Piriou wins the prize with hydrogen hybrid propulsion CTV

Piriou is one of three winners of the Offshore Wind Innovation Challenge, managed by WPD and the Brittany maritime cluster -Pé´le Mer Bretagne Atlantique.

Following the call for proposals, launched at the end of 2019, PIRIOU decided to meet the challenge. Drawing on its experience in crew transfer to oil fields, having delivered more than a hundred crew transfer vessels, ranging from 18m to 55m, and the building of ten or so 27m and 22m CTVs for wind farms, Piriou has broadened its range with a new design Crew Transfer Vessel with hydrogen hybrid propulsion; an H2 low emission CTV

This project is part of the plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions as required by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and Piriou’s shipowner customers.

Vincent Faujour, PIRIOU Group C.E.O. said, ’We deeply thank WPD and the Maritime cluster for awarding this prize and commend the relevance of the project and the quality of the work done by the PIRIOU design office teams. This award allows us to benefit from the support and experience of WPD - a major player in offshore wind - to complete our project up to commercialisation’.

Involved in shipbuilding, repair, naval engineering and services since 1965, PIRIOU specializes in producing vessels up to 120m with high added value through a combination of high-performance engineering and a global network of industrial sites in Europe, Africa and Asia.

With over 500 ships built and delivered worldwide, PIRIOU provides bespoke solutions as well as a complete range of standardized or customized vessels.
