Bengaluru: State-run HAL’s arm Naini Aerospace Ltd (NAeL) at Prayagraj (Allahabad) in Uttar Pradesh delivered aero structures and sub-assemblies for making five multi-role Advanced Light Helicopters (ALH) Dhruv here, said the defence behemoth on Friday. “The HAL’s Helicopter Division in Bengaluru received the first batch of helicopter structures and sub-assemblies manufactured by NAeL, Prayagraj, for ALH (Dhruv),” the city-based Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) said in a statement here.
The state-run aerospace major’s chairman and managing director R. Madhavan opened a structural assembly shop for production of helicopter structures at NAeL about two months ago. “With the handing over of helicopter structures, NAeL has developed capabilities in the field of aero-structures apart from aircraft loom manufacturing,” said NAeL chairman V.M. Chamola in the statement. The company, however, did not disclose to the media the unit’s capacity, set up at what cost and how many employed. (IANS)
