PRES. DUTERTE COMMISSIONS NAVOTAS-MADE BFAR VESSELS

Two Multi-Mission Offshore Vessels (MMOV) made by Filipino engineers and shipbuilders in the shipyards of Navotas will be commissioned by President Rody Duterte in ceremonies in Davao City on December 22 this year.

The two vessels, MMOV Lapu-lapu and MMOV Francisco Dagohoy, will join the growing fleet of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR), an agency under the Department of Agriculture.

President Duterte approved the DA-BFAR proposal to name the two vessels after two largely unheralded Filipino heroes, Lapulapu and Francisco Dagohoy.

Lapulapu was a Mactan Island chieftain who slew Portuguese explorer Fernando de Magallanes as he and Spanish Conquistadores waded to shore in the island.

Francisco Dagohoy was a Boholano who led the longest rebellion against the Spaniards in the Island of Bohol.

Built by Josefa Slipway shipbuilders under the strict supervision of international monitors to conform with established standards for sea vessels, each of the vessels cost about P250-M or P500-M for both the MMOVs.

Ships of the same size, measuring 50.5-meters, built in other countries and procured by the Philippine are estimated to cost about P750-M each, thus a savings to government of about P1-B for the two vessels.

Josefa Slipway started building the vessels in 2016 using funds of the BFAR and were completed after two years.

The two new MMOVs will be manned by the Philippine Coast Guard and will join the BFAR fleet of 14 small vessels and the MV DA/BFAR which is the research ship of the Department.

All except the MV DA/BFAR which is manned by DA-BFAR employees and boarded by Marine scientists are handled by the Philippine Coast Guard.

The two MMOVs will be used in the strengthened campaign against illegal fishing and poaching by foreign fishing vessels.
The size of the two vessels will allow these to sail farther from the coast lines and effectively safeguard the country's fishing grounds.
The DA-BFAR will propose for the acquisition of more MMOVs to be made in the Philippines.

DAVAO CITY, Philippines – Two Philippine-made vessels named after "unheralded" heroes were commissioned here on Thursday, December 21.

President Rodrigo Duterte and Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel Piñol led the commissioning of vessels Lapu-Lapu and Francisco Dagohoy. Both vessels are classified as Barko ng Republika ng Pilipinas (BRP) or ships of the Republic of the Philippines.

The ships, according to Piñol, would join the 16-vessel fleet of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) in the fight against illegal fishing. They can also be used to respond during disasters and to transport food.

2 Visayan heroes 'elevated'

A delighted President addressed the crowd at the Sasa Wharf.

At last, said Duterte, two historical figures of Visayan descent have been "elevated," with the ships named after them.

"I've always been wondering eternally and complaining also. No offense intended to anybody, Filipino man tayong lahat (we're all Filipinos). Bakit kaming mga Bisaya walang hero (Why don't the Visayan people have a hero) in the roll of our national heroes?" the President said.

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.
