Two more foreign shipbuilders have joined the Philippine Navy’s (PN) P18-billion frigate program, said PN technical working group head Commodore Roland Mercado.These firms are Garden Reach Shipbuilders & Engineers Ltd. of India and STX France SA, Mercado said. They were allowed to join in the bidding after their motions for reconsideration were considered by the Department of National Defense (DND) Special Bidding Awards Committee. These companies now join Navantia Sepi (RTR Ventures) of Spain and South Korean firms STX Offshore & Shipbuilding, Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co. Ltd. and Hyundai Heavy Industries Inc., which passed the first stage of the bidding. Design assessments of the frigate proponents started last February.
