Philippine Shipbuilding Industry
« on: April 26, 2006, 01:08:01 AM »

There is a demand for the following type of vessels:

Roll-On/Roll-Off vessels. Ninety-six are needed for the 48 identified routes along the Ro-Ro Terminal System. The Roll-On/Roll-Off Terminal System is a component of the Development Bank of the Philippines' Sustainable Logistics Development Program (RRTS-SLDP). The SLDP is a collaboration between government and the private sector to bring about cost-effective ways of moving goods and people.

Vessels of various types. At least 120 are needed. The vessels are part of the Philippine Navy's 15-year acquisition program.

Multi-role response vessels. Around 311, ranging in size from 15 to 125 meters and other types of vessels. The vessels will be acquired by the Philippine Coast Guard over a 15-year period.

If Tsuneishi Shipbuilding in Cebu can build 50,000 tonnes bulk carriers, is it possible for them to build warships or even just Search and Rescue ship for the Coast Guard?

Check these made is Cebu ships.

Hanjin of South Kore is establishing a shipbuilding facility here. This could easily put the Philippines near the top of the biggest shipbuilding nations.

This is good news.

Did you know that Hanjin also builds navy ships, check the link below.

If they will create a shipbuilding facility in Subic, then maybe they can build our navy ships there. Transfer of technology, and we can provide the site and manpower.

Philippine Shipbuilding and Repair MARINA Plan 2007-2010

3. Insure greater participation of local shipyards in the construction of new ships
and maintenance/upgrading of existing ships needed by the Philippine Navy
(PN) and other government agencies/entities.
Agency Responsible: PN, other government agencies (i.e., PNOC, NFA)
Target/Outputs/ - Meetings/dialogues with local shipyards conducted, and
Timelines: promotional campaigns undertaken on PN Modernization
Program from 2007 onwards
Investment Requirements: Funds to be sourced from the AFP Modernization
Fund and GAA.
Another area providing opportunities for more ships to be locally constructed or
repaired is through the Philippine Navy Modernization Program. As mandated by
R.A. No. 7898, otherwise known as the AFP Modernization Law, the Philippine Navy
has initially embarked on modest vessel acquisition and upgrade projects in order to
fulfill its mandated missions and objectives.
Although the mode of procurement under the PN Modernization Program is through
open and competitive public bidding, pursuant to R.A. No. 9184, greater participation by
our local shipyards would lead to the further realization of the objective of having more
ships locally constructed or repaired. As such, local shipyards would need to be
continuously aware and informed on the PN ships needed to be acquired or repaired,
hence the action plan of holding meetings/dialogues with them by the Philippine Navy
and the conduct of promotional campaigns relative to the opportunities being provided
under the PN Modernization Program.
Among the PN ships scheduled for acquisition/upgrading where local shipyards
could participate are;

● Landing Craft Utility (LCU) acquisition---- already realized
Fast Craft Ferry - acquisition------------------ status? any PN Program as of to date?
● Riverine Assault Craft (RAC) - acquisition--  those PA's project qualified?
● Rigid Hull Inflatable Boats (RHIB) - acquisition--- we've got incoming..any idea where will it be made?
● Rigid Raider Craft (RRC) - acquisition--------------status? any PN Program as of to date?
● PKM-Fast Attack upgrade---------------------already realized
● Patrol ships upgrade--------------------------already realized
