Navy to get additional missile-armed frigates

By Priam Nepomuceno June 21, 2018, 3:46 pm

MANILA -- Aside from the two missile-armed frigates now undergoing construction at Hyundai Heavy Industries in South Korea, the Philippine Navy (PN) will be getting additional ships of the same class, Defense spokesperson Arsenio Andolong said Wednesday.

Acquisition for these additional frigates will start during Horizon Two of the Revised Armed Forces of the Philippines Modernization Program (RAFPMP), which is scheduled for 2018 to 2022 and has a budget of roughly PHP300 billion.

"In the PN, you will find this interesting. Aside from the two frigates that are currently being constructed, kukuha pa tayo ng additional (frigates)," Andolong said.

He, however, acknowledged that he has no idea how much money would be provided for the acquisition of these additional frigates.

"Yun ang hindi ko pa alam, dahil siyempre iba-budget, ia-apportion pa yung PHP300 billion (That is what I do not know yet. It's because there will be a budget allocation. The PHP300 billion will be apportioned)," he stressed.

The two frigates being built by Hyundai Heavy Industries has a contract of PHP18 billion, including its weapon systems and munitions.

It is designed to be capable of engaging air, surface and sub-surface threats. Deliveries are expected to start by 2020 and end on 2021. (PNA)

Keel-laying for 1st PH missile-armed frigate now a done deal
By Priam Nepomuceno  October 17, 2018, 5:37 pm

http://www.pna.gov.ph/articles/1051290

MANILA — The Philippine Navy (PN) announced that the keel-laying ceremony for one of two missile-armed frigates, contracted to Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI), formally took place in Ulsan, South Korea Tuesday.

Commander Jonathan Zata, Navy spokesperson, on Wednesday said the ceremony, which took place at 10 a.m. (Korea time), was attended by PN flag-officer-in-command, Vice Admiral Robert Empedrad; Defense Acquisition Office director Leodegario Decena Dela Paz; Naval Sea Systems chief, Rear Admiral Giovanni Carlo J. Bacordo; Offshore Combat Force head; Commodore Caesar Bernard Valencia; and PN project supervisor, Capt. Sergio Bartolome.

Also present was HHI senior vice president Yun Kong Yong.

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.

Projected delivery date of the first frigate is by 2020 while the second one is 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,” Bartolome added.

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

The keel is also considered the backbone of any ship and breaking it will result in the destruction and sinking of any water craft.

Steel-cutting for the first frigate took place last April. (PNA)

Progress steady in construction of PH Navy's first missile frigate

By Priam Nepomuceno, October 24, 2018, 12:46 pm

MANILA -- The Philippine Navy said the construction of the country's first missile-armed frigate is steadily progressing.

"(The construction of) our (first) frigate is moving forward. It will arrive in February (or) March of 2020. All systems go and we should be happy for our country," Navy flag-officer-in-command, Vice Admiral Robert Empedrad, said during an interview with reporters late Monday.

The keel-laying for the frigate took place in Ulsan, South Korea last October 16.

The Philippines and Hyundai Heavy Industries (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 in 2020 and the second in 2021.

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.

Arrival of 2 frigates to ease PH Navy patrol missions
By Priam Nepomuceno  January 11, 2019, 12:10 pm

http://www.pna.gov.ph/articles/1058596?fbclid=IwAR2x0Ylkxdi67zkZg9B8QKAwS6hopaLTpLd0dQIUNGjFa8mlXuL-yXmCdUU

MANILA -- The Philippine Navy (PN) will be in a more comfortable position to carry out its patrol mandate once the two missile-armed frigates, currently being constructed by South Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI), gets delivered in two years’ time.

Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana made the statement Friday when asked whether the Navy has sufficient assets to perform its duties, as several of its most capable ships are slated for periodic maintenance and upgrades.

This includes its flagship, the BRP Gregorio del Pilar (FF-15), which is still awaiting its replacement propellers following its grounding at the Hasa-Hasa Shoal on August 29 last year.

The ship is expected to become available for patrol duties by the end of the year.

"Hindi naman sabay sabay na pupunta sa repair dock 'yang mga yan. Scheduling lang yan (These ships will not be repaired all at the same time. It is a matter of scheduling). In two years’ time, when we get our two frigates, we will be more comfortable," he said in a message to the Philippine News Agency (PNA).

HHI is expected to deliver the first ship by 2020 and the second by 2021.

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.

When asked whether the defense department is planning to acquire additional Hamilton-class cutters from the US, which are being decommissioned and replaced with newer vessels, Lorenzana said the Philippines will wait first for the US to offer the ships to the country.

"No, we are not. We will await their offer and study if the acquisition is in line with our PN modernization," he added.

The Hamilton-class cutters were converted by the PN into the frigates, BRP Gregorio del Pilar, BRP Ramon Alcaraz (FF-16), and BRP Andres Bonifacio (FF-17). (PNA)

DND opens bids for ammo of 2 PH Navy frigates
By Priam Nepomuceno  February 5, 2019, 1:25 pm

http://www.pna.gov.ph/articles/1061017?fbclid=IwAR3YUGjeCwShaFimj5OXg5N2QVA-Cpk-5LJlupS1eM7sr3Kgoq2Iwvi98VE

MANILA -- The Department of National Defense (DND) on Tuesday announced that it has begun the acquisition process for the ammunition needed to arm the 76-mm automatic main cannons and 30-mm secondary cannons of the two missile-equipped frigates, being constructed by South Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI).

An invitation to bid bulletin posted on the DND website indicated that PHP77,536,964 is the approved budget for the so-called Frigate Acquisition Project Lot 2C Sublot-1 or the acquisition for the 76-mm ammunition.

Meanwhile, the budget for the Frigate Acquisition Project Lot 2C Sublot-2 or the acquisition for the 30-mm ammunition, is placed at PHP100 million. Both will be sourced from the AFP Modernization Trust Fund.

Winning bidders are required to deliver the items within 240 calendar days upon receipt of the Notice to Proceed.

They must also have completed a similar project in the past 10 years, DND Bids and Awards Committee 1 chair, Assistant Secretary Manuel Felino V. Ramos, said in the bulletin.

The pre-bid conference for both projects will be held at the DND Bids and Awards Committee Conference Room, Basement, Left Wing, DND Building, Camp Aguinaldo, Quezon City at 10 a.m. on February 7.

The opening of the bids will be held at the same venue at 10 a.m. on February 21.

Earlier, Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana said that the two missile-armed frigates being constructed by HHI will be named BRP Antonio Luna and BRP Jose Rizal, two of the country's leading patriots.

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

Rizal is considered the country's national hero for his writing against the abuses committed by Spanish colonial authorities that inspired the Philippine Revolution.

Luna, meanwhile, is known for his staunch resistance against the Americans during the Philippine-American War.
