French shipbuilder OCEA today launched the first of twenty "OCEA FPB 98 MKI" patrol boats for the State Border Guard service of Ukraine at its shipyard in Les Sables d'Olonne.

=====================

In November 2019, an intergovernmental agreement between France and Ukraine has been signed to support the reinforcement of the maritime safety and security in Ukraine.
OCEA won the international consultation launched by the Ukrainian Ministry of Interior. The acquisition contract is for 20 patrol vessels of 32 m type OCEA FPB 98 MKI to ensure the country's sovereignty in the
Sea of Azov and the Black Sea.
The launching ceremony of the BG201, the first OCEA FPB 98 MKI of a fleet of twenty units, took place this Thursday, December 9th, 2021 at OCEA site in Les Sables d’Olonne.
His Excellency, Mr. Vadym OMELCHENKO, Ambassador of Ukraine in France, and representative of the French Government were present at the ceremony.

The OCEA FPB MKI are vessels designed by OCEA for Maritime Safety missions from one to two weeks within the Exclusive Economic Zone. Designed to operate as a real naval base at sea, these self-sufficient vessels display key design technologies. Thanks to a combination of high speed and endurance, the high level of equipment and comfort enable the monitoring of a large operational area and the coordination of
operations such as:
• Territorial and deep-sea surveillance operations
• Smuggling and illegal immigration control
• Control of vessels at sea
• Search & rescue
• Natural resources and blue economy protection
• Sovereignty

Each vessel will be equipped with a modern optoelectronic surveillance system and a RHIB for the reconnaissance groups of the border guards.
