Philippine Government to build two new patrol vessels

The Philippine Government has contracted the Australian vessel designer Incat Crowther to design a 50m multi-mission monohull patrol vessel.

Two identical vessels of this type will be built in Manilla by Josefa Slipways. The primary role of the vessels is to combat illegal fishing for the Philippine government.

With the local fishing industry losing billions of dollars to illegal fishing, these assets are expected to enhance law enforcement’s capability to patrol and protect territorial waters.

The multi-mission nature of the vessels allows them to be used for disaster relief and/or rescue operations, as well as to serve as a platform for research.

The Department of Agriculture (DA) with their operating agency, Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) will operate the vessels.

The 50-meter vessel will be powered by two (2) Mitsubishi S16R2-T2MPTK engines, coupled with a Masson MMW18000 gearboxes and fixed pitch propellers. Two (2) Yanmar 6HAL2-WHT generators will service the vessel’s electrical needs with an additional emergency generator.

One embarked 9-meter riggid hull inflatable boat (RHIB) will be deployed from a specially designed well with a transom door.
