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).

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.

Philippine Coast Guard’s sixth Parola-class vessel arrives home

Key Points

    The Philippine Coast Guard has received its sixth Parola-class patrol vessel
    Service is on track to receive the entire class of 10 vessels by end-2018

The Philippine Coast Guard’s (PCG) sixth multirole response vessel (MRRV) has arrived in the country, the service announced on 11 October.

The 44 m boat, which will be known in service as BRP Sindangan with pennant number 4407, arrived at Pier 13 in the Port of Manila’s South Harbour on the day of the announcement. Sindangan joins five existing MRRVs that were commissioned by the PCG between August 2016 and August 2017.

The vessels, commonly known as the Parola-class patrol vessels in the Philippines, were ordered under a government programme known as the Maritime Safety Capability Improvement Project for the Philippine Coast Guard (Phase II).

A contract to build the vessels was awarded by the Philippine Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC, to which the PCG reports) to Japanese shipbuilder Japan Maritime United Corporation (JMUC) in May 2015.

The Parola class derives its design from the Raizan class that is currently in service with the Japan Coast Guard. Parola-class vessels are powered by two MTU 12V 4000 M93L diesel engines, and can attain a maximum speed of 27 kt. The platform’s standard range is approximately 300 n miles at 15 kt, and it can accommodate a crew of 25, including five officers.

Japan Information and Culture Center (JICC) - Press Release No. 44- 2017

http://www.ph.emb-japan.go.jp/itpr_en/00_000401.html

On November 20, 2017, Ambassador Koji Haneda attended the Turn-Over Ceremony of three 7m class fast boats (Rigid Hull Inflated Boats: RHIBs) and the Commissioning Ceremony of three 44m class patrol vessels (Multi-Role Response Vessels: MRRVs) at the Headquarters of the Philippines Coast Guard (PCG).  Secretary of Transportation, Atty. Arthur Tugade, National Security Adviser and Director-General of the National Security Council, Gen. Hermogenes Esperon also attended the ceremonies.  These high-speed boats and patrol vessels are provided to the Philippines through Japan’s Official Development Assistance (ODA).

The three 7m class high-speed boats are the first batch of the thirteen high-speed boats that will be provided to the Philippines with Japan’s grant.  They are provided in response to President Duterte’s direct request.   

The three newly commissioned patrol vessels are the 4th, 5th, and 6th vessels ,“Capones”,”Suluan” and “Sindangan” respectively of the ten 44m class patrol vessels that are financed, designed, and built through Japan’s support. 

Together with coastal monitoring radars that Japan has recently decided to provide to the Philippines, these newly provided ships are aimed to improve the Philippines’ patrol, search and rescue, anti-terrorism, and law enforcement capabilities.

In his remarks, Ambassador Haneda pointed out that President Duterte recently stated in Tokyo that our two countries are entering a “Golden Age” of strategic partnership, and that Ambassador Haneda is looking forward to working together in further strengthening such relations.

No timeline yet on BRP Gregorio Del Pilar removal
By Priam Nepomuceno  September 3, 2018, 2:20 pm

MANILA -- There is still no timeline to follow regarding the recovery of Philippine Navy (PN) flagship, BRP Gregorio Del Pilar (FF-15), which ran aground off Hasa-Hasa (international name Half-Moon) Shoal, Palawan Wednesday.

This was stressed by PN flag-officer-in-command Vice Admiral Robert Empedrad in an interview with reporters Sunday.

He added that this will be only realized once the total extent of the damage is determined when the two privately-owned tugboats, which are expected to be on the scene by Monday, have arrived and managed to tow the frigate off the shoal.

"But sa ngayon (as for now) the ship is intact, the crew are (safe) and we are on top on the situation sa pagka-retrieve sa kanya (BRP Gregorio del Pilar)," Empedrad added.

Also, the PN chief said China, South Korea, and the US - along with the country's ASEAN neighbors - have all offered help in the ongoing recovery operations but the Philippines opted to go alone with the operations as waiting for them would take time. Initial reports indicated that the grounded frigate is recoverable.

BRP Sindangan (MRRV 4407) has arrived in the area 11 a.m. Friday and will be joined by the BRP Cabra (MRRV 4409) anytime soon to render any assistance needed to pluck out the grounded BRP Gregorio Del Pilar, especially if there is a need to remove non-essential personnel to lighten the ship.

BRP Nestor Reinoso (PG-380) is also on hand to provide help.

Earlier, military public affairs chief Col. Noel Detoyato said that two tugboats have left Batangas, one Thursday and one Friday, to help in the recovery operations. The BRP Gregorio Del Pilar is one of three Hamilton-class cutters acquired by the PN from the United States Coard Guard and converted into frigates.
