    China delivers third maritime patrol ship to Pakistan


    [​IMG]


    GUANGZHOU: On April 11, China officially handed a 600-ton patrol ship over to Pakistan's maritime safety authority in Guangzhou, Guangdong province, People’s Daily reported.


    Among other things, the ship will be used to safeguard Pakistan's maritime interests, the newspaper said.

    The new ship, just the third of its kind, was built by China Shipbuilding Trading Company Ltd. (CSTC) and China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC) Xijiang Shipbuilding Co., Ltd.

    Its two predecessors have already demonstrated their reliability and excellent performance during visits and exchanges, joint drills, maritime rescue and other missions in Pakistan.

    Pakistan's maritime safety authority expressed great appreciation for the quality of the ships and for sound cooperation with Chinese ship manufactures, who have promised to provide after-sale services.

    The ships are key to consolidating China-Pakistan relations, protecting Pakistan’s sea transportation and pushing forward the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor and Belt and Road Initiative.

    Hingol-Class maritime patrol vessels (MPVs) are a class of four ships being built by a partnership between China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC) and Karachi Shipyard & Engineering Works (KS&EW) for the Pakistan Maritime Security Agency (PMSA).

    The vessels are intended to perform a number of missions, including patrolling, policing, search-and-rescue, maritime security, surveillance, intelligence gathering, pollution control and fishery protection in Pakistan's exclusive economic zone (EEZ). In addition, the vessels can be used for disaster management and training operations.

    Construction details of the 600t MPVs
    The Pakistani Government approved the procurement of four 600t maritime patrol ships for the PSMA in December 2014. In June 2015, the Pakistani Ministry of Defence awarded a contract to China Shipbuilding Trading Company (CSTC), a trading arm of CSSC, to build four 600t vessels under a technology transfer agreement with KS&EW.

    The four vessels are named after Baluchistan rivers, namely Hingol, Basol, Dasht, and Zhob.

    Construction on the first ship in the class began in November 2015 and the vessel was delivered to Pakistan in December 2016. The vessel was commissioned into the PMSA at Gwadar Port, Pakistan, in January 2017.

    The third and fourth vessels are currently under construction with deliveries scheduled to be completed by April 2018.

    Hingol Class design and features
    The Hingol Class maritime security vessel's hull is fabricated using steel, while its superstructure is made of aluminium. The vessel has a length of 68m, a beam of 8.7m and a displacement of 600t.

    The ship is controlled by the crew onboard from the wheel house, which is provided with navigational aids, wireless communication, damage control and monitoring system, as well as an alarm system.

    It carries two 6.5m-long rigid-hulled inflatable boats (RHIBs), capable of travelling at speeds of approximately 40k, towards the stern of the main deck. Launched or recovered using electric hydraulic crane, the RHIBs can be used for patrol and troops transportation.

    "The four vessels are named after Baluchistan rivers, namely Hingol, Basol, Dasht, and Zhob."
    Life-saving equipment carried by the Hingol Class includes four inflatable life rafts, life buoys, life jackets, and rescue equipment.

    The onboard anchors, towing and mooring systems deliver load handling capabilities.

    Armament
    The main deck is equipped with one single-barrelled 30mm semi-automatic naval gun to defend the maritime patrol ship from inshore attack craft.

    A 12.7mm machine gun is mounted on port and starboard sides of the ship for use in patrol and anti-piracy missions.

    The ship is provided with a smoke locker, a missile system and a weapons storage unit, which is capable of holding two light machine guns, 18 pistols and 20 assault rifles.

    Navigation and communication systems
    Safe vessel navigation is provided by the onboard navigation systems, which include GPS navigation receiver, automatic identification system (AIS), gyrocompass, magnetic compass, GPS navigation receiver, electromagnetic log, navigation radar, Navtex, and autopilot.

    External and internal communication sub-systems incorporated in the vessel provide reliable communication between the vessel and shore command base, as well as with other ships.

    Propulsion
    The Hingol Class is powered by four 16-cylinder MTU 16V 4000M73L heavy-duty, medium-speed diesel engines, each generating an output power of 2,880kW at 2,050rpm.

    Each engine is connected to a reduction gearbox via flexible shaft coupling. Power for the electrical systems aboard the craft is generated by two generator sets.

    Four sets of propulsion shafting are installed to transmit drive from the gearbox to the propeller.

    Hingol Class maritime patrol vessels performance
    The maritime security vessel offers a maximum speed of 27k and a cruising speed of 15k. It can travel to a distance of up to 2,600nm at speeds between 15k and 18k. It can reach up to 650nm in sea state 3 conditions at its top speed. The vessel has the ability to endure for up to 15 days.

    China is trusted supplier but it would be nice if such things come with TOT so we dont have to rely on anyone in future and can earn for ourselves.

    The agreement was for six new PMSA ships (4x600t, 2x1500t) and they were to be built in Karachi. However, KSEW lost the construction bid because they couldn't keep production costs at par with CSTC. Ergo, the ships are coming from China.


    The agreement includes transfer-of-technology and KSEW will build a 1500t at home.
