The two last OCEA Fast Patrol Boat FPB 72 MKII for the Philippines Coast Guards were loaded onto the cargo going to Subic on October 16, 2018.

Following the arrival in Manila of the two first FPB 72 MKII "BORACAY" and "PANGLAO", it was a great emotion for the OCEA teams to load the two last "OCEA FPB 72 MKII" in order they join the Philippines Coast Guards fleet.

The training of the crews of the "BORACAY" and "PANGLAO" are already achieved, and the two first OCEA FPB 72 MKII are officially commissioned on the 15th October 2018 in presence of the Secretary of Department of Transportation Arthur P. TUGADE and the Secretary of Department of Finance Carlos G. DOMINGUEZ III.

The construction of the OPV 270, Offshore Patrol Vessel of 84 m for the Philippines Coat Guards is still under construction at OCEA shipyard for a delivery in August 2019.

We will inform you of the arrival of the "Malamawi" and "Kalanggaman" soon.

PCG commissions last two 24-meter fast patrol boats from France
Published: 16 January 2019

http://www.coastguard.gov.ph/index.php/notice-to-mariners/notam2019a/february-2019/11-news/2785-pcg-commissions-last-two-24-meter-fast-patrol-boats-from-france

PCG: The Philippine Coast Guard commissioned the last two 24-meter fast patrol boats with the Department of Budget and Management Secretary, Honorable Benjamin Diokno as guest of honor and speaker and the Department of Transportation Undersecretary for Administration and Finance, Atty. Gary V. De Guzman as the presiding officer at the National Headquarters Philippine Coast Guard today, January 16.

Barko ng Republika ng Pilipinas (BRP) Malamawi (Fast Patrol Boat-2403) under the helm of Lieutenant Commander Rolando l Lorenzana PCG and BRP Kalanggaman (FPB-2404) with Commander Glen B Daraug PCG as its Commanding Officer.

The four 24-meter fast patrol boats acquired from France were named after the prominent Philippine islands known for their tourism aesthetic and environmental features.

As a tradition, a vessel is being commissioned to grant its identity to belong to a service and to authorize it to perform the mandated missions of the agency, fly the national ensign, jack flag and the commission pennants.

PCG commandant, Admiral Elson Hermogino said in his speech, “These four patrol boats will be the new face of the PCG’s multi-purpose fast craft. Measuring 24 meters long and with top-speeds of 30 knots, the fast patrol boat is both agile and sturdy, perfect for patrolling our maritime boundaries as well as the narrow straits in between the islands of the archipelago. These ships are newly constructed by our friends from OCEA in France and made to our specifications, built for the Philippine seas.”

More so, Admiral Hermogino stated that since the commissioning of the first two FBSs in October 2018, they have been performing well in the PCG’s surveillance and law enforcement operations against smuggling, among others.

“With the introduction of two more such fine ships to our fleet, our operations will only become better and more efficient.  This is the way of the modern Coast Guard- modern equipment to match the skill and courage of our men and women”, he added.

Meanwhile, an 82-meter Offshore Patrol Vessel is scheduled to arrive in August 2019.
