Stormhav completed at Stadyard

A new Seacon-designed netter/longliner for owners in the north of Norway is about to be delivered by Stadyard, and a number of companies in and around Måløy have been involved in completing the new Stormhav.

Built for Stormhav AS, a fishing company based at Sørøya in Finnmark, the new Stormhav has a 27.99 metre overall length with a 9.50 metre beam. This is the eighth newbuild in a series of vessels designed by Seacon and built at Stadyard.

Stormhav has a 206 cubic metre refrigerated fishroom, a 90 cubic metre fuel capacity and accommodation for a crew of up to 14.

Stormhav has now completed sea trials and is ready to sail northwards to start fishing.

Completed on a hull constructed at a Polish shipyard, Stormhav’s delivery to the yard at Raudeberg was delayed by some months.

Stadyard is one of the members of the Måløy Maritime Group, a cluster of companies around Måløy, and thirteen of the fifteen MMG members were involved in completing Stormhav.

Båtbygg supplied parts and equipment to the newbuild, while Ulvesund Elektro supplied the complete electrical installation of the vessel, alarm system and overall control system. The wheelhouse electronic systems are supplied and installed by Ocean Electronics.

Isovent delivered and installed ventilation, technical isolation of engine room, exhaust and refrigeration systems, and the main engine is supplied by Verlo. The catch handling systems have been fitted by Westmek. Safety equipment is from Selstad, while MH Service supplies bunkers and oil, and Nordfjord Havn provided port services.

The longline system is from Fiskevegn.

Stormhav’s processing deck includes two Loppa heading and gutting machines.

‘Working with Stormhav AS has been a milestone for us at Havfront, because Stormhav was the first vessel to order a machine from us when we started the development six years ago,’ said Havfront’s managing director Marius Strommen.

‘We want to thank Stormhav for what they did when we started the development of Loppa and that they are investing in two new machines from Havfront. We see this as a great vote of confidence.’
