BAE Systems announced it has signed a contract with Bangkok Dock to assist in the licensed construction of a second 90-meter Offshore Patrol Vessel for the Royal Thai Navy. Under the agreement, BAE Systems will provide engineering support and advice during construction of the vessel in Thailand.   Nigel Stewart, Commercial Director, BAE Systems’ Naval Ships business, said, “We’re looking forward to building and strengthening our relationship with Thailand’s shipbuilding industry. This contract to support delivery of a second Offshore Patrol Vessel to the Royal Thai Navy is a clear endorsement of our versatile Offshore Patrol Vessel design.”   "With three of these ships already in service in Brazil and a further three Offshore Patrol Vessels under construction for the U.K. Royal Navy, our design continues to attract significant interest internationally," Stewart said.   According to BAE Systems , the Offshore Patrol Vessel is a highly versatile ship, making it a cost-effective solution for many navies, with options for us to construct vessels at our facilities in Glasgow, Scotland, or for international customers to build ships under licensed design agreements using their own indigenous industries.   The Royal Thai Navy accepted its first 90 meter Offshore Patrol Vessel, HTMS KrabiI, from Bangkok Dock in 2013, which is a variant of the baseline BAE Systems design
