The cluster BRETAGNE POLE NAVAL was born in 2007 to create a major centre for quality shipbuilding, repair and conversion in Western France, joining forces, competences and skills in an advanced way to meet international ship owners and operators needs.
To provide global services for ship repairs and maintenance in harbour, overseas or in transit we are now a cluster of 74 companies, experts in all professions of naval industries. Experimented projects teams with a wide experience in the industry from ship repair to new building are supported by a workforce of 10 000 skilled and flexible people and contractor infrastructure dedicated to customer service.
In EUROPORT, some of those companies will meet you in the stand of Bretagne Pôle Naval: Bernard shipyard, specialist in pilot boats and rescue boats, Glehen shipyard has been building all types of ship since 1911. Ateliers NORMAND is a specialist in marine mechanical engineering. Segula Technologies Group is specialized in the fields of engineering, consulting and associated services. SPIE Ouest Centre shipbuilding and repair division driving project management for civilan and military shipbuilding. The Port of CONCARNEAU professionals association is regrouping 45 companies working in shipbuilding, repair and conversion.
At Europort, Segula Technologies will present STABILOAD INLAND WATERS, loading software which rationalize and make secure the container transportation on inland waterways. Glehen shipyard is currently building a trawler integrating new technologies to save energy. Ateliers Normand ensures complete assembly of the propulsion of this trawler with an energy saving propeller pump system.
The cluster will present a useful “Directory 2012 Shipbuilding and repair in French Brittany” which will allow ship managers, purchasers, operators and ship owners to identify Breton companies and their skills and expertise for shipbuilding, repair and conversion. This is completed by a specific brochure on French Brittany port facilities.
