 The delivery of the first-in-class OPV (Offshore Patrol Vessel) “Musherib”, ordered to Fincantieri by the Qatari Ministry of Defense within the national naval acquisition program, took place at the Muggiano (La Spezia) shipyard.

The program is worth nearly 4 billion euros and envisages 2 OPVs, both scheduled for delivery in 2022, 4 corvettes over 100 meters long and one amphibious vessel (LPD - Landing Platform Dock).

Attending the event were H.E. Khalid bin Yousef Al-Sada, Ambassador of The State of Qatar to Italy, Staff Brigadier Abdulla Al Mazroey, Deputy Chief of the Qatar Navy and Commander of the Flottilla, Vice Admiral Giuseppe Abbamonte, Commanding Officer of the Italian Navy Logistics Command, and Marco Acca, Deputy General Manager Naval Vessel Division of Fincantieri.

Like its sister-ship “Sheraouh”, launched in June 2021, the OPV “Musherib”, has been designed in compliance with the RINAMIL for Fast Patrol Vessel (FPV) rules and is a flexible type of ship capable of performing several services, from surveillance to combat functions. It is about 63 meters long, 9.2 meters wide, with a maximum speed of 30 knots and it accommodates as many as 38 of crew members.

Last October Fincantieri has delivered “Al Zubarah”, the first-in-class of 4 corvettes of the same program for Qatar.
