French Piriou Naval Services announced it has just completed an extensive refit of the Royal Moroccan Navy patrol vessel Rais Bargach.

Rais Bargach is a 65m ocean-going patrol vessel built in 1995 by STX France. It is one of five vessels in the class.

Piriou Naval Services, a repair and services branch of the Piriou group started working on the vessel in February 2016. According to Piriou, Rais Bargach had most of its side and bottom shell plating replaced, and most of its power and steering systems controlled, repaired or replaced.

Additionally, the vessel received a new coat of paint and modernized accommodation premises.

“Piriou, in accordance with its global service strategy, carries on with its partnership with the Royal Moroccan Navy,” Vincent Faujour, Piriou group CEO said.

“Following the delivery of the 50 m land craft tanker Sidi Ifni  in July 2016, we just delivered the Rais Bargach patrol vessel after major refit. It will be followed by the delivery of the 72m oceanographic multi-mission vessel presently under construction at Piriou shipyard in Concarneau.”
