Vard Design Based Ireland’s P60 Class OPV Receives Commissioning

Irish Navy commissioned its fourth P60 class offshore patrol vessel (OPV) based on VARD 7 090 design.

LÉ George Bernard Shaw was constructed by the Babcock Appledore shipyard and is the sixth OPV built for the Irish Naval Services using a Vard Marine design.

The LÉ George Bernard Shaw will assert sovereignty over Irish territorial water, including fisheries protection and marine search and rescue, as well as join her sister ships in the humanitarian operations on behalf of the EU.

The LÉ George Bernard Shaw joined the LÉ Samuel Beckett, LÉ James Joyce and the LÉ William Butler Yeats as the final ship in the series.

By incorporating VARD 7 090 design, Vard Marine provided support to the Irish Naval Services in its shipbuilding program.
