Ship Building/Repair

Chantier Naval de l'Océan Indien (CNOI)


Chantier Naval de l'Océan Indien was created at the turn of the century, as a joint venture between the IBL Group and a well-known French ship buiding and ship repair specialist, Les Chantiers Piriou, based at Concarneau in Britanny. It started its operations in Mauritius in 2001. IBL Group shareholding in the shipyard now stands at 60%.

CNOI shipyard, the largest and most modern in the region, is situated at Port Louis - in a strategic position on the fast-growing traffic lane between East Asia and Southern Africa/the Atlantic and not far from the main fishing grounds in the Indian Ocean and Southern/Antarctic zone.

Resources & Activities

The shipyard focuses on the repair, drydocking, refurbishment and conversion of all types of vessels up to 120 metre long - more specifically fishing vessels, harbour craft, naval vessels, patrol ships and various types of cargo vessels.

It has also been active on the shipbuilding front, with a well-diversified portfolio of realizations, up to 60 metres long, which includes trawlers, coasters, tug boats, specialised barges, patrol boats, skiffs and a passenger ferry.

CNOI's facilities, which cover some 60 000 m2 in area, include a 130 metre X 27 metre drydock, a ship elevator for vessels weighing up to 1 400 tonnes, over 350 metres of repair/outfitting quays, lifting & hauling facilities including a 100 tonne capacity mobile crane, a 50 metre X 20 metre covered building berth.

There are also several mechanical and electrical workshops attending to steelwork, welding, piping, hydraulic, surface treatment, painting, air conditioning, refrigeration, cabling, woodwork and other specialised items.

The shipyard has rapidly established itself as a very useful supporting facility for ships plying in the region and is now well recognised for its state-of-the-art engineering, best-in-class practices and dedicated & talented 300-strong workforce.
