On the occasion of the maritime event La Mer XXL, NEOLINE announces that it has chosen the offer
of the Loire-based company Neopolia S.A.S. for the construction of its first two innovative sailing main
propulsion vessels. This decision follows the international call for tenders launched in 2018 by NEOLINE
to some fifteen shipyards. The construction of the first ship is scheduled to start at the end of 2019, with a
launch scheduled for the end of 2021.
With the support of key players such as Groupe Renault, Manitou Group and Groupe Beneteau,
which have validated the logistical and economic relevance of the new service for the region’s manufacturers, NEOLINE is taking another major step
forward with the signing of a Letter of Order Intent with Neopolia S.A.S.
Built by Neopolia, NEOLINE’s ships are intended to become real international ambassadors for the
territory’s companies, and to embody France’s ability to achieve its energy transition in the field of
maritime transport. This signature is also an important success for the company Neopolia S.A.S, which has succeeded to
federate its members to meet the specifications of a demanding project that offers new perspectives for
the Loire-based naval industry.
