Bharat Electronics Ltd and Pilatus Aircraft Ltd, Switzerland, have jointly launched an offset project to establish an electrical harness manufacturing capability at BEL's Bangalore Complex.

The project includes transfer of technology in the form of tooling, jigs and training of BEL’s personnel at Pilatus in Switzerland and India.

The project will enable BEL to manufacture electrical harnesses for the Pilatus global supply chain.

Pilatus Aircraft Ltd entered into a contract with the Government of India in 2012 for the supply of 75 PC-7 MkII turboprop basic trainer aircraft to the Indian Air Force.

The contract includes an integrated ground based training system, a comprehensive logistics support package and a 30 per cent offset obligation. Pilatus has taken the offset obligation as a major opportunity to expand its footprint in India.
