Philippine Navy eyes 100 hectares of Hanjin shipyard as base

 

The Philippine Navy(PN) through its chief  Vice Admiral Giovanni Carlo Bacordo announcd the plans to occupy 100 hectares of the cash-strapped shipbuilder Hanjin Heavy Industries and Construction (HHIC-Phil)'s facility in Subic Bay, Zambales for its own use.

"About 100 hectares in the North Yard. We will be housing the Philippine Fleet, Naval Sea Systems Command, Naval Installation Command and Amphibious Assault Battalion," answered Bacordo when asked by the Philippine News Agency(PNA) about the PN’s plan regarding the Subic Bay Hanjin facility.

The North Yard, Bacordo said, is located near HHIC-Phil's Graving Dock No. 5 (also known as dry  dry dock) and is used to construct, repair, and maintain ships.

The Philippine Navy has always preferred to occupy that part of the HHIC-Phil in Subic primarily because of its deep-sea harbor which can be used to accommodate its strategic sealift vessels and larger patrol ships.

HHIC-Phil's harbor has a minimum depth of about 10 meters which can accommodate the draft of the Tarlac-class landing docks and Del Pilar-class offshore patrol vessels and incoming frigates.

Draft refers to the vertical distance between the waterline and the bottom of the hull or keel.

Aside from having a deep-sea harbor, the facility is also protected by mountains and the nearby Grande Island.
