MANILA -- The BRP Jose Rizal (FF-150), the Philippine Navy (PN)'s first-ever guided-missile frigate, will be undergoing various sea trials from November 23 to 27.

Navy public affairs office chief, Lt. Commander Maria Christina Roxas, in a statement Thursday night, said the sea trials will be conducted by the technical crew of South Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI).

The 107.5-meter long frigate will sail towards the open waters off Ulsan, Busan, and Mokpo in South Korea to measure its performance and general seaworthiness.

Representatives from international provider of classification, compliance and consultancy services to the marine industry, Lloyd's Register of Shipping will witness the activity to ensure that the ship’s construction has met the required standards.

Roxas said the sea trials are the last phase of construction prior to the frigate’s delivery to the Philippines scheduled tentatively in April or May 2020.

This will take place six months after the vessel was launched at the HHI shipyard for the first time at HHI shipyard in Ulsan last May 23.

"The PHP8-billion warship is a big-ticket acquisition of the Armed Forces of the Philippines that is poised to be the benchmark of PN’s transformation journey," she said.

Incidentally, BRP Antonio Luna (FF-151), the sistership of BRP Jose Rizal, was launched in the same facility last November 8.

The contract for the two ships is placed at PHP16 billion with another PHP2 billion for weapon systems and munitions.

These ships are capable of conducting Anti-Air Warfare (AAW), Anti-Surface Warfare (ASUW), Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) and Electronic Warfare (EW) Operations. It is fully equipped with Surface-to-Air and Surface-to-Surface Missiles, torpedoes, launchers, and weapon systems.

The activity signifies that the PN is inching closer to its dream of acquiring highly capable warships.

Its crew and maintenance personnel are currently undergoing training in the Republic of Korea.

Roxas said the BRP Jose Rizal provides leverage for the Navy’s bid of becoming a stronger and more credible force that the Philippines as a maritime nation can be proud of. (PNA)

MANILA -- The first sea trials of BRP Jose Rizal (FF-150), the country's first-ever guided-missile frigate, proved successful.

"The first sea trials (which took place last November 23 to 27) was successful even in Sea State 4 conditions," Philippine Navy (PN) public affairs office chief Lt. Commander Maria Christina Roxas said in a message to the Philippine News Agency Tuesday.

Sea State 4 refers to conditions at sea where waves are reaching four to eight feet in height. BRP Jose Rizal can withstand up to Sea State 7 or conditions with very high waves.

"Another set of sea trials is tentatively scheduled for December 16," Roxas added.

BRP Jose Rizal's first sea trials took place off the open waters of Ulsan, Busan, and Mokpo in South Korea and done to measure its performance and general seaworthiness.

Present were the technical crew of South Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) along with representatives from the international provider of classification, compliance and consultancy services to the marine industry, Lloyd's Register of Shipping.

Roxas said the sea trials are the last phase of construction before the frigate’s delivery to the Philippines scheduled tentatively in April or May 2020.

This took place six months after the vessel was launched at the HHI shipyard for the first time in Ulsan last May 23.

"The PHP8-billion warship is a big-ticket acquisition of the Armed Forces of the Philippines that is poised to be the benchmark of PN’s transformation journey," she added.

Incidentally, BRP Antonio Luna (FF-151), the sister ship of BRP Jose Rizal, was launched in the same facility last November 8. The contract for the two ships was pegged at PHP16 billion with another PHP2 billion for weapon systems and munitions.

These ships are capable of conducting Anti-Air Warfare, Anti-Surface Warfare, Anti-Submarine Warfare, and Electronic Warfare Operations and it is fully equipped with surface-to-air and surface-to-surface missiles, torpedoes, launchers, and weapon systems. (PNA)

2nd sea trial of BRP Jose Rizal satisfactory: PH Navy
By Priam Nepomuceno, December 31, 2019, 10:32 am

MANILA -- BRP Jose Rizal (FF-150), the country's first missile frigate, performed well during its second sea trials, which took place last December 15 to 18.

