The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) today received its sixth brand-new 44-meter Parola-class Multi-role Response Vessels (MRRV) built by Japan.
The said vessel, BRP Sindangan (MRRV-4407), skippered by Lieutenant Severino B. Destora, was welcomed at the Headquarters Coast Guard Ready Force Pier 13, Manila.
BRP Malabrigo (MRRV 4402), BRP Suluan (MRRV 4406), BRP Pampanga (SARV 003), and BRP Batangas (SARV 004) welcomed BRP Sindangan.
BRP Sindangan is part of the 10-order deal with Japan Marine United Corporation (JMUC) under PCG’s Maritime Safety Capability Improvement Project (MSCIP) Phase I. These vessels are named after the primary lighthouses in the country to denote their significance as one of the navigational aids in the maritime industry.
According to MSCIP, these vessels will act as (1) “primary rescue vessels within the PCG District’s areas of responsibility (AOR) when the extent of the disaster is beyond the capability of floating assets deployed within the area.”
The MRRVs will also (2) assist in controlling oil pollution and protection of the marine environment.
(3) These vessels will also enforce applicable maritime laws within the designated AOR, particularly relating to illegal fishing and sea patrol.
The vessels will provide (4) service as platform for rapid response during relief operations in the area, and (5) transport of personnel and logistical support.
