Rolls-Royce to deliver ship design and equipment for one advanced stern trawler
Norwegian shipbuilder Kleven has announced a contract for a state-of-the-art fishing vessel to be designed and equipped by Rolls-Royce. The vessel which is a stern trawler has been ordered by French fishing company Compagnie Des Peches Saint-Malo S.A. & SAS Comptoir Des Peches D’Europe Du Nord – Euronor.
The vessel owner has decided on a highly innovative vessel concept of Rolls-Royce NVC 374 WP design. Among its features is an onboard factory for the production of fish filets, and has a storage capacity of 1,400m3. There’s also a 550m3 fishmeal storage hold.
The ICE 1A* classed vessel will be 80m long, and equipped with a wide range of Rolls-Royce equipment, including main engine, auxiliary engines, thruster, automation, hydraulic winches and the fuel efficient Wave Piercing design. Operational efficiency, low emissions, crew comfort, safety and excellent seakeeping capabilities have been the main considerations in the development of the ship design and equipment package.
The vessel is scheduled to be delivered from the yard in September 2017.
