Piriou wins the prize with hydrogen hybrid propulsion CTV
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’.
