JICA completes design review for new Coast Guard vessels
(The Philippine Star) - February 1, 2018 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) has completed the design review for the two new 94-meter patrol vessels for procurement under a maritime capability improvement project of the Department of Transportation (DOTr) and the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG).

With the completion of the design review, the DOTr can now finalize the bid documents for the construction of the additional multi-role response vessels (MRRV) for the second phase of the Maritime Safety Capability Improvement Project (MSCIP II) which is supported by a 16.455 billion yen (P7.724 billion) official development assistance from Japan.

The new high endurance vessels would provide the PCG with a cruising range capability of 4,000 nautical miles in rough sea conditions and the capability to conduct continuous maritime patrol up to 15 days at 15 knots. These new assets would provide the country with wider maritime coverage for strategic and national security purposes.

In the event of maritime disaster, each vessel can hold as many as 500 passengers when used in rescue operations.

The project is among those approved by the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) board chaired by President Duterte in September 2016. The vessels are expected to be delivered by November 2020 and March 2021.

Latest information from the DOTr is that the first and second vessel is for delivery around March 2022 and June 2022, respectively, if there are no more delays. Bidding for construction is on-going.

The PCG requirement is for a 94-meter MRRV / OPV. It'll be interesting to see how the following ships compare with what the PCG eventually gets

If there is an ambiguity in the tech specs, almost every time, they say, just implement what’s in the latest Kunigami class variant.

Regarding the helicopter support equipment, the reference is the Gabriela Silang.

Mitsubishi ShipBuilding was issued a NOA last January 17, 2020 for the construction of two 94 meter MRRVs. Hopefully, no more issues so that the NTP can be issued right away.

Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) to acquire its BIGGEST PATROL SHIPS EVER!

https://www.facebook.com/DOTrPH/posts/1607704139368716

This after Department of Transportation (DOTr) Secretary Arthur Tugade and Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Co. Ltd., President and CEO Koji Okura led the signing of the contract for the supply and delivery of two (2) units of Multi-Role Response Vessels (MRRVs) under the Maritime Safety Capability Improvement Project, Phase II today, 7 February 2020.

In a simple but auspicious signing ceremony, Secretary Tugade emphasized that this development is a breakthrough towards the government's thrust of modernizing and upgrading the country's maritime protection and border patrol.

“The modernization of Philippine Coast Guard has been going fast and quick and very meaningful. In fact, in this effort to make it quick, fast, and very meaningful, the government of Japan has contributed very much. And to which I express my appreciation for your continued support,” the transportation chief said.

In his remarks, PCG Commandant Admiral Joel Garcia noted that the signing ceremony is a landmark achievement, not just for the department and agency, but also for the whole country as the PCG will now have its first-ever biggest patrol ships.

“We are making a milestone, not just for the Department of Transportation and Philippine Coast Guard, but also for the Philippines – acquiring the first-ever biggest ship for the Coast Guard. It is a 94-meter multi-role response vessel. It is a big stride to the development of this country in the context of maritime security and maritime safety,” Admiral Garcia said.

President Koji Okura, on the other hand, expressed his desire to continuously work and cooperate with the government in delivering various projects, programs, and initiatives as he noted, “We look forward to work with you all, in this important project and we sincerely appreciate your continuous cooperation to make this project successful.”

On the part of the Japanese government, JICA Chief Representative Yoshio Wada underscored the significance of the partnership between Japan and the Philippines in boosting economic trade, most especially in the maritime sector.

“Through the time, JICA partnering with PCG is a testament to the strong friendship between our two nations: Japan and the Philippines – both maritime nations where seaborne trade plays a crucial role in our economic growth.” Representative Yoshio Wada said.

Seen to improve the PCG's maritime safety capability, these MRRVs measuring approximately 94-meters, has a maximum speed of not less than 24 knots and an endurance of not less than 4,000 nautical miles. The patrol vessels will be of great help in responding to maritime incidents in the country's waters, up to the exclusive economic zone (EEZ), such as search and rescue operations, maritime security operations, and marine environmental protection, among others.

The vessels are expected to be delivered to the PCG by 2022.

The contract signing was witnessed by DOTr Undersecretary for Finance Garry De Guzman, Undersecretary for Legal Affairs Reinier Paul Yebra, Philippine Coast Guard Commandant Joel Garcia, and Assistant Secretary for Maritime Lino Dabi.

From the private sector, Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Co. Ltd. Business Department General Manager Kenichiro Mase and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Asia Pacific Pte. Ltd. Manila Representative Office Chief Representative Kazunori Yokome witnessed the ceremony.

Officials also present in the event were DOTr Usec. for Railways Timothy John Batan, Usec. for Aviation and Airports Manuel Tamayo, DOTr OIC Usec. for Administrative Service Artemio U. Tuazon Jr., Assistant Secretary for Procurement and Project Implementation Giovanni Lopez, Japan Embassy in the PH Minister for Economic Affairs Masahiro Nakata, JICA Chief Representative Yoshio Wada and representatives from Toyota Tsusho Corporation.

Given PCG's acquisition of rotary assets, will these MRRV have hangars? The reference design, the Kunigami class certainly does not have hangars.

These large MRRVs do have helicopter hangars.

As a minimum, design load of helideck platform and hangar should be able to accommodate the maximum-take-off weight of the heavier helicopter listed below with a margin for heavy landing conditions/ factor of safety:

1) AIRBUS EC145 T2
2) SIKORSKY S-76C
3) AGUSTAWESTLAND. AW139
4) BELL 412EP

Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Signs Contract for Two Multi-Role Response Vessels for the Philippines
-- Construction and Deliveries to be Completed in 2022 --
2020-03-06
・ Large MRRVs needed for severe-weather rescue missions and patrolling in offshore and coastal zones
・ The two vessels to be equipped with secured communication systems for EEZ surveillance, helideck and a hangar for helicopter operations, an underwater remotely operated vehicle for subsurface search and survey, and high-speed rubber boats

Tokyo, March 6, 2020 - Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Co., Ltd., a part of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Group, has concluded an agreement with the Republic of the Philippines to construct two multi-role response vessels (MRRVs). These vessels will be built at Shimonoseki Shipyard & Machinery Works for completion and delivery in 2022.

The MRRVs on order are vessels with length overall of approximately 94 meters. They also have a maximum speed of not less than 24 knots, and an endurance of not less than 4,000 nautical miles. Both vessels will be equipped with secured communication systems for Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) surveillance, helideck and a hangar for helicopter operations, an underwater remotely operated vehicle for subsurface search and survey, and high-speed rubber boats. They will contribute significantly to enhancing speed of response to maritime accidents or crimes on the high seas.

The newly agreed MRRVs will be provided as a project financed by the Japanese government. The program corresponds to Phase II of the Maritime Safety Capability Improvement Project concluded between the Republic of the Philippines and the Japanese government in October 2016. The project terms call for application of Japanese technology, notably the country's prowess in shipbuilding.

Going forward, Mitsubishi Shipbuilding will continue to build vessels for both domestic and overseas use that deliver superlative fuel efficiency and environmental performance and contribute to social and international safety and security. Working closely with its customers, the company will successively pursue resolution of a diverse range of navigational challenges.

Not just a hangar but also a naval gun. I hope it will not FFBNW again.
