Freire Shipyard Delivers Peruvian Research Vessel

Freire Shipyard has delivered the DNV GL classed B.A.P. Carrasco, described as one of the world’s most advanced polar oceanographic research vessels.

The vessel is equipped with meteorological office, six laboratories for different research purposes, a helicopter pad and a bathymetry transducer system fitted on the flat bottom of the hull.

“This delivery is a testament to the skill of our great team at Freire and the excellent cooperation we have enjoyed with all of our project partners, but especially the Peruvian Navy and DNV GL,” says Guillermo Freire, director general at Freire Shipyard.

B.A.P. Carrasco will be operated by the Peruvian Navy. “Her operating profile will range from hydrographic, biological, geological as well as physiochemical surveys to providing support with humanitarian operations,” says Walter Flores Servat, head of the Department for Special Projects and Antarctic Matters at the Peruvian Navy.

“B.A.P. Carrasco represents the highest standards in research vessels. We are very pleased to be classing such an impressive newbuild and look forward to continuing this close cooperation with Freire and the Peruvian Navy in the future,” says Christian von Oldershausen, segment director Navy at DNV GL – Maritime.
