Second of 4 Damen Stan Patrol Vessels, ‘Oriku’, delivered  from  Pashaliman Shipyard in Vlorë (Albania) for Albanian Coast Guard

The Stan patrol boats were ordered by the Albanian Ministry of Defence. Their main purpose is to execute patrol duties and Search and Rescue missions in  territorial waters. The project included extensive knowledge transfer and the reconstruction of a naval shipyard.

The first ship of the Stan Patrol 4207 project was built in the Netherlands and delivered to the Albanian Coast Guard in August 2008.

The project also included the thorough reconstruction of the Vlorë Naval Shipyard and the building of a new assembly hall, in which vessels as large as 60 meters can be constructed. Both projects were handled by Damen Services. Under the Damen Technical Cooperation (DTC) concept the complete, prefabricated material packages for the construction hall and the patrol vessel were sent to Albania

The whole operation has been carried out under the late ORET program of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Its objective was to support sustainable investment in infrastructural projects in developing countries.


To come up to expectations for full NATO membership the Albanian Government works on the transformation and revitalisation of its armed forces. Monitoring and protecting the territorial waters is one of the ambitious tasks set.
