New fishing vessels to be built in Norway for operators on opposite sides of the globe are getting Brunvoll propulsion systems.
Austral Fisheries’ new 70 metre longliner Austral Odyssey will soon be taking shape at Båtbygg in Måløy, and its owners have opted for a shaft line propeller with a two-speed gearbox with power take-off (PTO) and power take-in (PTI).
This vessel will also feature a tunnel thruster aft and retractable combi azimuth thruster forward. Brunvoll will also deliver frequency converters and starters. All the components will be tied together with Brunvoll’s own BruCon PTC propulsion and thruster control system.
Scottish company Sunbeam Fishing has also gone for a Brunvoll system for the new Sunbeam to be built at Myklebust. In addition to the main propulsion and tunnel thruster, Sunbeam’s owners have opted for a retractable azimuth combi thruster and the BruCon control system.
The main propulsion consists of a controllable pitch shaft line propeller and gearbox. For manoeuvring, a stern tunnel thruster and Brunvoll’s retractable azimuth combi thruster, combining azimuth and tunnel thruster functionalities into one product. The BruCon Propulsion and Thruster Control (PTC) System provides the brains behind the brawns, ensuring seamless operation under a variety of conditions.
