44M-MARITIME TRAINING SHIP ALMAK DELIVERY

27/09/2013

The Almak, Maritime Training Vessel (MTV) of 44 meters, was officially delivered today by Piriou group during a launching ceremony held in Concarneau, in the presence of the painter Anne Smith, patron of the vessel and official painter to the Marine.

 

The Almak is the result of close collaboration between DCI and Piriou who created the company navOcéan in July 2012 to build an MTV.

 

It took a year for the shipbuilding subsidiary PIRIOU Shipyards to build this ship since the first beam was laid in September 2012 in Concarneau (Finistere).

The Almak will be used primarily for academic high-level training organized by DCI in favor of foreign students and in conjunction with the Naval Academy. With a small crew of eight people, this ship can carry a dozen cadets. It will do 35-40 weeks of sailing per year.

 

The Almak can also be used to host student divers, as well as monitoring of mission zones and sea trials of field equipment.
