MANILA, Philippines – Ten brand new vessels from Japan will be delivered to the Philippine Coast Guard start- ing next year until 2018.

Some of these ships will be assigned to the West Philippine Sea to augment those being used for search and rescue operations.

The first three vessels would start arriving every other month in the second half of next year, five more by 2017 and the remaining two in 2018, according to Coast Guard officer-in-charge Rear Admiral William Melad.

“Our intention is to deploy these multi-role response vessels (MRRV) to the different districts,” he said. “We would assess which district needs an immediate vessel and we will give priority to that district... We would see if there is a need to add ships to the West Philip- pine Sea.”

Melad said the deployment of more ships to the West Philippine Sea was not in response to the territorial dispute with China.

The Coast Guard is also taking into consideration that the vessels to be deployed in the West Philip- pine Sea should be bigger than 40 meters to withstand the big waves and strong winds during typhoons, Melad said.

“These 40-meter vessels would be used for security, law enforcement and for search and rescue,” he said. “These are multi-role vessels so these could perform several functions such as prevent illegal fishing and anti-piracy patrol.”

The acquisition of the 10 vessels from Japan is covered by the Maritime Safety Capability Improvement Project.

It was awarded by the Department of Transportation and Communications to the Japan Marine United Corp.

It is being implemented as an official development assistance project, via a tied loan extended by the Japan International Co- operation Agency (JICA).

The loan facility covers P7.373 billion out of the total project of P8.807 billion.

The balance would be covered by the Philippine counter- part of P1.434 billion.

  2. Usia sesuatu kapal perlu diambil kira juga bro. Nothing last forever. Yg muda akan tua. U got to contend with the issue of metal fatigue also. Gegaran akibat penembakan missile dan meriam utama biasa tidak mampu lagi ditanggung secara efektif oleh kapal yg dianggap "tua". And thats without the add on weight of multiple sensors and ect. Aset2 yg telah dianggap berusia d dalam TLDM telah dberikan tugas utama sebagai aset rondaan sahaja atas faktor2 yg telah saya sebutkan diatas. Itu sebabnya pihak PN (dan TNI AL) sendiri mengusulkan pembelian kapal baru..

  3. @shed ini kan cuma meneliti efficiency n effectiveness pilipinas dia tahu dia butuh bnyk kapal laut...nah utk permulaan d beli nya kapal ronda murah dan bs dpt bilangan yg bnyk....ini pembeluan bijak menurut aku..bukan kayak sesetengah negeri wang setitik tok mau beli kapal termahal tpi cuma bs dapat beberapa biji aja loh...pilipinas priority is show presence in scs when its just getting warmer down there rather than buying things only when scs already brewing with troubles...ada beda engak?

  4. Jika bg tujuan rondaan anti perlanunan @ piracy kapal2 seperti yg dperolehi oleh pihak Filipina dilihat sebagai memadai walaupun masih tidak mencukupi. Masalahnya pihak Filipina kini berhadapan dengan angkatan laut china (PLAN) berkaitan dgn tuntutan bertindihnya d kepulauan Sprately. Apakah kapal2 lama ini mampu menggugat pihak PLAN sedangkan pihak USN sendiri dilihat menghadapi kesukaran utk mengekang dominasi china d SCS..
