SINGAPORE, -- Shipbuilder ST Marine has laid the keel for the Republic of Singapore Navy's (RSN's) second of eight Littoral Mission Vessels (LMVs).

The keel-laying for the 80 m, 1,200-tonne vessel took place on 14 May at ST Marine's shipyard in Jurong. The company is building the new vessels under a contract announced in January 2013; the ships will replace the RSN's 11 Fearless-class patrol vessels that have been in service for almost 20 years.

According to IHS Jane's Fighting Ships , the LMVs will be powered by two MTU 20V 4000 M93 engines, giving a top speed of 27 kt and a standard range of 5,000 n miles at 15 kt.
