' Not ready for sea'

Data from the Coast Guard Action Center show that the agency has 59 vessels and five aircraft, 40 percent of which are either “Not Ready For Sea" or grounded as of July 1.

. . .

The United States Coast Guard says a "Not Ready for Sea" evaluation means Coast Guard inspectors identified mechanical, structural, or safety deficiencies serious enough to render the boat not fully capable of performing search and rescue missions.

“We don’t even have an all-weather vessel na kahit bumabagyo pwedeng gamitin," said Coast Guard spokesperson Lt. Commander Armand Balilo. An average of 19 tropical cyclones pass the Philippine area of responsibility every year.

Of the 14 vessels, six are “not ready for sea" (NRFS) including the search and rescue vessels BRP (Barko ng Republika ng Pilipinas) Edsa II and BRP San Juan; auxiliary escorts BRP Corregidor, BRP Kalinga and BRP Limasawa; and patrol gunboat BRP Palawan.

SAR Vessel for Philipines Launched
http://www.marinetalk.com/articles-marine-companies/art/SAR-Vessel-for-Philipines-Launched-TEN008124637IN.html



Tenix Shipbuilding WA recently launched its second Search and Rescue vessel built for the Philippine Coast Guard. The 56m vessel is named ‘Don Emilio’. A sister ship, San Juan, delivered in June this year, is already in operation with the Philippine Coast Guard. She has proven to be a capable and reliable vessel.

Designed for rapid response in a maritime emergency, SAR vessels are equipped for recovery of survivors, co-ordination of rescue operations and support of a helicopter (for either airborne search and rescue missions or emergency evacuation). They will also assist with environmental protection and police the maritime environment. Their hulls are constructed of steel and the superstructure of aluminium. Accommodation is provided for a permanent crew of 38, with space for 300 survivors.

Entirely designed by Tenix using a single chine hull to assist planing at high speed, the vessels provide a stable platform in adverse weather. Powered by two Caterpillar 3612 diesel engines driving twin controllable pitch propellers, they are designed to maintain a maximum continuous speed of more than 24.5 knots with a range of 2000 nautical miles at 15 knots.


It was originally named after Erap's father and pennant number was Erap's birthday (April 19).  It was renamed to EDSA II after the change in administration

PN according to Manokski:
"something gray with a side number on it that floats"
PAF according to Ramon J. Farolan:
"we are now basically a helicopter fleet"

Residents in path of ‘Ramil’ have 4 days to prepare
By RIO ROSE RIBAYA
October 19, 2009, 5:54pm

Residents of Northern Luzon have four more days to prepare for Typhoon "Ramil," which is expected to directly hit Batanes, Cagayan, Kalinga, and Ilocos Norte on Thursday, the weather bureau said.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration said it expects Ramil to move westward starting Tuesday, influenced by a ridge of high pressure area (HPA) near Hong Kong and Taiwan which intensified Monday.

PAGASA director Nathaniel Cruz said the ridge of HPA will continue to force Ramil westward until Wednesday, which would allow people to buy time and seek higher ground before the typhoon makes landfall on Thursday.

"The eye of the typhoon may not hit land but the typhoon's circulation will affect provinces in the North including Batanes, Cagayan, Kalinga, Apayao, Ifugao, Quirino, Isabela, Nueva Vizcaya, Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, La Union and Pangasinan," Cruz said.

Last Saturday, Ramil started to slither across the Philippine Sea near Aurora province, moving at a very slow northward pace until it was 1,110 kilometers east of Aparri, Cagayan as of 10 a.m. on Monday.

The typhoon maintained maximum sustained winds of 175 kph near the center and gustiness of 210 kph while moving at 3 to 4 kph as of 10 a.m. Monday.

Cruz said Ramil could start moving southwest on Wednesday, which would expose the Ilocos and Cordillera regions to the eye of the typhoon should the HPA near Hong Kong continue to intensify.

"So let's pray that the HPA will not intensify further so that Typhoon Ramil will remain moving westward while passing above Northern Luzon," he said.

The weather bureau official said Luzon and the Visayas provinces will experience scattered rains and thunderstorms due to the prevailing Inter-tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) near Palawan.

