DESPITE being the sole contender for a contract to upgrade a Philippine Navy corvette, Keppel Philippines Marine (KPM) failed to clinch the deal because of a minor - but fatal - discrepancy in its bid documents.

The Philippine Department of National Defence announced recently that it had declared KPM's bid for the 216 million peso (S$6.1 million) upgrade of the BRP Artemio Ricarte as ineligible.

KPM is the Philippine subsidiary of Keppel Offshore & Marine Group of Singapore and is engaged in shipbuilding and repair.
