At LIMA 2017, the Langkawi International Maritime And Aerospace Exhibition currently held in Malaysia, Damen shipyards of the Netherlands unveiled a new design proposal for the Royal Malaysian Navy's (RMN) Multi-Role Supply Ship (MRSS) requirement. Damen's MRSS is based on its Enforcer product line of landing platform docks (LPD), more precisely, the Enforcer 10000.
Talking to Navy Recognition during the show, a Damen representative said he could not discuss Damen's existing or future local partner but explained the Enforcer design is particulary suited to the RMN's needs.
The Enforcer 10000 measures 157 meters in length with a beam of 24.8 meters. Its range is 10,000 nautical miles. It is capable of transporting 400 to 700 troops as well as two LCMs in the well deck and two LCVPs in davits. Finally it is fitted with two to three helicopter spots.
According to Damen, The Enforcer LPD is characterised by a stern dock that creates a sheltered environment for the deployment of Landing Craft in adverse conditions, including Sea State 4. This feature results in an extensive weather window enabling operations for 80% of the time worldwide, whereas alternative concepts usually manage only 30%.
