    STEEL CUTTING CEREMONY OF OFFSHORE PATROL VESSEL-II FOR PAKISTAN NAVY HELD AT ROMANIA

    Steel Cutting Ceremony of 2nd Offshore Patrol Vessel (OPV-II) being constructed for Pakistan Navy was held at M/s DAMEN Shipyard Galati, Romania. His Excellency Mr Safdar Hayat, Ambassador of Pakistan to Romania, graced the occasion as Chief Guest. The ceremony was also attended by Rear Admiral Faisal Rasul Lodhi, Deputy Chief of the Naval Staff (Operations) along with officials from the Ministry of Defence Production and Naval Headquarters. Senior management of M/s DAMEN Shipyards, Gorinchem (Netherlands) and Galati (Romania) were also present during the ceremony.

    Contract for 02 state of the art, multi-purpose Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPV-I & II) for Pakistan Navy, was signed between Ministry of Defence Production and M/s DAMEN, Netherlands in 2017. OPVs will significantly enhance the combat capabilities and capacity for peace and war time operations of Pakistan Navy.

    Speaking on the occasion, the Chief Guest highlighted that 14th August is a historic and important day for Pakistan as we are celebrating 71st Independence Day. On this auspicious day, steel cutting ceremony of 2nd OPV has added more colour to national celebrations. The Ambassador further highlighted that after induction, both OPVs will further augment the initiative of PN for independently conducting Regional Maritime Security Patrol of Indian Ocean Region for protection of national and international shipping against threats of Maritime terrorism, piracy, narcotics, arms smuggling and human trafficking etc.

    why janab


    its good news we are getting something

    [​IMG]

    Design
    1. EXCELLENT POWER/SPEED RATIOS

      - Much less power installed than in typical corvettes
      - Hull design is more economical at patrol speed

    2. FACILITIES FOR LARGE HELICOPTER
      - Hangar, flight deck and service space for single helicopter up to 11-tonnes
      - Lights and visual aids for day and night operations
      - Avcat re-and de-fuelling system - HIFR optional

    3. ECONOMIC PROPULSION PACKAGE
      - Four diesel engines with two controllable pitch propellers Running only two diesels at patrol speed reduces fuel consumption and extends range
      - Alternative propulsion packages are available such as twin diesels or diesel-electric
