Offshore Patrol Vessels

90m Ocean Patrol Vessel

90m Ocean Patrol Vessel

 

The Offshore Patrol Vessel is a highly versatile ship, designed to perform Economic Exclusion Zone management roles, including the provision of maritime security to coastal areas and effective disaster relief.

 

Our family of offshore patrol vessels comprises 80 metre and 90 metre versatile and affordable ships. Their adaptable design is well suited to the export market and can be altered according to individual customer needs, ensuring they can meet the operational requirements of navies around the world.

The 90 metre vessel is equipped with an air surveillance radar which can be used to detect low flying aircraft often used in smuggling operations. The ship’s rigid inflatable boat can be deployed swiftly from the davits for recovery and rescue operations and gives the ability to conduct sea boarding.

Its automated 30 mm small calibre gun system can engage fast inshore attack craft armed with short-range missiles, rockets, rocket-propelled grenades, machine guns or explosives, while 25 mm guns mounted port and stardboard provide secondary armament to the vessel.

Featuring a 20 metre long flight deck, the 90 metre ship can land and fuel a medium-sized helicopter, up to 7 tonnes. It also provides ample deck space to up to six 20ft ISO containers for mission stores or humanitarian aid, with a 16 tonne capacity crane enabling cargo to be easily discharged to a jetty.

Offering a high standard of accommodation, this ship has sleeping quarters, dining and recreational facilities for up to 70 crew, but is capable of operating with a lean crew of just 36.  It also incorporates additional cabin accommodation for up to 50 other personnel such as trainees, special forces, scientists or medical teams.
