Initially, six Long Range Patrol Ships with each ship containing 2 High Speed Intervention Vessels will be delivered - the ships will be manned by Somali personnel and have the capacity to stay at sea [patrolling] for 30 days at a time. The first of the patrol ships and its high-speed intervention vessels will be delivered in early 2014. The ships will be provided/part-built by an unspecified Dutch company and a domestic ship maintenance and repair yard will be built inside Somalia.
- An interconnected Radar system will set up along the entire coast; in addition Monitoring Stations and a co-ordination centre will be created.
- Part of the agreement is that 3,000 Somali personnel will be trained who will play an integral part in the set-up and the operations, all tasks and resonsibilities will gradually be handed over to them from the trainers and facilitators.
- The value contract is said to be in the 100's of millions of dollars and for a duration of 5-7 years, by which the deliverables specified in the contract specification will have to be completed. The deliverables include: the creation of the [Navy] organisational structure; the training of the 3,000 Somali personell; the setting up of the radar and monitoring network; delivery and operationalising of the ships; and the construction of the ship repair and maintenance yard.
