A freight transport barge under construction

 

 

CHANTIERS PIRIOU has just signed a contract for the construction of a freight transport barge with the Transport Maritime des Dépendances company (TMDD). This is one of PIRIOU's established customers, because this vessel will be the fourth built for the Guadeloupe ship owner.

The LCT barge, with a length of 50 m, can reach a speed of 10 knots with a deadweight of 350 tonnes. The 300m² loading surface enables up to 300 tonnes of freight or twelve 40-foot containers to be carried. The ship has a landing door in the bow.

This barge is part of TMDD's fleet consolidation programme. To be delivered at the end of the year, it will be used to ensure the freight transport link between the Guadeloupe islands.

This contract has been won thanks to an offer that perfectly satisfies the ship's operating requirements.
