Second Dutch Navy Corvette Arrives in Indonesia

Jakarta The Indonesian navy has taken delivery of the second of four corvettes ordered from the Netherlands, the navy said here Jan. 30.
The 1,600 ton Sigma-class corvette, which was named the KRI Hasanuddin-366, arrived from its shipyard in the Netherlands at Jakarta's Tanjung Priok port Jan. 29 and will join the navy's Western Fleet as a patrol ship, a fleet spokesman said.
Four of the missile-equipped ships were ordered from the Schelde naval shipyard in the Netherlands in January 2004. The first ship arrived in August, while the third and fourth ships are expected to arrive between late 2008 and mid 2009, the spokesman said.
