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 fisheries 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.
