MANILA –In its first meeting under the administration of President Rodrigo R. Duterte, the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) Board confirmed approvals of nine projects, amounting to an estimated total cost of PhP171.14 billion, on September 14, 2016.

...

Maritime Safety Capability Improvement Project for the PCG, Phase II of the DOTr and Philippine Coast Guard.  The project involves the acquisition of two (2) heavy weather, high endurance 94-meter Multi-Role Response Vessels (MRRVs), to provide the PCG with vessels with a cruising range capability of 4,000 nautical miles, can be used in Sea-State 6 (wave height of up to 6 meters) in rough sea condition, and are capable to conduct continuous maritime patrol up to 15 days at 15 knots.

Each vessel, as claimed by PCG, will enable them to recover as much as 500 passengers in the event of a maritime disaster, as well as provide the country with wider maritime coverage for strategic and national security purposes.

Given these upgraded vessel capacities, the project now costs PhP8 billion and with the NEDA Board approval, are expected to be delivered by November 2020 and March 2021 for each vessel, respectively.

b. Increase in cost by about 63% from PhP4,922.59 million, as approved by the ICC and confirmed by the NEDA Board, to PhP8,017.41 million* [Official Development Assistance (ODA) – Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA)];

c. Change in implementation period from 2016-2019 to 2016-2021. The delivery of the two vessels is scheduled in November 2020 and March 2021; and

d. Change in technical specifications of vessels.
..............................................................................
It will involve the acquisition of two (2) heavy weather, high endurance Multi-Role Response Vessels (MRRVs) for the PCG.

The acquisition of 80 to 125-m category as well as 35 to 45-m category MRRV is identified as top priority (i.e., for immediate implementation) in the PCG Updated 15-Year Capability Development Program (15YCDP).

The procurement of ten (10) 40-m MRRVs under Phase 1 and two (2) 94-m MRRVs under this project (Phase 2) is consistent with the asset acquisition program of PCG under the Updated 15YCDP

On the planned 94 meter PCG ships from Japan, parang may mali sa translation ng Google? :)  It is not clear to me the expected 1200 hours (2 vessels) shipping service time (from MOFA Japan).

What is clear is 15 days is the endurance of the ships (from NEDA) and the expected 12 regular patrols per year per vessel (from MOFA Japan), so that's a possible 180 days of patrol per vessel.

Quote
November 16, Heisei 28
(3) Effectiveness

This plan is aimed at ensuring safety at sea, that is, the number of vessels that are the legs of maritime operations for carrying out operations such as maritime search and rescue, navigation safety management, maritime law enforcement, marine environmental conservation, etc. are insufficient Which will contribute to improving the maritime safety of the country concerned. It is also expected to contribute to closer bilateral relations between Japan and the country by utilizing Japanese technology. As an operation / effect indicator, the shipping service time (time / 2 vessels) per year is from 0 hour (2015: actual value) to 1200 hours (2023: target value two years after completion of the project), the number of regular cruise (time / 2 vessels) is expected to be changed from 0 times (2015: actual value) to 24 times (2023 year: target value two years after project completion).

We now have a more specific tentative date for bidding and awarding of the two 94 meter MRRVs, it's between April to October 2018. 

Target start of construction is January 2019.

April 2018 is actually the start of the consulting services for the "Procurement, Construction Supervision and Management, and Operation and Maintenance Advisory Services" for the 94 meter MRRVs.
