NAVIMON CONFIRMS ORDER FOR 3 NEW LONGLINERS
NAVIMON confirms order for 3 new longliners to renew its fleet
In October 2017, NAVIMON -a subsidiary of SEM SODIL and the first shipowner in New Caledonia- ordered from PIRIOU a series of eight 20.7 metre longliners dedicated to tuna longline fishing in the New Caledonia Economic Exclusive Zone.
Built by PIRIOU, the first two vessels were delivered and reached their homeport by the end of 2018. The order for three sister ships was signed at the same time and these are due for delivery by the end of the year.
With this new firm order for three vessels, NAVIMON renews trust towards PIRIOU which built the eight longliners of its fleet between 1998 and 2000 as well as the first two units of this new generation which have been exploited for nearly one year and perfectly answer the shipowner’s requirements. These new units are designed to improve crew comfort and security, make maintenance operations easier, optimize expenses and answer the issues related to security and environment compliance.
