    From April 24 2018:
    Dutch shipbuilder Damen recently hosted a keel-laying ceremony for the first of two Pakistan Navy offshore patrol vessels at its shipyard in Galati, Romania.

    The ceremony was attended by Pakistan Navy Rear Admiral Farrokh Ahmad, Deputy Chief of the Naval Staff (Projects), other navy officials and Damen representatives.

    Pakistan and Damen signed a contract for the construction of two OPVs in June 2017.

    Contrary to earlier announcements which said Pakistani shipbuilder Karachi Shipyard & Engineering Works Ltd. would be involved in OPV construction, both vessels will be built in Romania.

    The OPVs built for Pakistan will have a displacement of around 1900 tons and an overall length of 90 meters. Pakistan Navy OPV specifications do not precisely match those found on OPV models offered by Damen. The Dutch company’s official offering includes the larger OPV 2400 and a slightly smaller OPV 1800.

    According to photos shared by the Pakistan Navy, offshore patrol vessels built for Pakistan are designated as OPV 1900. The vessels will be suited for anti surface, anti air operations, maritime security operations (MSO), day & night helicopter operations, combat search and rescue (CSAR) and surveillance and intelligence gathering.

    Why even the OPV is being procured from outside? We should have been able to build this inhouse with sub-systems being procured from any suitable country ...

    So, now Karachi Shipyard is not manufacturing these? Hmmm... From where is Pakistan funding the extra money needed for imports?

    Seriously, Romania makes better ships than Pakistan, Romania?

    We don't have free space in our ship yard all docks have ships in them being built.

    The contract was modified to higher weight class.
