The second in a series of three trawlers for Norwegian fishing company Nergård has been delivered as Breidtind was delivered to its owners yesterday.
The 80.40 metre LOA, 16.70 metre breadth Breidtind is built to Vard’s 8 02 design and has been completed at Vard Brattvaag on a hull fabricated at Vard Braila in Romania.
The new trawler is outfitted to be able to tow either pelagic gear or multi-rig demersal gear for groundfish or shrimp with a package of four Seaonics permanent magnet trawl winches.
Breidtind’s outfitting is largely the same as the systems delivered for Senja, the first trawler in the series which has now been fishing successfully for more than a year, working with a catch handling system that holds fish in live tanks prior to processing. The catch handling layout ends with fishroom capacity for both chilled and frozen production, as well as ensilage tanks for processing of biomass ashore, providing opportunities to maximise resource utilisation and catch value.
The energy configuration on board includes Vard’s Electro’s SeaQ Energy Storage System. This battery system can be receive energy generated from the winches when shooting away. This functions with the SeaQ Power Management System for seamless integration with the hybrid diesel-electric propulsion system, which in turn minimises fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.
A sophisticated heat recovery system increases overall efficiency even further. With its ice-strengthened hull and propulsion system Breidtind is compliant with the stringent DNV-GL Silent F notation.
Accommodation is for a crew of up to 25 in meticulously designed crew spaces, with cabins, day and mess areas, and a gym, all of which are designed to have minimal noise levels.
