Kership unveils new OPVs

Since 2013, Piriou and DCNS have been partners in the Kership joint venture set up to market a variety of vessels for maritime security and naval missions. The range includes offshore patrol vessels (OPVs), from 45 to 90 metres in length, suitable for blue water and long range operations. All feature a panoramic (360°) bridge and a Polaris combat management system developed by DCNS to manage the ship’s sensors, display the tactical situation and provide communications resources for missions as part of a multinational force.
