First frigate delivered to Indonesian Navy

6th February 2017 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The first of two frigates being built by Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding for the Indonesian Navy has been handed over to the Indonesian Ministry of Defence, Damen announced on 2 February.

Damen is building the two SIGMA 10514 PKR frigates for the navy under a contract signed in December 2012. The first vessel has been named Raden Eddy Martadinata.

The 105-metre, 2365t PKR frigates are designed for a range of missions including anti-air, anti-surface and anti-submarine warfare. They are also equipped for maritime security, search and rescue, and humanitarian support tasks. 

The Raden Eddy Martadinata was built using a collaborative modular process operating simultaneously at Damen Schelde Naval Shipyard in the Netherlands and PT PAL shipyard. The vessel is made up of six modules, and for the Raden Eddy Martadinata four of these were built at PT PAL while the other two modules – the power plant and the bridge and command centre - were built and fully tested at Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding before being shipped for final assembly at PT PAL. 

Construction of the second frigate using the same procedure is now well advanced with sea trials due May 2017, and delivery October 2017.
