We are delighted to share the exciting news of Izmir Shipyard's latest accomplishment - the delivery of new patrol boats for the Albanian Police Organization. This significant milestone represents a proud moment for both Izmir Shipyard and our country. Join us as we dive into the details of this remarkable project and the exceptional boats that have been created.
A Groundbreaking Collaboration:
The collaboration between Izmir Shipyard and the International Center for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) has paved the way for the development of the patrol and inspection boats, marking the first-ever maritime fleet for the Albanian Police Organization. With its headquarters in Vienna and a presence in over 90 countries, ICMPD is renowned for its expertise in migration policy development. This collaboration underscores our commitment to enhancing migration policies and fostering effective partnerships on a global scale.
Unparalleled Design and Construction:
Under the European Union-funded Effective Management of Europe's Green and Blue Borders project, Izmir Shipyard has demonstrated its exceptional capabilities by crafting unique and high-performing vessels. The project involved the design and production of one 15-meter aluminum boat (IZ 1500 AL) and four 11-meter fiberglass boats (IZ 1100 RC), all equipped with state-of-the-art technology. Despite the challenges, Izmir Shipyard completed the construction of these boats within a remarkable timeframe of just nine months, showcasing our commitment to excellence and efficiency.
A Journey to Remember:
On April 10, 2022, amidst the vibrant Police Week activities, Izmir Shipyard bid farewell to the newly crafted patrol boats with a heartfelt ceremony at Izmir Cumhuriyet Meydanı (Republic Square). These boats embarked on a journey to Durres Port in Albania, where they will serve as an integral part of the Albanian Police Organization's maritime fleet. This momentous occasion marks the beginning of a new era for the organization, enhancing their capabilities in ensuring security and safety in the Albanian waters.
