'Most fuel-efficient propulsion' for new trawler

Norwegian fishing company Ramoen enters into an agreement for the construction of a new stern trawler.





Updated on 21 Oct 2014 13:13 GMT

The Armon shipyard in Gijón, Spain, has entered into a contract to build a new stern trawler for the Norwegian fishing company Ramoen. The vessel is to be a Rolls-Royce design, type NVC 372, and the agreed contract value is GBP 6.5 million to Rolls-Royce.

The vessel will carry out traditional fishing operations for whitefish and shrimps, and is to be equipped for both bottom and pelagic trawl.

In a statement, John Knudsen, Rolls-Royce President Offshore, said: "This will be the second design of type NVC to Ramoen and we are very happy for this new contract and the longstanding cooperation with this innovative owner."

To achieve an optimal operating economy and environment-friendly profile, Rolls-Royce said the vessel is to have an optimized hybrid propulsion system configuration based on operational studies of existing vessels.

Rolls-Royce has been contracted to supply the design, and the vessel's main equipment, incorporating many of the newest products from Rolls-Royce, such as Hybrid Shaft Generator system (HSG).

Rolls-Royce said: "This 75 meter long vessel will be taken to a new level of flexibility, redundancy and efficiency in all operational modes. The new Bergen B33:45 diesel engine will together with Promas integrated rudder and propeller system provide the most fuel-efficient propulsion available in the market. Low pressure hydraulic driven trawl winches will also be delivered."

Rolls-Royce said that fuel economy, environmental considerations, comfort, safety and performance at sea underpin the vessel design.

The trawler is to have a 1,200-cubic-metre (cbm) cargo hold capacity, 450 cbm meal hold, with a freezing capacity of 90 tonnes per 24 hours and the holds are to be constructed for palletized cargo.
