This highly advanced fishing vessel is to be built by Cemre shipyard in Turkey, who also hold a contracted option for a second vessel of the same type for Olympic Seafood.
The shipowner Stig Remøy, said: “This is a new and modern generation of trawler. The planning and design has been conducted under the headline Smarter, Greener and Safer. Low energy consumption and reduced emissions make the concept a perfect fit for our strategy of sustainable ocean harvesting. Rolls-Royce has played a central role in the development of our new ship.”
The vessel will be of type NVC 370 with a low resistant hull design which meets increased demands for fuel efficiency combined with good sea keeping.
Monrad Hide, Rolls-Royce, Vice President Sales, said: “It’s a pleasure working with ambitious shipping owners such as Stig Remøy and his team. We’ve designed a highly efficient trawler that will be equipped with a package of power and propulsion, electrical and automation systems that will deliver benefits to both the owner and the environment, as well as safety and good working conditions for the crew.”
