December 14 -- The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) has signed a 18.732 billion Japanese Yen loan agreement with the Government of the Philippines to further boost maritime safety and enhance the capabilities of the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG).

< Edited >

The ODA loan project involves the construction of ten 40-meter Multi-Role Response Vessels (MRRVs) that is set to augment the Philippine Coast Guard Fleet operations. The said MRRVs are expected to contribute to maritime safety, maritime law enforcement, monitoring, pollution control, disaster response, and among others. Advanced shipbuilding technologies from Japan will be adopted in the construction of the vessels. Further, the project would also involve human resource development of PCG to improve skills in operating and maintaining the MRRVs.

"This initiative combines enhancing the Philippine capability on search and rescue responsibilities with disaster response and maritime safety. Since the Philippines is an archipelago, maritime safety is critical to the country's socio-economic development," said Takahiro Sasaki, JICA Chief Representative in the Philippines.

PCG conducts Maritime Security Operation in Benham Rise
Published: 03 May 2017

http://www.coastguard.gov.ph/index.php/notice-to-mariners/notam-2017/february-2017/11-news/1582-pcg-conducts-maritime-security-in-benham-rise

BRP Malapascua (MRRV-4403) together with the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources, MCS-3001 departed at the Headquarters Philippine Coast Guard to conduct maritime security operation at the vicinity waters of Benham Rise today, May 3.



The operation aims to monitor the Joint Fisheries Research activity in the said waters.

Benham Rise is a 13-million-hectare underwater plateau located near Aurora. In 2009, The Philippines claimed this feature as part of its continental shelf in a claim lodged with the United Nations Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf. This claim was then approved under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) in 2012.

According to marine experts, the Benham Rise is about 2,000 to 5,000 meters deep and is rich with natural gas and other resources.

MRRV 4403 BRP Malapascua is under the helm of CDR GARY DALE C GIMOTEA PCG while MCS 3001 is skippered by CAPT LUISITO S SIBAYAN PCG.
