Ghenova to Design New Civil Guard Vessel

February 25, 2020 (Google Translation) – GHENOVA will carry out the design of the Oceanic Civil Guard vessel that will replace the veteran “Río Miño” with the Maritime Service (SEMAR).

Of the five offers submitted, GHENOVA’s has been the one that has finally obtained the highest score to carry out this project.

GHENOVA will develop the conceptual design of the new ocean patrol of the Civil Guard. It is about the design of a ship of about 85 meters in length, with navigation capacity in seas and adverse weather conditions (all weather). Its functionality is intended to carry out patrolling tasks in the territorial sea, contiguous zone and international waters, for the suppression of smuggling, control of illegal immigration and monitoring of compliance with national and international laws at sea. Likewise, it may be used for rescue, pollution control and humanitarian assistance functions, so it will have adequate spaces to carry out these tasks.

Among its characteristics are a total length of between 75 and 85 meters , a beam of between 12.5 and 14 meters and a draft of between 3 and 4.5 meters. Its design will be of monocoque type, with bow launched with or without bulb, something that will be defined during the elaboration phase of the conceptual project, and stern of displacement stamp.

It will have a landing platform of 12 × 12 meters for helicopters, which will allow the resupply operations of the VERTREP type with security for a medium-sized helicopter.

It will also have a multipurpose platform of 20 meters in length by 12 beams to provisionally locate shipwrecked. This could be located at the bow or stern, coinciding with the area for containers or the flight deck.
