OPV Capabilities for Diverse Maritime Operations
Based on a 20-year forecast from AMI International, the Asia Pacific OPV market is expected to generate 55 vessels through 2030, solidifying its status as the world’s fastest growing market for OPVs. This is hardly surprising, given the rapid expansion of maritime operations to include search and rescue, humanitarian aid, disaster relief and energy assets protection for both Navies and Coast Guards in the region.
The 4th Annual Offshore Patrol Vessels Asia Pacific 2014 conference will once again gather the most important stakeholders from the region’s Navies and Coast Guards, making it the only dedicated regional event to provide you with both the operational and acquisition overview of the OPV market and maritime security.
This year, in order to ensure a fruitful discussion, we have included an unprecedented Navy and Coast Guard acquisition break-out sessions, alongside maintenance and upgrading plans and cycles. In addition, hear first-hand operational experiences from flag and senior naval officers as they walk you through the challenges and strategies they have employed to successfully utilise OPVs to fulfil various maritime operations. See keynote briefings from the Royal Malaysian Navy, MMEA, Indonesian Navy, Royal Thai Navy, Philippines Coast Guard and Navy and many more.
