LIMA 2017: China and Boustead get set on LMS start line

23rd March 2017 - 08:30 GMT | by Gordon Arthur in Langkawi


More details about Malaysia's purchase of an initial batch of four Littoral Mission Ships (LMS) from China emerged at the LIMA 2017 exhibition in Langkawi.

The first two LMS vessels with a full load displacement of 710t will be constructed in China. Boustead Holdings, a subsidiary of the Boustead Naval Shipyard (BNS) is expected to hold about 60% of a joint venture with the Chinese partner, will be responsible for completing the next two.

China is expected to deliver its part of the bargain in 2019 and 2020, while Boustead should deliver its vessels in 2021.
