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).

< Edited >

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.

PH to use 2nd vessel from Japan to patrol Panatag Shoal
By: Julie M. Aurelio - @inquirerdotnet
Philippine Daily Inquirer / 04:35 PM November 19, 2016

The Philippine Coast Guard’s new multi-role response vessel (MRRV) from Japan will be deployed to patrol duties to the Panatag Shoal in the West Philippine Sea.

PCG spokesperson Commander Armand Balilo said the second of 10 MRRVs will arrive on December 8 and will be renamed the BRP Malabrigo.

“A sea trial was conducted the other day together with the Filipino crew, led by the incoming commanding officer. It was successful and she is ready to sail for the Philippines,” Balilo said.

Fleet commander Commodore Elson Hermogino and Lieutenant Commander Geronimo Tuvilla, BRP Malabrigo’s incoming commanding officer, led the inspection of the ship in Japan.

It is the second of 10 MRRVs from Japan and will be commissioned into service right away once it arrives in the country next month.

PCG responds to pirates attack in Basilan
Published: 19 February 2018

http://www.coastguard.gov.ph/index.php/11-news/1946-pcg-responds-to-pirates-attack-in-basilan

PCG: Personnel of Multi-Role Response Vessel-4402 (BRP Malabrigo) and Coast Guard Station Zamboanga responded to a distress call from M/V "Kudos" on pirate attacks of unidentified armed men, equipped with assorted high powered firearms onboard three motorbancas at vicinity 4.4 nautical miles South East off Sibago Island, Basilan yesterday, February 16.

M/V Kudos is a cargo vessel loaded with assorted steel bars with 27 crew onboard including the Master which departed Kudos Private Pier Panacan Davao City at 4 PM of 15 February bound for Pier 16 North Harbour.

After receiving the reports, Coast Guard District South Western Mindanao dispatched BRP Malabrigo from Ben Go Wharf enroute to the given coordinates and subsequently sighted the said distressed vessel while MCS 3003, which is moored at Sangali Fish Port was directed to conduct patrol at said area.

Initial information gathered from the ship captain, Captain Chris Paul Maligmat, revealed that the suspects attempted to board their vessel but the crew immediately responded by splashing boiled water which prompted the perpetrators to open fire.

The incident resulted to a minor injury suffered in the hands of one of the vessel’s crew which accordingly is caused from ship glass debris. First aid was immediately rendered to the injured person by the PCG Medical team who boarded the cargo vessel together with other personnel who conducted initial investigation.

M/V “Kudos” is now anchored safely at the City Pier after being escorted by MRRV-4402.
