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.