He clarified that the initial effects of the typhoon such as storm surges, gusty winds and intense rains will not be felt until Wednesday evening.

Ramil has been expected to be at about 900 kilometers east northeast of Aparri on Tuesday morning, and about 510 kilometers east northeast of the same town in Cagayan by Wednesday morning.

The Philippine Coast Guard has placed 20 of its rescue teams on full alert in anticipation of the typhoon onslaught.

Coast Guard Admiral Wilfredo Tamayo said two teams have already been dispatched to Northern Luzon to augment rescue units in the area which was recently devastated by typhoon “Pepeng”. He said eight teams are on standby at the Coast Guard Headquarters in Manila and Taguig.

The Coast Guard vessel BRP EDSA 2 under the command of Commodore Rodolfo Villajuan Monday started to sail towards La Union to facilitate the rescue units and serve as command post for other PCG rescue teams. The PCG Air Group was also placed on standby alert in case air evacuation is required.

Tamayo also requested shipping companies based in Manila for the availability of their rubber boats and life rafts in case of massive flooding. (With a report from John Carlo Cahinhinan)

Rescuers find Navy chopper; 2 pilots still missing
By JOHN CARLO CAHINHINAN
August 18, 2010, 1:49pm

http://www.mb.com.ph/articles/272922/illfated-navy-chopper-located-still-no-signs-missing-pilots

Rescue divers from the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) and Philippine Navy (PN), together with some personnel from the United States Navy, have already located ill-fated Navy helicopter that crashed near Santa Cruz Islands in Zamboanga City.

However, they failed to recover the two missing pilots.

Commodore Rodolfo Isorena, PCG-Zamboanga District Commander, said the combined team of rescue divers late Tuesday afternoon already discovered the location of the PN-Helo Chopper (PNH411) however, they still failed to find the missing pilots Lt. Junior Grade Tristan Joseph Corpuz and Lt. Junior-Grade Gerald Tamayo.

Lt. JG Corpuz was the son of Coast Guard Commodore Danilo Corpuz.

Isorena said the US troops participating in the Joint Special Operations Task Force-Philippines (JSOFTP) together with PCG and PN personnel along Caldera Bay also decided to temporarily halt the joint exercise and decided to join the search and rescue (SAR) efforts to help their Navy counterpart.

Lt. Commander Armand Balilo, PCG Public Information Officer, said they have received orders from the Coast Guard Commandant himself, Admiral Wilfredo Tamayo “to assist their brothers in the Navy at all cause.”

Balilo said that eight teams of Special Operations Group (SOG) divers onboard SAR vessel BRP-Edsa Dos which is also currently participating in JSOFTP exercises were dispatched along Greater and Lesser Santa Cruz Islands to search for the missing pilots. He added that the PCG also lends some of its rubber boats to the Navy to speed up the SAR operations.

BRP-Edsa Dos also served as the oxygen refilling station for the Coast Guard, RP-Navy and US Navy rescue divers.

Cargo Vessel Suffers Damage After Running Aground Off Batangas
By JOHN CARLO M. CAHINHINAN
September 20, 2010, 3:23pm

http://www.mb.com.ph/articles/278014/cargo-vessel-suffers-damage-after-running-aground-off-batangas

A cargo vessel carrying 1,119 crates of plywood ran aground off Calatagan in Batangas, the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) said Monday.

Lieutenant Commander Armando Balilo, PCG public information officer, said the Coast Guard Action Center (CGAC) in Manila alerted one of its standby dispatch team after the 1,454 gross-ton M/V Hummer-H1 ran aground off Catalagan.

Ship captain Marcelino Medado sought the assistance of the PCG.

Balilo said personnel from the Coast Guard Detachment-Calatagan arrived around 8 a.m. Monday to assess the situation of the vessel.

“Based on the initial investigation by the PCG-Batangas, the vessel actually has a crack approximately around two meters in diameter on its starboard (right side) bow and four feet crack on its port (left) bow,” Balilo said.

No oil slick was seen in waters around the grounded vessel.