"The second sea trials (were conducted) with satisfactory results," said Philippine Navy (PN) public affairs office chief, Lt. Commander Maria Christina Roxas, in a message to the Philippine News Agency (PNA) on Tuesday.

During the testing period, Roxas said systems like the ship's propulsion console, freshwater generator, and steering gear were tested. Also, the frigate's propulsion system was tested and checked for vibration.

Likewise, the ship's turning circle when at the maximum design speed of 25 knots and rudders being shifted to "hard left and hard right progressive speed" was determined, the PN official added.

Roxas said the BRP Jose Rizal was made to undergo zigzag and spiral maneuvers along with crash stop ahead (full astern to full ahead) and crash stop astern (full ahead to full astern) along with another vibration measurement test.

The ship's S and X band radars, which are for surveillance and targeting applications, were also tested along with the frigate's fuel consumption at 85 percent of "maximum continuous rating" or maximum speed.

BRP Jose Rizal has a maximum designed speed of 25 knots and a cruising speed of 15 knots and a range of 4,500 nautical miles. The first sea trials, which were conducted in the waters of Ulsan, Busan, and Mokpo last November 23 to 27, had the frigate performing well even at Sea State Condition 4 where waves are known to reach between four to eight feet.

It was conducted to check the ship's performance and general seaworthiness. "(Present during the 2nd sea trials) are PN representatives, (ship-builder) Hyundai Heavy Industries QM (quality management) technicians, OEM (original equipment manufacturer) engineers and Lloyd's Register of Shipping inspector," Roxas earlier said.

For the third and fourth sea trials, which are still to be scheduled, this will be more on testing the ship's various weapons systems, she added.

The sea trials are the last phase of construction before the frigate’s delivery to the Philippines scheduled tentatively in April or May 2020. This took place six months after the vessel was launched at the HHI shipyard for the first time in Ulsan last May 23.

"The PHP8 billion warship is a big-ticket acquisition of the Armed Forces of the Philippines that is poised to be the benchmark of PN’s transformation journey," Roxas earlier said.

Incidentally, BRP Antonio Luna (FF-151), the sistership of BRP Jose Rizal, was launched in the same facility last November 8.

The contract for the two ships is placed at PHP16 billion with another PHP2 billion for weapon systems and munitions.

These ships are capable of conducting Anti-Air Warfare (AAW), Anti-Surface Warfare (ASUW), Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) and Electronic Warfare (EW) Operations and it is fully equipped with Surface-to-Air and Surface-to-Surface Missiles, torpedoes, launchers, and weapon systems.

The activity signifies that the PN is inching closer to its dream of acquiring highly capable warships.

Its crew and maintenance personnel are currently undergoing training in South Korea.

The Philippine Navy is set to send some of its personnel to South Korea to undergo training so that they can man and operate the frigates that the navy has acquired, according to Flag Officer in Command Vice Admiral Robert Empedrad.

In his exit interview on Wednesday night, Empedrad was asked about the status of the two-unit frigate acquisition project of the Navy. According to him, the BRP Jose Rizal has already finished its sea trials.

“Actually tapos na ‘yung sea trial ng ship at sea. Na-test na nila lahat and then okay na. There is some fine-tuning in the systems, ‘yung weapon systems," Empedrad said.

"Ang next na gagawin ng Navy is ipadala ‘yung crew to Korea this first quarter because based on our agreement with the chief of the Navy of the Republic of Korea, iti-train ‘yung crew natin, the whole crew to one of their class frigates."

Empedrad said the frigates will be delivered to Subic Bay. "Pagpunta ng frigate to Subic from Korea, hindi pa tayo ang magma-man niyan. It will be manned by selected crew of the Hyundai Heavy Industries... Pagdating sa Subic, saka lang puwedeng i-man ng ating Navy personnel."
