By The Maritime Executive 05-29-2018 05:24:00

GONDAN’s most recent contract came into force. It is an advanced stern trawler for Prestfjord AS, one of Norway's most important fishery and fish farms owners, and for whom the shipyard had already delivered another technologically advanced freezing stern trawler: Sunderøy.

This new vessel, designed by Rolls Royce Marine - in charge also of supplying the main equipment - will have a length of 77.3 m and a beam of 17 m. Built in steel with aluminum
superstructure, the stern trawler will operate in Arctic areas, in the Barents Sea and Svalbard waters. With an accommodation for 29 people, the freezing trawler will be operated for cod and prawns, as well as its processing. For this, it will have the most modern and automated fish processing equipment, including a meal plant, and a total hold capacity of 2250 m3. The vessel will be classified by the DNV and will be Ice class certified.

It will be the second vessel that GONDAN builds to Prestfjord AS, a very important shipowner in the world of fish farms and Norway's second largest fish producer.