Around 9:30 a.m. Monday, the vessel’s sister ship M/V Chrysler arrived in the area to render necessary assistance to the partially damaged cargo ship, the PCG said.

 The PCG Marine Environmental Protection Command (MEPCOM) personnel also arrived in the area to monitor the incident for possible oil leak.

Lieutenant Commander Weniel Azcuna, CGAC director, issued a notice to mariners about the incident and advised the BRP Edsao-Dos search and rescue on possible dispatch to the area.

Coast Guard joins search for crew of Panamanian vessel off Batanes

http://www.gmanews.tv/story/205792/coast-guard-joins-search-for-crew-of-panamanian-vessel-off-batanes

The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) has joined the search for crewmen of a Panamanian cargo vessel that sank off Batanes on Wednesday.

The state-run Philippines News Agency (PNA) said the Panamanian cargo vessel, “Masco Diamond," was heading toward Indonesia from China and had 25 Chinese aboard.

PCG spokesman Cmdr. Armando Balilo said contact was lost with the cargo vessel at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, with its last location northeast of Itbayat, Batanes.

The PCG has approved the request of the 11th Regional Japan Coast Guard Operations Center to allow the entry of a Japanese P-3C Orion plane into the Philippine area of responsibility for the aerial search.

The PCG sent vessels BRP EDSA-Dos (SARV-002) and BRP-Nueva Vizcaya (SARV-3502) to conduct SAR operations upon receiving the the alert message.

Its Aviation Group (CGAC) also deployed one of its twin engine islander plane (PCG-251) to conduct regular aerial survey in the waters of Batanes. – VVP, GMANews.TV

Ship sinks; 10 Chinese lost at sea
By JOHN CARLO M. CAHINHINAN

MANILA, Philippines — A massive search-and-rescue operation has been launched at sea off Batanes Islands to account for 10 Chinese seafarers who went missing after their cargo vessel sank the other night, authorities reported on Saturday.

Apart from the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG), rescuers from Japan and Taiwan had joined the search after the “M/V Hong Wei,” carrying 24 Chinese crew members, sank near Itbayat, one of the islands in Batanes.

Lieutenant Commander Armando Balilo, PCG Public Affairs chief and deputy chief of staff for Community Relations, said the search was launched as soon as the Coast Guard Action Center in Manila received the report that the Panamanian-flagged cargo vessel sank 120 nautical miles southwest of Itbayat.

The call came through from Junior Officer First-Class (Captain/Lieutenant Senior-Grade) Norio Uechi of the Japan Coast Guard (JCG) late Friday evening.

“Lt. Uechi said that the vessel left China around 3:40 p.m. of Friday and supposedly scheduled to deliver shipment somewhere here in the Southeast Asian region, but the vessel lost its communication with their headquarters in China by late evening. The vessel’s last reported position is Latitude 20 degrees north; Longitude 119 east”, Balilo said.

Upon receiving the report, PCG Commandant Admiral Wilfredo Tamayo immediately deployed their 56-meter SAR vessel BRP EDSA-Dos (SARV-002) by 11:30 p.m of Friday and expected to arrive in the said vicinity in the next 34 to 37 hours.

Commodore Aaron Reconquista, wing commander of the Coast Guard Aviation Group (CGAC) also dispatched one of its twin engine islander plane (PCG-251) by around 8 a.m. on Saturday to conduct regular aerial reconnaissance operation in the waters of Batanes.

The CGAC also dispatched one of its twin engine islander plane (PCG-251) to conduct regular aerial survey in the waters of Batanes.

The Taipei Rescue Coordinating Center has also a Delta C-130 aircraft together with two patrol vessels to help in the ongoing operations for the missing Chinese sailors.

Tamayo said that by 9 a.m. on Saturday, the Taiwan Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) in Manila informed them that 14 of the 24 Chinese sailors were already rescued by the JCG.

Chief Superintendent Agrimero Cruz, Jr., spokesman of the Philippine National Police (PNP), said passing vessel MV Shun Tong was able to rescue 12 of the crew of the ill-fated vessel while the Taiwan Coast Guard was able to save two Chinese.

“Ten others are still missing,” said Cruz.
