French DGA Orders for Two Offshore Support and Assistance Vessels (BSAH)

French DGA (Defence Procurement Agency) just confirmed to the CHANTIERS PIRIOU-KERSHIP-DCNS pool, the order for two additional Offshore Support and Assistance Vessels (BSAH) under contract signed in August 2015. This order will bring to four the number of BSAHs to be provided. The first two vessels are under construction in Concarneau and their delivery is scheduled in 2018. The two newly ordered units are scheduled for delivery in 2019.

PIRIOU is in charge of the design and building of these vessels featuring high versatility and a 30 days’ autonomy. Co-contractor for the military studies, DCNS will provide in-board communication systems and will carry out In-Service Support (ISS) over up to five years. KERSHIP manages the contract and the industrial coordination.

Involved in several major programmes towards the French government, KERSHIP has thus become the first supplier of the French Navy for vessels dedicated at Law Enforcement at Sea.

Featuring a 70 metres length and a 2,600 tonnes full load displacement, the BSAHs are designed for the French Navy operations within the scope of armed forces and Law Enforcement at Sea.
