The Air Defence Ship (ADS) is a new aircraft carrier to be built by Cochin Shipyard for the Indian Navy. The new ship will benefit from close cooperation with renowned European shipbuilders such as Fincantieri or DCN. The ship is scheduled to be commissioned by the Indian Navy in the 2009-2012 timeframe. The ADS will be equipped with Mig-29K fighter aircraft, Naval LCA/Tejas, Ka-31 early warning helicopters, Sea Kings?, Sea Harriers?, etc. The propulsion system will consist of four General Electric LM 2500 gas turbines following the Cavour, ex-Andrea Doria, aircraft carrier configuration.
On 30 July 2004, Fincantieri Shipyard of Italy and Cochin Shipyard of India announced that Fincantieri will participate in the design and construction of the ADS aircraft carrier. Fincantieri will be responsible for propulsion system integration and will provide assessment of ship's design. In addition, it will provide assistance during the engines installation, tests of integration, and sea trials. Two contracts covering two years each (2004-2006 and 2006-2008) were signed by Cochin and Fincantieri.
