Fairbanks Morse has received a contract to deliver engines for four frigates being built for the Royal Saudi Navy, the company announced on 1 May.

The company will deliver eight FM Colt-Pielstick diesel engines under the contract, which is being carried out as part of the Saudi Naval Expansion Program II.

Two 16-cylinder FM Colt-Pielstick PA6B STC diesel engines will deliver over 12MW of propulsion power to each frigate. The frigate design is based on the US Navy's Freedom-class Littoral Combat Ship.

Delivery is scheduled for September 2020.
