first_imgBy Dialogo February 17, 2012 On February 15, the keel was laid for the patrol vessel Miramar, at a ceremony presided over by the general director for materials of the Brazilian Navy, Admiral Arthur Pires Ramos, at the Estaleiro Ilha S.A. (EISA) shipyard in Rio de Janeiro. This is the third patrol vessel in a series of five vessels from this shipyard under contract with the Naval Engineering Directorate. The Miramar is part of a series of 27 ships to be built in the immediate future, with the following characteristics: – Length overall: 54.20 m; – Moulded breadth: 8.00 m; – Maximum draft: 2.48 m; – Full-load displacement: 500 t; – Maximum sustained speed: 21 knots; – Crew: 35 + extra accommodations for 8; and – Weaponry: one 40-mm cannon and two 20-mm machine guns The first two ships in the class, ordered from the INACE shipyard, the patrol vessels Macaé and Macau, have already been incorporated into the Brazilian Navy and will be based in the cities of Rio de Janeiro and Natal, respectively. These vessels are designed to patrol Brazilian territorial waters, performing a variety of tasks, including, in conflict situations, conducting surveillance and defense of the coast, shoreline maritime areas, and oil platforms at sea and contributing to port defense; and in peacetime, promoting monitoring aimed at securing the resources of Brazil’s territorial waters, contiguous zone, and exclusive economic zone, repressing illicit activities (illegal fishing, smuggling, drug trafficking, and pollution of the maritime environment), contributing to the security of shoreline facilities and maritime platforms against acts of sabotage, and conducting search-and-rescue operations in Brazil’s area of responsibility. We can appreciate it and say that the Brazilian naval engineering and Brazil Navy are very proud of the compact and modern construction characteristics of NPa Miramar Project which are very appropriate for the needs of the Country. We hope the Project in the future will be evaluated favorably by The American and Africa navies.last_img read more
