Offshore Patrol Vessel commissioned

A Damen OPV 1900, the 2300 tonnes Corvette PNS 'Yarmook' has been commissioned in a ceremony at Constanta Port, Romania.

Vice Admiral Muhammad Fayyaz Gilani HI (M), Vice Chief of the Naval Staff attended the event as Chief Guest. The ceremony was also attended by teams from Ministry of Defense Production Rawalpindi, Chief Naval Overseer (Romania) and senior management of Damen Shipyards Group. Damen signed the contract with the Ministry of Defence Production for two multipurpose OPVs for the Pakistan Navy on 30th June, 2017, following a tender process.

Damen will deliver the Second vessel PNS 'Tabuk’ (Designate) in May this year. PNS ‘Yarmook’ is capable of performing a variety of maritime operations and can transport both a helicopter and a UAV. The ship can launch two high speed RHIBs of 11.5 metres and 6.5 metres simultaneously and is capable of accommodating two TEUs for mission-based operations.

Damen constructed the PNS ‘Yarmook’ at its yard in Galati. The yard has built nearly 40 vessels for the defence and security segment, including the last seven complex naval vessels for the Royal Netherlands Navy and the Stefan cel Mare offshore patrol vessel, the flagship of the Romanian Border Police.

Processing. Please wait.
