Turbo-power units will be installed at new multi-purpose frigates, which will soon be built at the Indian shipyard. According to the contract, the first unit should be ready in December next year, the second one in July 2023.
M7H2 units have an upgraded microprocessor control system, 58,000 horsepower and allow for the speed of 30 knots.

Recently, the Indian Navy has also signed a joint guidance document with the Royal Australian Navy to enhance the cooperation between the two forces.
