BAP CARRASCO

BAP CARRASCO

Construcciones Navales Freire delivered in March 22 BAP Carrasco, a research vessel to the Navy of Peru, according to some, defined as "the most advanced in Latin America."

BAP Carrasco was building due to the need of the Peruvian government to have a ship that would allow it to improve its oceanographic scientific research operations in its maritime domains and, in particular, in Antarctica, where Peru has a scientific base.

BAP Carrasco is a polar research vessel. She has 95,3 meters l.o.a and a capacity for 50 crew and 60 scientists. It is intended to carry out research in the areas of hydrography, oceanography, maritime meteorology, nautical signage and magnetic prospecting on the Peruvian coast and in the Antarctic continent.

This ship also has storage warehouses, nursing with equipment for basic surgical and dental interventions, hydrographic survey laboratory, chemical laboratory for sample study, wet and dry laboratory, and oceanography and marine geology laboratory.
