 AZAD Engineering Limited Secures Major Contract with GTRE for Advanced Gas Turbine Engine Manufacturing

AZAD Engineering Limited has secured a contract with GTRE to manufacture advanced gas turbine engines for defense applications, showcasing their precision engineering capabilities. This partnership underscores India's growing prowess in defense manufacturing.

AZAD Engineering Limited, a leader in precision engineering and manufacturing, has won a prestigious contract from the Gas Turbine Research Establishment (GTRE). GTRE, a key R&D organization under the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and the Ministry of Defence, has selected AZAD as the production agency for an advanced gas turbine engine critical for defense applications. The first batch of these fully integrated engines is expected to be delivered by early 2026.

The contract involves the complete manufacturing and assembly of a sophisticated gas turbine engine designed with a single-spool turbojet setup. This includes a 4-stage axial flow compressor, an annular combustor, a single-stage axial flow uncooled turbine, and a fixed exit area nozzle. The advanced propulsion system is intended for various defense applications.

AZAD's selection as the sole industry partner for GTRE highlights the company's strong engineering and manufacturing capabilities. India has a solid track record of creating top-tier engine designs using indigenous technology. However, turning these designs into engines that meet stringent mission-critical objectives remains a significant challenge. AZAD's role in this project underscores the confidence in its ability to meet these demands.

Rakesh Chopdar, Chairman and CEO of AZAD Engineering, expressed his excitement about the contract, stating, "We are honored to be selected by GTRE for this prestigious contract and are eager to bring this groundbreaking design to life at our facilities in Hyderabad. From power and aviation to defense and oil & gas, we have expanded our manufacturing capabilities to deliver end-to-end production for a fully assembled advanced turbo engine. This creates a significant opportunity for us to provide complete propulsion system solutions for both national and global defense requirements. Our commitment to excellence positions us well to enhance India's defense manufacturing capabilities and establish a strong presence in the defense manufacturing sector. These advancements will enable us to support a new era of defense applications."

AZAD Engineering Limited has established itself as a key player in the precision engineering and manufacturing industry, serving sectors such as power, aviation, defense, and oil & gas. The company's involvement in this project is expected to further strengthen India's capabilities in defense manufacturing and contribute to the nation's strategic defense objectives.
