90M TUNA PURSE SEINER LAUNCHING

27/02/2009

PIRIOU has launched the 'Franche Terre' .

This 90m tuna seiner is the first of a series of three sisterships ordered by SAPMER and will be the largest vessel ever delivered by PIRIOU.

 

The main innovations in these new generation tuna seiners are as follows:

- mixed onboard fish storage in brine tanks at -20°C and/or in a dry hold at -40°C depending on the type and final destination of the product.

- the diesel electric propulsion system which is unconventional, since the shaftline and propeller are driven by two electric motors.

The fitting out will now continue and the delivery is scheduled before summer.
