Damen Shipyards has been selected to assist the Mexican Navy in building a new Damen Stan Patrol 4207 vessel, with a contract for the work announced on 1 April.

The contract will see the sixth patrol vessel of the Tenochtitlan class built in the Mexican Navy Yard ASTIMAR 1 in Tampico on the Gulf of Mexico.

The contract includes a license, material package and technical assistance for Damen, as well as crew training in the Netherlands.

The Stan Patrol 4207 vessel is designed to perform patrol duties in harbours, coastal waters and offshore.

The first two vessels of the class, ARM Tenochtitlan (PC-331) and ARM Teotihuacan (PC-332), started construction in 2011 and were delivered to the Mexican Navy in mid-2012. Vessels three, four and five were ordered in May 2013, August 2013 and November 2013 respectively.
