ST Engineering Marine, a Singaporean shipbuilder, has awarded GE Vernova’s power conversion business a contract to deliver Ship’s Electric Grid electric propulsion systems for the Singapore Navy’s six new multirole combat vessels over the next 10 years.

The MRCVs will replace the navy’s existing Victory-class missile corvettes, which have been operating since 1989.

ST Engineering is building the new ships under a $1.2 billion contract, with delivery expected to be completed by 2028, Naval Technology reported. The MRCVs will be deployed to support maritime security, search and rescue, and naval combat operations.

The Ship’s Electric Grid from GE Vernova is integrated with full electric propulsion equipment and is designed to generate, distribute and manage electric power.

According to the GE Power Conversion website, the product features smart automation, control and power management systems to optimize a vessel’s power network.

The company said the electric propulsion system is more energy-efficient and cost-effective to operate compared to a conventional mechanical drive configuration, which the Singapore Navy’s Victory-class fleet is using.
