Innovative Designs from Singapore


Singapore Technologies Marine (ST Marine) displayed ship models of ST Marine's latest innovative designs incorporating stealth capabilities at IMDEX Asia, which was held recently at the Singapore Expo. The two displays were of an 81m Offshore Patrol Vessel and 27m Fast Craft which have been designed to cater to the demands of the modern navy. Both vessels have been extensively model tested to derive optimal hull designs in order to provide the best speed performance and sea-keeping capabilities.

The 81m Offshore Patrol Vessel (OPV) is designed as a multi-purpose platform to meet the varying needs of navies and coastguards. The vessel is capable of sustained operation up to sea state 5 and is capable of speeds ranging from 23 to 30 knots depending on the propulsion configuration. Its design includes a platform for landing and take-off operations for a range of helicopters up to 10 tonnes. The vessel is also fitted with self-defence capabilities for enhanced survivability. Vital areas of the ship such as the major shipboard, navigation, communication and combat systems may also be hardened to withstand a certain degree of shock due to underwater explosions. Mechanical and electrical systems are arranged such that there is sufficient redundancy. The OPV is designed with a high degree of automation for low manning, including ship control, monitoring and management system (SCMMS). The design also allows for unmanned engine room operations.

The 27m Fast Craft has a Vee-hull derived to provide optimal performance as a high-speed interceptor even in prolonged operation in rough sea conditions. The hull and superstructure of the 27m Fast Craft are constructed of a combination of marine grade aluminium plates, profiles and extruded panels. The structural arrangement features an innovative use of the extruded profiles on the exposed decks to provide a higher degree of flatness to achieve low “radar signature”. Depending on the selection of different propulsion specifications, the 27m Fast Craft is capable of speeds in excess of 35 knots. Its basic configuration is two units of high-speed diesel engines and two waterjets.
