The Tersan shipyard has floated off the hull of the new Skipteknisk-designed Jan Maria BX-792, under construction for P&P’s Bremerhaven subsidiary Nordbank Hochseefischerei GMBH.
The 88.10 metre, 18.30 metre breadth Jan Maria is designed for multi-rigging, able to tow up to three trawls, and is being outfitted with a filleting capacity for groundfish, plus a shrimp processing line on its factory deck, with highly automated freezing systems. There will also be fishmeal and fish oil production on board.
The fishroom is laid out for palletised storage, with a transport system to transfer production on wrapped pallets to the fishrooms.
Jan Maria is designed to operate with a crew of 45. The main engine is a 7000kW Wärtsilä.
This isn’t the first time that P&P have worked with Tersan, which has built several trawlers for companies within the group.
‘Mark and Kirkella which Tersan Shipyard built for Parlevliet Van der Plas Group are the best trawlers fishing in Northern Atlantic. We are sure Jan Maria will be an even better trawler owing to the latest technologies she has on board,’ said Parlevliet en van der Plas CEO Diek Parlevliet.
