2 UNITS OF ThE KNUD RASMUSSEN-CLASS wERE DELIVERED IN 2009 and a third unit were handed over to the navy in 2016
This low-cost OPV, with a medium-helicopter flight-deck and a high-speed insertion craft, is initially designed for the rough North Atlantic Sea and can easily be adopted for global operations. Its prime task is blue water border and EEZ control, including search and rescue and boarding operations. Furthermore the opv is well suited for rendering logistic and operational support to a minor maritime force.
The vessel is built with positions for two Standard Flex containers and prepared for two more. This capacity will enable the ship to participate in a fairly broad spectrum of coast guard missions.
