THE 90M TUNA VESSEL'S HULL ARRIVES IN CONCARNEAU

14/11/2008

In 2007, three 90m tuna seiners were ordered from PIRIOU for the Reunionese fleet, SAPMER.  

These new generation tuna vessels feature the following innovations:  

- A diesel-electric propulsion system instead of the classical type, with the line shafting and propeller powered by two electric motors  

- Fish is to be stored on board in mixed storage in either a brine storage tank at    -20°C and/or in a refrigerated holding room at -40°C depending on the type of fish and its final destination  

 

The fitting out of this first unit will take place in Concarneau with a delivery planned for spring 2009.  

The other two units are to be built and delivered by PIRIOU Group’s Vietnamese branch, SOUTH EAST ASIAN SHIPYARD.
