Offshore Patrol Vessels: Multifunctional vessels for safe territories

Lürssen Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPVs) are tailor-made platforms designed to be versatile and flexible to meet a wide range of operational demands in territorial waters and the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). They are the best suitable force enabler providing various capabilities:

 

  • Protecting critical infrastructure e.g. offshore installations
  • Guarding fishery and other natural resources
  • Search-and-rescue operations

 

Offering strong support

This multirole vessel family is ideal for the support of naval forces in joint and combined assignments. They can be specially equipped for deployments against smuggling and piracy with various high-speed rigid hull inflatable boats (RHIBs) for interception and boarding and assist helicopter operations with their fully qualified 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.
