The Gondan Shipyard has delivered its second new trawler for Norwegian company Prestfjord AS with the handover of the Kongsberg Maritime-designed Sunderøy.
According to the yard, the Covid-19 pandemic presented a series of new challenges for both the yard and the owner.
“In close collaboration and thanks to careful co-ordination and implementation of all necessary measures, in accordance with current Government regulations, we have been able to fulfil all of our commitments, despite all the difficulties we have faced,” a spokesperson for Gondan said.
Factory freezer trawler Sunderøy is one of the most advanced vessels of its kind, with a highly sophisticated processing and freezing deck, with a 2250 cubic metre fishroom and capacity to produce fishmeal and fish oil on board. Sunderøy has a 77.30 metre overall length and a 17 metre beam, and is designed to operate in the Barents Sea and Svalbard areas of the Arctic, with capacity for both whitefish and shrimp. It has accommodation for a crew of up to 29.
Sunderøy has sophisticated Rolls-Royce propulsion, with a 7200kW, 12-cylinder Bergen B33:45 main engine, plus 1920kW Bergen C25:33L6A and 505kW auxiliary sets. It also has a Hybrid Shaft Generator (PTO, 2950kW / PTI, 2000kW) , as well as a 350kW battery energy storage capacity. Rolls-Royce also supplied the AC electrical winch system.
