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.

As of this post, no word yet on the name for the ship. But it is expected in 2018.

Japan-Philippines Security Ties in Focus with Patrol Vessels

The collaboration between the two countries in the maritime security domain was in the spotlight again recently.

Last week, the Philippines commissioned the last two of ten patrol vessels that it had been receiving from Japan. Though the development was part of an ongoing induction process that has been underway since 2016, it nonetheless once again highlighted the ongoing collaboration between the two countries in the maritime security domain.

The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) had indicated that the MRRVs, which are 44 meters in length, have a standard cruising speed of 15 knots, and a range of 300 nautical miles, would be used for the PCG for a variety of purposes once they were delivered, including search and rescue operations, assistance in marine environment protection, law enforcement, relief, and transport. It would also fill some longtime gaps for Manila which faces a wide range of maritime security challenges

< Edited >

Last week, this aspect of Japan-Philippine ties was in the spotlight again as the Philippine Coast Guard commissioned the two final Parola-class patrol vessels. The two ships, which have been named BRP Bagacay and BRP Cape Engaño and assigned pennant numbers 4410 and 4411 respectively, were officially commissioned on August 23.

The commissioning of the final two vessels effectively represents the end of a two-year commissioning process for the whole class of new vessels. It is also yet another step forward for the PCG in this regard, which had indicated that it had wanted to be able to fully operate all of the vessels by the end of 2018 or early 2019 to full current maritime gaps and address some of the challenges that the Philippines faces in that domain.

New Coast Guard ship sent to patrol 'southern backdoor'
Roel Pareño (The Philippine Star) - September 18, 2018 - 3:55pm

ZAMBOANGA CITY, Philippines — The Philippine Coast Guard has deployed one of its newest patrol vessels to fight terrorism, piracy and armed robbery at sea in the southern Philippines.

BRP Bagacay (Multi Role Response Vessel-4410), which has been assigned to PCG District Southwestern Mindanao, arrived Tuesday morning at the pier of the Philippine Ports Authority.

Lt. Gen. Arnel dela Vega, Western Mindanao Command chief, who was a guest at the arrival ceremony, said the additional deployment of a PCG patrol ship will help boost security along the border in the southern Philippines, where Abu Sayyaf-linked pirate groups operate.

Coyme said the BRP Bagacay was designed with a bulletproof navigation bridge, and is equipped with fire monitors, night vision capability, a work boat, and radio direction finder capability.
