Launch of the second of three patrol vessels ordered by Senegal
The launch of the ‘NIANI’, the second offshore patrol vessel destined for the Senegalese Navy, took place yesterday afternoon in Concarneau (29). This stage marks a significant step in the progress of the programme for the supply of three offshore patrol vessels.
In parallel, the first unit is in the outfitting phase before the start of its sea trials, and outfitting is also ongoing on the third vessel in preparation for launch.
This contract was signed in November 2019 by Senegal’s Ministry of Armed Forces and PIRIOU group.
