PCG, ICG conduct joint maritime drill in Cavite 

PCG: A joint maritime exercise which enhances the capability in cross boarding, maritime pollution response and containment, and fire fighting was conducted by the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) together with Indian Coast Guard (ICG) at vicinity 1.9 NM Northwest of Sangley Point, Cavite City today, 10 January.

The joint exercise between the two agencies was participated by a 56-meter PCG search and rescue vessel, BRP Pampanga (SARV-003), small crafts and a 105-meter Offshore Patrol Vessel, ICG ship "Samarth".

During the drill, various scenarios were exhibited. Initially, both Coast Guards sent their boarding team and conducted a Visit, Board, Search and Seizure aboard two participating vessels. Subsequently, said team immediately demonstrated maritime pollution containment and response in prevention of oil spill as a vessel ran aground incurring a hole. The event was then concluded with a fire fighting operation to control and prevent a fire from occurring.

The event aims to further develop mutual understanding between agencies by sharing various maritime operations, procedures and skills which would mutually benefit both Coast Guards.

ICG Ship "Samarth" recently arrived in Manila last 07 January and will be heading to Yokohama, Japan before proceeding to Tokyo and Singapore to conduct the same exercise with their respective Coast Guards.

PCG and Indian Coast Guard (ICG) conducted Maritime Pollution Exercise 2017 at Manila Breakwater in January this year. The exercise will included cross boarding; firefighting; and maritime pollution exercise utilizing the PCG BRP Pampanga SARV 003 and the ICG Ship "Samarth".

The event at least showed the SARV-003 underway on its own power, AFTER, the publication of requests for the overhaul of engines reported earlier before. That being said, prudence demands that the PCG refrain from revealing the full operational readiness of its vessels.

i wonder if BAE Systems Australia, which bought Tenix Defence from its original owners, still builds the 56m SARV and that 35m vessel that were bought the PCG from Tenix several years ago. i browsed through BAE Systems Australia's website (and the mother unit's website too) and there seems to be no sign that these vessels are still being produced. maybe there is still a chance that they will be produced on a per order basis, unless bAE Systems already ditched it from the list of product offerings for good.

The Tenix acquisitions were heavily tainted with corruption. I won't mention the name but the PCG commandant then allegedly profitted from the acquisition. There was an insider then at timawa.net that criticized how the ships broke down often and the low sea worthiness due to needed maintenance. The newer light house classes might turn out to be better designs for the PCG needs.

Mayk,

Do you recall if the issues with the Tenix were inherent to the design or an organization issue?

The PCG isn't exactly known for a get-it-done attitude.

Mayk, i did not know that the Tenix purchase was controversial and that the ships have low availability rates.

As far back as 2010, the PCG was already talking about life extension for the Tenix ships when they were only 7-10 yrs old.

I doubt its because of operational tempo. So it must be the design or maintenance culture or both.

^ life extension for ships that are just 10 years old max? that speaks a lot about the quality of the Tenix ships. good thing the Japanese-built ships are slowly coming in and PCG will be getting additional ships from France.

Now we know why BRP Pampanga took part in the pollution control exercise with the Indian Coast Guard
