90M PURSE TUNA SEINER 'BERNICA' NAMING CEREMONY

06/11/2010

The 'Bernica' was christened on 6 November in Hô Chi Minh City in Vietnam. This 90m tuna boat is the third in the series ordered from PIRIOU by the Reunion shipowner SAPMER in 2007. The first unit in the programme was built in Concarneau. The following two units were built by SOUTH EAST ASIA SHIPYARD (SEAS), PIRIOU's subsidiary in Vietnam.  

Diesel-electric propulsion and dry freezing at -40°C are the main innovations in these new-generation tuna boats, designed for the production of tuna with high added value.  

The 'Bernica' will soon join the 'Franche Terre' and the 'Manapany' which are already in operation.
