PHL Coast Guard getting 2 94-meter patrol vessels from Japan

A computer-generated imagery of the upcoming 94-meter multi-role response vessels (MRRVs) of the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) was shown in the tour of duty video report of recently retired PCG commandant Admiral Joel S. Garcia.

The PCG is recieving 2 94-meter MRRVs from Japanese shipbuilder Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. under a JPY14,550,000,000.00 contract signed February 7, 2020.

Mitsubishi Shipbuilding said the vessels will be built at Shimonoseki Shipyard & Machinery Works for completion and delivery in 2022.

The acquisition is funded through a loan provided by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) under the Maritime Safety Capability Improvement Project (MSCIP) for the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG), Phase II.

According to Mitsubishi Shipbuilding, the 94-meter MRRVs will have a maximum speed of not less than 24 knots, and an endurance of not less than 4,000 nautical miles.

“Both vessels will be equipped with secured communication systems for Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) surveillance, helideck and a hangar for helicopter operations, an underwater remotely operated vehicle for subsurface search and survey, and high-speed rubber boats. They will contribute significantly to enhancing speed of response to maritime accidents or crimes on the high seas,” the Japanese shipbuilder said. - mintfo
