First SIGMA frigate

Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding has handed over the first SIGMA 10514 Perusak Kawal Rudal (PKR) frigate to the Indonesian Ministry of Defence, on schedule and on budget. The ceremony took place at the PT PAL shipyard in Surabaya where the vessel was assembled. The Indonesian Ministry of Defence awarded the contract to Damen as main contractor for the construction of the first SIGMA 10514 PKR in December 2012. On receiving the ship, named the Raden Eddy Martadinata after one of the founders of the Indonesian Navy, the Ministry handed it on to the Navy.

The 345-foot/105-metre, 2,365 tonne PKR frigates are designed to undertake a wide range of missions in and around the waters of Indonesia, an archipelago nation made up of over 18,000 islands. Their primary mission is anti-air, anti-surface and anti-submarine warfare. However, they are also equipped for maritime security, search and rescue, and humanitarian support tasks.

The Raden Eddy Martadinatawas built using a collaborative modular process operating simultaneously at Damen Schelde Naval Shipyard (DSNS) in the Netherlands and PT PAL shipyard. The vessel is made up of six modules, and for the Raden Eddy Martadinata four of these were built at PT PAL while the other two modules – the power plant and the bridge & command center – were built and fully tested at DSNS before being shipped for final assembly at PT PAL.

This process brings many other benefits, including allowing Damen to build top quality vessels anywhere in the world. It also is the best way for Damen to fulfil its contractual obligation to Indonesia’s defence ministry to deliver an exceptionally extensive knowledge and technology transfer programme. This has the explicit aim of establishing a center of naval shipbuilding expertise at the PT PAL shipyard. By collaborating closely on the first two vessels the transfer of skills and upgrading of the yard is taking place smoothly and with a strong spirit of cooperation.

Construction of the second frigate using the same procedure is now well advanced with sea trials due May 2017, and delivery October 2017.

Sea Trials of first SIGMA 10514 PKR frigate for Indonesian navy

Sea trials of SIGMA

According to Ridzwan Rahmat, IHS Jane’s Defence Weekly correspondent, Indonesian state-owned shipbuilder PT PAL has begun sea trials of the country’s first SIGMA 10514 Perusak Kawal Rudal (PKR) guided-missile frigate on order for the Indonesian Navy.

The vessel, which will be the future KRI Raden Eddy Martadinata (331), began its sea trials in the week starting 11 July in waters off Ujung, Surabaya. The trials included a speed test, a crash stop test, and turning manoeuvres.

Raden Eddy Martadinata was launched by PT PAL on 18 January at the company’s shipyard in Surabaya. The frigate is one of two platforms being constructed jointly by Dutch shipbuilder Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding (DSNS) and PT PAL under a contract signed with the Indonesian Ministry of Defence in June 2012.

According to specifications provided by PT PAL, the PKR frigate has a standard displacement of approximately 2,400 tonnes, can accommodate a crew of 120, and it can hold a 10-tonne helicopter on its flight deck. The platform has a top speed of 28 knots/32 mph/52 km/h, a maximum range of 5,000 nautical miles/5,754 miles/9,260 km at 14 knots/16 mph/26 km/h, and a standard range of 4,000 nautical miles/4,603 miles/7,408 km at 18 knots/21 mph/33km/h.

Raden Eddy Martadinata ‘s weapons include an Oto Melara 76-mm main gun, launchers for MBDA MM40 Exocet Block II anti-ship missiles, six (two triple) 324-mm Eurotorp B515 torpedo launchers, the Rheinmetall Defence Millennium 35-mm close-in weapon system, and a 12-cell Vertical Launch System (VLS) that can deploy the MBDA VL-MICA surface-to-air missiles.

The weapon systems will be completed with a modified version of Thales’ TACTICOS Combat Management System (CMS).

The platform is on track for delivery to the TNI-AL in January 2017.
