Armón Vigo launches the "Ponta Macalonga" for Nueva Pescanova
The ship will work for the branch of Mozambique and is the fifth built by the naval of the city
The ship yard Armón Vigo has launched the Ponta Macalonga, the fifth ship of the macroorder of New Pescanova that has assumed the Asturian group alone and that is constructed entirely in the shipyard of Vigo.
As explained by the CEO of the fishing company, Ignacio Gonzalez, the ship is the second that Armón boots destined to the Mozambique fishing ground, after the Ponta Matirre. "This goes ahead," he announced through his Twitter. The boat, 32 meters long, will work in the Mozambique fishing grounds for the Pescamar subsidiary next to Ponta Matirre, which is already fishing in the area.
This is one of the ships whose manufacture was entirely taken over by the Vigo Navy, since at first Armón was going to distribute it with its factories in Burela. Some units were subcontracted to companies such as Industrias Navales A Xunqueira (INAX) or Talleres Gestido. The total order value is 42.5 million euros.
