Great News: The PH Navy will have 2 brand new Landing Platform Dock ships built in Indonesia


Indonesia once again will make ships for the Philippine Navy.


PTPAL Indonesia received order from the Department of National Defense (DND) of the Philippines for two landing platform docks (LPDs).


The company and the Philippine government signed the sale and purchase contract in Manila on June 24.

"We are proud to be able to contribute to the defense of Asean countries. We also laud the trust of the Philippines for choosing PT PAL for the second time to provide maritime defense equipment," he said.

He said the company was urged to build two warships since the Philippine government was satisfied with the operation of two Strategic Sealift Vessel (SSV) landing docks that had been delivered by PT PAL several years ago.

"In addition to the excellent quality of the product, one of the Philippine delegates, who visited PT PAL Indonesia some time ago, also said that they were satisfied with the after-sales services provided by us,” he said.

The landing docks currently ordered by the Philippine government will be built in Surabaya.

The ships are planned to have a length of 123 meters (m) and a height of 21 m, weighing 7,200 tons, and with a cruising endurance of 30 days.
