Thanks Adroth.

Can this thread be moved also to the modernization threads just like other PCG projects/ requirements?

After reviewing my own post, I realize that the news update below is properly for this PP&CGCDP thread.  What is intriguing is the that the last NEDA update (Feb 2017), has this program still under "To be implemented" status -- with the funding (loan by France) still under process.  There was no public releases regarding updates on the program.


So after all the previous ambivalence and uncertainty on the news of the Ocea 24-meter boats and OPV, does this mean that the French GMA-RORO loan re-alignment really pushed thru?

Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade visited the shipyard of French boat manufacturer OCEA in Sables d’Olonne on Saturday to inspect the French patrol boats (FPV 72 MKII).

The boats are part of the contract signed between the Department of Transportation and OCEA on Sept. 9, 2014 to modernize the Coast Guard’s fleet.

Aside from the four fast patrol boats, the contract also includes a brand new 82-meter offshore patrol vessel (OPV 270 MKII), a five-year preventive maintenance for all five boats, spare parts and technical assistance and training for the crew.

It's now out. Contract updated to include another OPV270, for a total of two.

"Balilo said the PCG is optimistic that they would have better response time once their four big ships ­– two units 92-meter Coast Guard Cutter-type ships from France and two units 84-meter ships from Japan – arrive in the country in 2019 and in 2020, respectively. "

PCG acquires French sea vessels for maritime security

By Aerol John Pateña
September 7, 2017, 11:29 am

MANILA -- The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) has inked a deal Wednesday afternoon with a French shipbuilding firm for the acquisition of five shipping vessels for maritime security.

The contract effectiveness agreement was signed by Department of Transportation (DOTr) Undersecretary for Maritime Felipe Judan and OCEA director of maritime safety and security Fabrice Weinbach and witnessed by Secretary Arthur Tugade and French Embassy representative Laurent Estrade.

The signing paved the way for the implementation of the Philippine Ports and Coast Guard Capability Development Project. It also marks the first major vessel acquisition for the PCG under the Duterte administration.

The project involves the supply, delivery and maintenance of four brand new 24 meter fast patrol boats (FPB) and one 84 meter offshore patrol vessels (OPV) to be purchased by the DOTr for the use of the Coast Guard.

“The acquisition of the vessels will enhance the capability of the PCG in performing its functions on maritime security, safety, maritime search and rescue, marine environmental protection as well as offshore patrol of the country’s exclusive economic zone,” DOTr Assistant Secretary for Maritime Lino Dabi said in an interview with the Philippine News Agency.

He said the sea vessels may be deployed to deter piracy incidents in southern Mindanao and defend the country’s territorial claims over the West Philippine Sea.

The French government has provided a loan worth 97.03 million euros through Official Development Assistance (ODA) using the remaining balance of the Greater Maritime Access (GMA) RoRo Port Projects of the Arroyo administration.

Under the agreement, supply of goods shall be made within 23 consecutive months with its first delivery to be made on the first quarter of 2018. This will involve the provision of four FPB 72 and 1 OPV 270.
The contract for the purchase of the sea vessels was signed on September 9, 2014 with OCEA and the then DOTC.
With the signing of the contract effectiveness agreement, this means that certain conditions precedent for the coming into full force and effect of the contract has already been completed. (PNA)

Good to see this finally moving towards conclusion.  After all the ambivalence and urong-sulong, there is now a solid timeline on the delivery -- Q1 2018 that is.

Either its a typo or a true spec upgrade -- but anyone would notice that it's posted as '84-meter' rather than the previous 82-meter OPV.

ETA --
However -- from this previous article of the Ocea OPV270 MkII, the '270' is not really as literal feet-to-meter conversion.  But rather, it really has this specs :

as translated by Google

... the OPV 270 is 83.6 meters long and 15.4 meters wide. Trimmed for long-range offshore missions, with a range of 45 days, it can cross 8000 miles at 15 knots. The maximum speed varies from 20 to 25 knots depending on the propulsion.

Four 24 meter fast patrol boats -- the first due in 8 months, with the remainder arriving at 45 day intervals.
Five years of preventative maintenance
Spare parts for five years

When Will the Philippines Get Its New French Vessels?

A closer look at a deal that is set to be realized soon.
By Prashanth Parameswaran
September 13, 2017

On September 6, the Philippines and France signed an agreement that would facilitate the acquisition of five vessels for the Philippine Coast Guard. The inking of the pact illustrates Manila’s continuing efforts to strengthen partnerships with countries such as France as it looks to boost its capabilities to address manifold challenges in the maritime realm.

As I have noted before, the Philippines and France have a longstanding relationship that has been deepening in the defense realm in recent years. Indeed, last May, both sides inked a new defense agreement that they had been negotiating for years. The agreement set out an overall framework for developing security ties, including not just visits and dialogues but also training, capacity-building, and collaboration on defense equipment, logistics, and the defense industry (See: “Philippines, France Ink New Defense Pact”).

One of the tangible manifestations of this defense relationship that has been discussed for years — dating back to the administration of former President Benigno Aquino III — has been the delivery of vessels from France to the Philippines under the Philippine Ports and Coast Guard Capability Development Project. The Philippines, which remains one of the weakest militaries in the region, has been looking to accelerate the pace of its military modernization to address a range of challenges, including the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) (See: “Assessing Malaysia’s Coast Guard in ASEAN Perspective”).

This particular project, which was formalized with a contract signing between the Department of Transportation and French shipbuilder OCEA in September 2014, was expected to see the Philippines receive five vessels – one 82-meter Offshore Patrol Vessel (OPV) and four 24-meter Fast Control Boats (FPB). It also includes five-year preventive maintenance, spare parts for five years, and technical assistance and training for the crew.

The project has continued to move along under new Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, who took office in June 2016. For instance, in April, Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade visited the OCEA shipyard in Sables d’Olonne, France to inspect the four 24-meter fast patrol boats.

On September 6, Department of Transportation Undersecretary for Maritime Affairs Felipe Judan and OCEA’s director of maritime safety and security, Fabrice Weinbach, signed the contract effectiveness agreement for the acquisition of the vessels. The signing was witnessed by Secretary Arthur Tugade and French Embassy representative Laurent Estrade.

The first fast patrol boat is expected to be delivered to the Philippines after eight months, with remaining ones arriving in succession after a 45-day delivery gap, and the OPV arriving up to 23 months following the signing of the contract. The vessels, Philippine officials have said, are expected to be used by the PCG for a range of tasks, including maritime search and rescue, maritime environmental protection, patrols of the country’s exclusive economic zone, and deterring piracy and other crimes in southern Mindanao (See: “Philippines Coast Guard in the Spotlight Amid Islamic State Threat”).
