Short Description/Objective: 


The project concerns the purchase of ten (10) category C (RIB – RIGID INFLATABLE BOATS) vessels for the needs of the Port and Marine Police, aiming to strengthen its operational capabilities for surveillance and protection of the coastline, ports and territorial waters of the Republic of Cyprus. In addition, 20 members and 10 technicians of Port and Marine Police will be trained in the use, maintenance and handling of vessels and in the operation of all instruments, machinery, navigational and telecommunications devices.

The purpose of the project is to upgrade the existing naval fleet of the Port and Maritime Police, contributing to the achievement of the following objectives:

  1. More effective control and surveillance of sea borders, where there is an increased risk of illegal immigration.
  2. Improving early detection, identification and intervention at sea borders.
  3. Strengthening the operational capacity of the Port and Maritime Police in order to successfully accomplish their tasks.
  4. Conduct operations and patrols in the shortest time, but also with less fuel consumption.

Expected Benefits/Outcomes: 

With the supply and use of the ten (10) new category C vessels, the fleet of the Port and Maritime Police will be significantly upgraded, which will strengthen its operational capacity and contribute to the effective control of the maritime borders of the Republic of Cyprus.

In particular, maritime border detection, recognition and intervention will be improved, so that the control and surveillance of maritime borders, where there is an increased risk of illegal immigration, will be carried out in a faster time and with less fuel consumption.
