From sea to stars, Lorima’s new wager

Lorima composite mast

As a composite mast specialist, Lorima (Lorient) is already well-known in the nautical sector as an exclusive supplier of the Imoca class (Vendée Globe Challenge) and has made a name for itself in luxury maxi yachts in partnership with Wally Shipyards in Monaco. The company is now going to manufacture for CNRS camera support arms for a 30 m-diameter parabola. This will be located in Spain and used for astronomical observations. Eight similar devices are expected under this project in partnership with the Rivoyre Ingénierie Design Office (Antibes), the Department of Morbihan and the Regional Council.
