Built for Whitehills owners and delivered last month, Enterprise III BF-1 is the latest trawler to be built at the Vestværft yard in Hvide Sande.
Enterprise III has been delivered to James Lovie and his partners, and is a Vestværftet design, outfitted and completed at the yard in Hvide Sande on a hull fabricated in Poland. The new trawler headed for Fraserburgh to start its fishing career and to make its first landings.
Accommodation on board is for up to eleven, and is fitted out to an exceptionally high standard.
Enterprise III has a 28.67 metre overall length with a 10 metre moulded breadth and is powered by a 736kW ABC 6DZ main engine driving a variable pitch, four-bladed 3400mm propeller inside a high-efficiency nozzle, via a Hundested CPG 280-2 reduction gear fitted with two PTOs for hydraulic pumps.
Hundested also supplied the 250hp hydraulic SFT 5 bow thruster. The engine control system with its three stations is from Lyngaa. Additional power is supplied by a pair of Caterpillar C 9.3 gensets delivering 244kVa and a single 40kVa Baudouin harbour set.
The package of hydraulic trawl hardware is supplied by MacGregor and installed by AS:Scan, who also provided the MT–3500 steering gear with two EL-hydraulic pump units to operate a triple rudder.
The deck is laid out with three trawl winches controlled by a Scantrol autotrawl, three pairs of sweepline winches at the head of the long trawl desk with drums large enough to spool ground gear, three net drums over the trawl lanes, pairs of bagging, outhaul and codend winches, and a forward mooring winch. There are three trawl blocks aft that can be tracked into the required position. The deck crane is a 2t/10m unit.
Enterprise III’s wheelhouse has a pair of Vejvad Hansen skipper’s chair facing the array of electronics supplied by Woodsons. The electrics on board have been fitted by Vest-EL in Hvide Sande.
The catch handling deck on board has been outfitted by VCU, with a full complement of conveyors and washers, a KM-Fish gutting machine and VCU’s Pack-At-Sea catch management system.
Lemvig company LMK supplied the fishroom chiller installation, cooling for the fish hopper and the pair of 4500kg/24h Buus ice machines.
