A 90M PURSE TUNA SEINER DELIVERED

07/07/2009

In July 2007, SAPMER ordered three new tuna purse seiners from PIRIOU.

Delivered in July, the first unit "FRANCHE TERRE" , built in France was a new

challenge for the shipyard.

 

The most important new features of the vessel are:

- the propulsion system - two electric engines, fed by four diesel generators

  which drive the propellers

- a new freezing system, to process fish: teh catch will be first plunged into a freezing bath, then transferred  to deep-freeze holds, where the temperature 

will be -40°C.
