On December 14, 2023, ST Engineering announced that its subsidiary ST Engineering Marine Ltd had secured a contract with the Singapore Ministry of Defence for the mid-life upgrade of the Formidable-class frigates for the Republic of Singapore Navy. Naval Group, as ST Engineering sub-contractor, will be continuing the partnership the two companies have started in 2000 with the Formidable-class frigates construction program.

Through this contract signed with ST Engineering Marine Ltd, Naval Group is proud to continue its cooperation with its partner to serve the Singapore Navy.

Naval Group has a deep understanding of the Formidable-class frigates, as the Group has built the first vessel in the Formidable-class series at the Lorient shipyard in France. The other five were built locally by the ST Engineering shipyard in accordance with the major transfer of technology agreement, a testimony of the strong partnership between the two companies. To achieve this project, Naval Group will work closely with Naval Group Far East, its subsidiary in Singapore, which is already supporting the Singaporean Navy and ST Engineering in project management, maintenance, and supply chain.
