The latest addition to the Norwegian fleet is one of the most technologically advanced fishing vessels afloat.
Seine netter/purse seiner Nord-Fugløy has been delivered by Larsnes Mek Verksted to Roger Nilsen’s fishing company Camaro Fiskeriselskap.
Built to a Skipskompetanse SK-3151 design, Nord-Fugløy’s configuration and choice of systems has been developed to fit the proposed operational profile, with a 1000kW/h battery pack and a Yanmar 6EY26 main engine.
In achieving optimal operating economy and minimal environmental footprint, the propulsion system includes a large propeller, a two-step gearbox, a variable speed generator and a ‘take me home’ propulsion option, plus the approximately 1mW battery package.
The design also anticipates climatic changes that vessels fishing in northern waters could face in the coming years, and is expected to meet future requirements and expectations for a minimal environmental footprint.
The 50.70-metre LOA, 12-metre beam Nord-Fugløy is designed to alternate seine netting and purse seining, and will has a variety of options for catch storage, including a 400 cubic metre capacity for live fish or bulk catches held in the 499 cubic metre RSW tanks, as well as options for chilled catches in ice or a 300 cubic metre refrigerated storage capacity.
