THE WORLD’S LEADING PATROL VESSEL CONFERENCE

Defining a future role for the OPV

The International Offshore Patrol Vessel conference was hosted by the Spanish Navy in 2019.

With the EU NAVFOR Headquarters moving from the UK to Rota Naval Base in Cadiz Spain, the conference provided a timely opportunity to engage with senior officers involved in this mission as well as see the expertise of the conference’s industrial partner, Cluster Maritimo Naval Cádiz. In advancing these discussions, OPV International 2019 acknowledged an increasingly complex maritime security environment; an environment which demands an updated assessment of the role of the OPV platform itself.

The need to understand potential roles of the OPV across the spectrum of conflict is growing in this increasingly complex environment. Should the OPV concept include adaptability and readiness to contribute to a high-intensity conflict scenario for example? Engaging in debate about where this type of platform sits within the broader constabulary and battle fleet is critical, if such concepts are to sustain their relevance and deliver robust capabilities for the future.

Join us in September 2019 as we work to maximise situational awareness, upgrade inherent baseline capability and deliver a continuous patrol function for the OPV.
