A new longliner designed by Marin Teknikk for Norwegian fishing company Ervik Havkiske has been floated off at the Tersan yard in Turkey, where it is the yard’s 100th newbuild.
The 60.50 metre LOA, 13 metre breadth Argos Helena is scheduled for completion in the third quarter of this year and will operate on toothfish in the South Atlantic. The MT1112 L design vessel has a moonpool and will be fitted out with a factory deck for processing catches.
Argos Helena has a Yanmar 6EY26W main engine and accommodation for a crew of up to 30.
This is the sixth Marin Teknikk-designed newbuild from the yard for Ervik Havfiske, in a series that goes back to the delivery of Frøyanes in 2010, and following Frøyanes Junior and Vestkapp which were delivered last year.
This is also the eleventh time that Marin Teknikk has designed for Ervik Havfiske over an association that goes back 25 years.
‘We are very proud to launch the sixth vessel we are building for our partners, Ervik Havfiske,’ said Tersan’s general manager Mehmet Gazioğlu, commenting that the company was the first in the Nordic region to order a completed fishing vessel, enabling Tersan to enter the demanding Scandinavian market for high-tech fishing vessels.
