The Cemre Shipyard in Turkey has launched 86 metre pelagic vessel Sunny Lady for fitting out.
This is the second LNG-powered pelagic vessel to be built at the yard, following Libas which was delivered earlier this year.
Built for Teige Rederi, Sunny Lady will have a Wärtsilä propulsion package, with a 5500kW 10V31DF main engine powering a 4200mm diameter propeller. The auxiliary engine is also a Wärtsilä, a 1665kW 9L20DF, plus there will be a 300kW PTO/1500kW1500PTI shaft generator as part of the energy system on board.
Sunny Lady will have a 350 cubic metre LNG capacity, as well as having a 1000kW/h battery. This enables peak shaving, regenerating energy and reducing noise and pollution when at the quayside.
The equipment package due to be installed on board Sunny Lady includes a Rapp trawl layout with 78-tonne trawl winches and 67-tonne net drums, plus a Triplex system for handling purse seine gear. The gear handling system is all-electric.
RSW capacity on board is in tanks providing 2850 cubic metres of storage, chilled by a Frionordica RSW system.
Designed by Salt Ship Design, which was also responsible for Libas, Sunny Lady is expected to be completed and delivered to its owners in 2022.
