CHANTIERS PIRIOU, PIRIOU's shipbuilding subsidiary in Concarneau, France, has just delivered the "EL-DJEDID 2" to the Arzew Public Port Company.


This fourth vessel finishes the order placed in 2010 by GICEP (Groupement d’Intérêt Commun des Entreprises Portuaires) for four 72 tonne harbour tugs for Algeria.  

The first two vessels in the series, 32 metres in length and with 72 tonnes of bollard pull, were delivered in October 2011, the third in April 2012.

This delivery at the end of May, like the preceding deliveries, took place within the scheduled contractual time limits. This tug has joined the "EL-DJEDID 1" delivered previously in the port of Arzew.  


The contract also includes training of the crews to run these vessels.
