JICA and GOP sign agreement for ODA on maritime safety
December 16, 2013

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.

PCG conducts Maritime Security Operation in Benham Rise
Published: 03 May 2017

http://www.coastguard.gov.ph/index.php/notice-to-mariners/notam-2017/february-2017/11-news/1582-pcg-conducts-maritime-security-in-benham-rise

BRP Malapascua (MRRV-4403) together with the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources, MCS-3001 departed at the Headquarters Philippine Coast Guard to conduct maritime security operation at the vicinity waters of Benham Rise today, May 3.



The operation aims to monitor the Joint Fisheries Research activity in the said waters.

Benham Rise is a 13-million-hectare underwater plateau located near Aurora. In 2009, The Philippines claimed this feature as part of its continental shelf in a claim lodged with the United Nations Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf. This claim was then approved under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) in 2012.

According to marine experts, the Benham Rise is about 2,000 to 5,000 meters deep and is rich with natural gas and other resources.

MRRV 4403 BRP Malapascua is under the helm of CDR GARY DALE C GIMOTEA PCG while MCS 3001 is skippered by CAPT LUISITO S SIBAYAN PCG.

My thoughts exactly.

Either someone screwed up, or they are following a recommended maintenance schedule.

Is the ship first in class? Someone screwed up or daresay, sabotaged it? Not unheard of either. If it's not a screw up then this does not bode well as far as maintainability does it?

It's the third ship in the class.

Problem with maintenability . . . or the PCG has maintenance lapses?

PCG, BFAR STEP UP MARITIME EXERCISES IN THE WEST PHILIPPINE SEA

https://www.facebook.com/coastguardph/posts/731706660831324

Utilizing eight capital ships of the national government, the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) and the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) have stepped up the conduct of comprehensive maritime exercises in the West Philippine Sea (WPS) yesterday, 24 April 2021. 

Crewmembers of participating PCG vessels, as well as PCG-manned BFAR vessels have started their intensified training on navigation, small boat operations, maintenance, and logistical operations.

The BRP Gabriela Silang (OPV-8301) and BRP Sindangan (MRRV-4407) started their maritime exercises near the Bajo De Masinloc yesterday, while the BRP Cabra (MRRV-4409), BRP Malapascua (MRRV-4403) and PCG-manned BFAR vessels commenced their ship interoperability training near the Pag-asa Island last week.

On board their respective vessels, other PCG personnel, composed of lawyers, medical doctors, nurses, rescue swimmers, weapons, communications, and information systems technicians, and other maritime specialists, also undergo lectures and drills on manual plotting, piloting, firefighting, and basic life support.

PCG Spokesperson, Commodore Armando Balilo said the maritime exercises led by the Task Force Pagsasanay are intended to achieve operational and logistical efficiency to optimize the utilization of Coast Guard’s manpower and assets through a harmonized command and control, and supply chain.

“We are supporting the whole-of-nation approach in securing our maritime jurisdiction, especially the efforts of the National Task Force for the West Philippine Sea (NTF-WPS) to undertake maritime security, maritime safety, maritime law enforcement, maritime search and rescue, and marine environmental protection roles in our country’s waters,” the Coast Guard Spokesperson added.
Aside from the WPS, said capital ships will also perform maritime exercises in the Batanes Group of Islands, Benham Rise, as well as in the southern and eastern portions of the Philippines.

Staying true to its humanitarian mandate, the PCG is also planning to conduct medical and dental missions among local residents and coastal families in the Pag-asa Island next week.

On 06 April 2021, PCG Commandant, Admiral George V Ursabia Jr has directed the activation of Task Force Pagsasanay, with Vice Admiral Oscar Endona, Commander of the PCG’s Maritime Security Command, as head, as well as Rear Admiral Ronnie Gil Gavan and Rear Admiral Allan Dela Vega as decision makers on matters of policies and operations.

The Task Force Pagsasanay aims to intensify and harmonize the capacity building and sustainment efforts for PCG personnel and assets deployed in 15 PCG Districts, specifically in safeguarding the Philippine waters.
