Launch of Charal 2

For the launch of Charal 2, the 40th offshore race boat to be built by CDK Technologies, the yard is breaking new ground with a reference system for naming its new builds. Since its creation in 1984, the CDK Technologies yard has been constantly evolving and innovating, as well as coming up with novel solutions for all its clients. Today, CDK Technologies is proud to launch its 40th offshore race boat, Charal 2, christened CDK-I(F)-15-2022. Following the successful construction of Charal 1, Jérémie Beyou naturally placed his trust in the yard’s teams once again in his constant quest for performance and innovation.


Combining quality, safety and the environment

Interacting with the production teams and ensuring the compliance of the precise manufacturing processes and their possible evolution: such is the mission of Stephen Corcuff and Paul Rudelle, respectively a manager and QES engineer, who must guarantee that the quality and safety processes are applied right across the Lorient and Port-la-Forêt sites.

CDK Technologies builds an extension to its Port-la-Forêt site

Since its creation in 1984, CDK Technologies has continued to develop by notably investing in cutting-edge tools. As such, over recent years, the boatyard has fleshed out its global package considerably and is now able to step up to the plate in the provision of all the high-performance technical parts that make up a race boat. To adapt to this flourishing development and in a bid to provide its teams with the best possible working environment, CDK Technologies sets about extending its Port-la-Forêt site in the spring of 2021. From this Thursday 20 January 2022, the latter will be able to accommodate 50 employees on what is now a substantially larger site.
