Successful commissioning

BMT is pleased to announce the successful commissioning of its latest hybrid vessel for the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA). 

Developed in collaboration with Penguin Shipyard International, the advanced hybrid-electric aluminium catamaran, christened “MPA Guardian”, is a 35 metre patrol boat designed to conduct patrolling activities, search and rescue, oil spill response, drone operations and salvage support. It will also be used as the government’s test bed for new technologies and equipment. 

With accommodation for up to 24 survivors and a state-of-the-art wheelhouse designed specifically to suit MPA’s operational requirements, the vessel will be deployed in a command-and-control role during multi-vessel operations, and as first responder in a wide variety of missions. 

The vessel propulsion system is an advanced hybrid-electric system based on a combination of electric and diesel mechanical propulsion. To best fulfil its operating duty the vessel can operate in different mode. In full-electric, zero-emission mode, MPA Guardian can cruise silently at 6 knots for up to three hours.

Visit BMT at Stand F47 at Seawork 21-23 June 2022.
