One of the country’s remaining World II vintage corvettes, the BRP Pangasinan (PS-31), will undergo dry-docking and other related repairs to ensure that she will remain mission-capable as the Philippine Navy (PN) awaits the arrival and delivery of its new ships.
Budget for the project is placed at PHP 36,127,000, the PN Bids and Awards Secretariat said in a bid bulletin posted at the Philippine Government Electronic Procurement System.
Winning bidder must be able to deliver the services and parts within 90 days. Pre-bid conference is scheduled for March 22, 9 a.m. at the Office of the PN Bids and Awards Committee Naval Station Jose Francisco, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City.
BRP Pangasinan is one of the six Miguel Malvar-class corvettes in PN service. Originally, there were 11 but four of these were retired from service and one was grounded.
The former and her remaining sister ships were formerly the US Navy’s Admirable-class minesweepers which was constructed and commissioned during the World War II.
They were transferred to the PN during the 1970s as part of the US Military Assistance Program.
