Offshore patrol vessels – multifunctional vessels to keep territories safe

Lürssen offshore patrol vessels (OPVs) are tailor-made platforms designed to be versatile and flexible to undertake a wide range of missions in territorial waters and the exclusive economic zone (EEZ). They are the best suitable force enabler providing the following capabilities:

 

  • protecting critical infrastructure e.g. offshore installations
  • guarding fishery and other natural resources
  • and search-and-rescue operations

 

Offering strong support

This multirole vessel is ideal for supporting naval forces in joint and combined operations. The OPV can be specially equipped with high-speed rigid-hulled inflatable boats (RHIBs) for deployment against pirates and smugglers both for interception and boarding. The vessels are also able to assist with helicopter operations due to the on-board helicopter landing deck.

 

Efficient and upgradable

Our efficient OPV design with modern hull forms and propulsion can be adapted and enhanced with additional functionalities as operational needs change.
