Piriou will build eight longliners for Navimon with the first two vessels due for delivery by the end of 2018.

The 20.7m long vessels will be dedicated to tuna longline fishing in the Pacific Ocean’s New Caledonia economic exclusive zone and the remaining six vessels are scheduled for delivery up to the end of 2020.

Vincent Faujour, group general manager of Piriou, said: “Following our latest orders and deliveries in La Reunion island, this new contract allows us to maintain and increase our presence in the sector of artisanal and industrial fishing both in the French Overseas Territories and in France.”

The 340Kw diesel-run vessels have a storage capacity of 75m3 and are designed to ensure easier maintenance of operations, minimal operating expenses and to comply with security and environmental regulations.

Piriou built eight longliners for Navimon’s fleet between 1998 and 2000.

Mr Faujour commented: “We are very happy we have retained NAVIMON’s confidence as a long-time customer over nearly twenty years after their first vessels.”

Navimon is a subsidiary of the semi-public company SODIL.
