Harsonic supplies equipment for icebreaker French navy (L’Astrolabe)

In June 2015, the Ministry of Overseas France awarded the construction of a 50 million euro polar logistics vessel to the Chantiers Piriou from Concarneau.
The icebreaker L’Astrolabe will be owned and operated by the French Southern and Antarctic Lands (TAAF) administration, the French Polar Institute Paul-Émile Victor (IPEV) and the French Navy.

A very important issue was the ecological impact and sustainability. Therefore Harsonic has supplied the equipment to avoid fouling on the hull and the propellers.
To avoid bacterial contamination Harsonic was also implemented in the water- and gasoiltanks.
