The Nodosa Shipyard in Galicia has delivered the first of two new trawlers for Cuxhaven fishing company Kutterfisch, which is capable of demersal and semi-pelagic trawling for a variety of species.
Janne-Kristin is designed by Nodosa with an inverted bow which provides excellent seakeeping qualities, especially in poor conditions, and the new trawler measures 35 metres overall with a 10 metre beam. The 350 cubic metre fishroom is optimised for tubs, and can hold approximately 292 x 460 litre tubs, each holding 250kg of fish, plus 228 standard boxes. The catch handling deck has been completed with a high level of automation to minimise heavy lifting and to maximise fish quality. The fishroom is fitted with a pair of 5000kg/day icemakers.
Accommodation is for a crew of 12 in six two-berth cabins.
Janne-Kristin has a 749kW ABC 6DZC main engine driving a controllable pitch 3300mm Schottel ducted propeller via a Reintjes LAF 873L gearbox with a 6.75:1 reduction. Electrical power is provided by a 763kVa Stamford shaft generator, as well as by a 584 kVa Yanmar genset, with a backup Yanmar harbour set.
Deck equipment is from Ibercisa, with an electrical winch system that starts with three 20-tonne trawl winches managed by a Scantrol system.
Ibercisa also supplied the four 16-tonne sweepline winches, two 12-tonne gilsons, a 7.3-tonne codend winch and one net drum with a 12-tonne pull.
