FAP#2 (P160) - PN Frigate Acquisition Program
« on: October 25, 2017, 05:14:30 AM »
Now that we have publicly available information about the hull numbers, it's time to create the discussion for the second PN Frigate. The same way we created the second SSV thread.

For information about Frigate #1, see here: http://defenseph.net/drp/index.php?topic=35.0

Press release from Kelvin Hughes. Reproduced in its entirety.

SHARPEYE™ RADAR SYSTEM FOR PHILIPPINE NAVY FAP
23 Oct 2017

https://www.kelvinhughes.com/news/300-sharpeye-radar-system-for-philippine-navy-fap

Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) have contracted Kelvin Hughes to supply I Band and E/F Band SharpEye™ radars.

The Philippine Navy Frigate Acquisition Project (FAP) was awarded to HHI in October 2016 to build two 2,600 ton frigates for hand over starting in 2020. Kelvin Hughes has announced it is to supply HHI two SharpEye™ navigation radars along with multifunction bridge radar displays for the Philippine Navy FAP.

< Edited >

The new naval vessels for the Philippine Navy are expected to have enhanced survivability, seakeeping and manoeuvring capability and be operable in up to Sea State 5 and also have stealth characteristics. The vessels (hull numbers P159 and P160) will be further complemented by the low Radar Cross Section (RCS) design of the upmast SharpEye™ radar sensor carbon fibre housing and antenna turning unit. What’s more the reduced probability of intercept by ESM equipment characteristic inherent from the SharpEye™’s 300W low power output further aligns to the requirements derived from the HHI HDF-3000 frigate design.

The HDF-3000 type Frigate is the latest multi-purpose combatant designed by HHI in late 2000 under ROKN FFX Program. The modern, powerful, stealthy frigate will replace HDF-2000 Ulsan Class Frigate which had been operating as major force of ROKN ever since delivery by HHI in 1980 HDF-2000H is derivative and 2nd generation of HDF-2000 with helicopter landing deck and hangar, applying stealth technology.

Lorenzana reveals names of PH's first-missile capable frigates
By Priam Nepomuceno December 20, 2018, 12:18 pm

http://www.pna.gov.ph/articles/1057131

MANILA -- The two missile-armed frigates now being constructed by South Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) will be named BRP Antonio Luna and BRP Jose Rizal, two of the country's leading patriots.

This was bared by Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana when asked on the possible names of the two ships Thursday.

He added that these names are fitting as they are of Filipino heroes.

Rizal, the country's national hero, is known for his writings, which inspired the Philippine Revolution, against the abuses committed by Spanish colonial authorities while Luna is known for his staunch resistance against the Americans during the Philippine-American War.

The construction of the first missile-armed frigates is going smoothly, Philippine Navy (PN) flag-officer-in-command Vice Admiral Robert Empedrad said earlier.

"(Construction for) our (first-missile) frigate is moving forward, darating na s’ya sa February (or) March of 2020, all systems go and we should very happy, we should be happy for our country," he added.

The keel-laying for the first-missile-armed frigate took place last Oct. 16 in Ulsan, South Korea while the steel-cutting for the second ship took place last September 17.

HHI is expected to lay the keel for the second frigate by the first quarter of 2019.

The Philippines and HHI signed a PHP16-billion contract for two missile-armed frigates, with another PHP2 billion set aside for its weapon systems and munition. The projected delivery date for the first frigate is by 2020 and the second one, in 2021.

“The ceremony was conducted at the building dock number 6 of the Special and Naval Shipbuilding Division of HHI. Three blocks of the first PN frigate (with HHI Project Number 159) was installed on the dock,” Capt. Sergio Bartolome, the PN officer supervising the project, earlier said.

Keel-laying formally starts the ship construction and is among the four highlights of a vessel’s life, with the other three being launching, commissioning and decommissioning.

The keel is also considered the backbone of any ship and its breakage will result in the destruction and sinking of any water craft. The steel-cutting for the first frigate took place last April. (PNA)
