Philippine Coast Guard OCEA OPV 270 - Successful first sea trials

The latest OCEA OPV unveils her great operational potential!

In the early morning of the 11th of October 2019, the 84m OPV designed by OCEA for the Philippines Coast Guard weighed anchor for her first sea trials.

These preliminary sea trials of the OCEA OPV 270 demonstrated the general good behavior of the vessel.

The OPV 270 has shown her excellent sea keeping performances, an essential capability in the perspective of future helicopter or RIHB operations.

The crew could experience the great comfort on board the vessel and the very low noise level in the wheelhouse. Indeed OCEA pays a specific attention to the comfort on board, in order to increase the operational readiness of the crew and complements.

The good maneuverability of the vessel allowed to push further the trials. The contractual maximum speed was even exceeded by one and a half knot!

These preliminary results make OCEA shipyard confident about the successful outcome of this major program.
