Polar Logistic Vessel new project starting right now at Seatech

The 72-metre Polar Logistics Vessel is a logistics ship and patrol icebreaker that can accommodate up to 60 persons on board, carry 1,200 tonnes of cargo and fit one helicopter. It will be jointly owned and operated by the French Southern and Antarctic Lands (Terres australes et antarctiques françaises, TAAF) administration, the French Polar Institute (Institut Polaire Francais Paul-Émile Victor, IPEV) and the French Navy. The new Polar Logistics Vessel will be built by PIRIOU shipyard in Concarneau, France, and delivered in early summer 2017.
