Production of Philippine Navy’s First SSV Starts

PT PAL Indonesia Shipyard commenced the production of the first of two strategic sealift vessels (SSVs) for the Philippine Navy.

The steel-cutting ceremony was held in Surabaya, Indonesia, on January 22, 2015. This marked the start of a USD 90 million worth warship contract, which is the company’s first ever foreign order.

PT PAL expects to deliver this first vessel in 2016, while the second vessel should be delivered a year later.

The SSVs, with a length of 123 meters and a width of 21.8 meters, will be able to reach a maximum speed of 16 knots and carry a crew of 121 and 500 troops.
