Integrated Full Electric Propulsion system ! Type 054B FFG install first.
BTW that ABB Azipod Propulsion system held a Global Manufacturing Factory in China
had tested that Pod Propeller and Electric Propulsion System in a new 2,000 ton China Coast Guard ship, so in future new class warship might used it.
Type 054B frigate
The ship's independently developed integrated electric propulsion system will have a single-axis propulsion power of 20 MW.
The 054B features a smooth and clean hull shape when compared with the 054A, with a long deck, a helicopter hangar behind the superstructure,
a higher inclined bow, and boards designed to reduce waves from
flooding the deck. The ship's horizontal profile resembles a V shape,
with a length-to-beam ratio estimated at approximately 8:1.
With the increased hull size, the 054B will have more space to
install weapons systems, with a focus on increasing anti-submarine
capabilities and survivability, and strengthening operational
efficiency. The ship's missile systems will feature long-range
supersonic C805 anti-ship missiles, and Changying-3 anti-submarine
missiles with a 60km maximum range. The ship's air defence will feature
either HHQ-16C or HHQ-16D series missiles, and a FL-3000N close-range
defence anti-missile system.
The ship will be equipped with conventional Type 81 RBU and 324mm
light anti-submarine torpedoes to protect against submarine torpedo
attack. A Ka-28 or Z-9 anti-submarine helicopter will be kept on board (Wikipedia)
