French shipbuilder Piriou has recently delivered a 72-meter hydro-oceanographic and multi-missions vessel (BHO2M) ‘DAR AL BEIDA’ to the Moroccan Royal Navy.

This contract is the third the Moroccan Royal Navy awarded Piriou, following the contract for the building of a 50m Landing Craft Tank and the refit of offshore Patrol Vessel (OPV) 64 ‘Rais Bargach’.

The BHO2M is a last generation scientific vessel equipped with systems matching the topographic studies answering the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) standards. The vessel was designed from the Multi-Missions vessel (B2M) presently under construction in Concarneau for the French Navy.

Vincent Faujour, Piriou general manager, said: “We are very pleased and honoured to deliver this second vessel to the Moroccan Royal Navy. Thanks in particular to a close and crucial collaboration with the SHOM, we have designed a performing vessel with all the qualities required to become the new reference in terms of hydro-oceanographic vessel.”

“Following on from the expedition vessel YERSIN delivered in 2015 and the Polar Logistic Vessel L’Astrolabe’ delivered in 2017, PIRIOU thus confirms its ability to design and build very technical vessels.”

The BHO2M is able to carry out long lasting operations, mainly hydrographic and oceanographic missions such as the completion of topographic studies, data acquisition and process, scientific sampling and the related analyses.
