During the SAT, primarily the platform as well as parts of the sensor weapons and communications suite will be extensively tested. The tests will be performed by representatives of the yard in close cooperation with representatives of the Royal Netherlands Navy and the main subcontractors.

The Holland class Offshore Patrol Vessels are new patrol boats under construction for the Royal Netherlands Navy. They are designed to fulfil patrol and intervention tasks against lightly armed opponents, such as pirates and smugglers.

A contract between the Royal Dutch Navy and Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding in Vlissingen, the Netherlands was signed in 2007 for the construction of four vessels at a total cost of €511,1m.
