The Pakistan Navy has commissioned a Damen OPV 1900 patrol vessel in a ceremony held at Constanta Port, Romania.

The 2300t Corvette PNS Yarmook (F-271) is the first of two ships to be delivered under a contract signed with the Pakistani Ministry of Defence Production for two multipurpose OPVs in June 2017, following a tender process.

Damen will deliver the second vessel PNS Tabuk (Designate) in May this year. PNS Yarmook is capable of performing a variety of maritime operations and can transport both a helicopter and a UAV. The ship can launch two high speed RHIBs of 11.5m and 6.5m simultaneously and also has the capability to accommodate two TEUs for special mission based operations.

Damen constructed the PNS Yarmook at its yard in Galati. The yard has built nearly 40 vessels for the defence and security segment, including the last seven complex naval vessels for the Royal Netherlands Navy and the Stefan cel Mare offshore patrol vessel, the flagship of the Romanian Border Police.
