Russian fishing company Luntos has chosen Ibercisa Deck Machinery’s electrical drive technology for its new freezer trawler, which will be operating in late 2021.
The new trawler is a VARD 8.02 design with an 80.40 metre length and a beam of 16.70 metres, and designed to provide maximum efficiency for fishing in the Bering Sea with a 170 tonne/day freezing capacity.
The electrically driven trawl winches with 385 kW motors and a nominal pull of 80 tonnes on the first layer are part of a wide range of equipment. Ibercisa will also supply gilson, codend, outhaul, auxiliary and anchor winches, as well as net drums and cranes.
The Luntos trawler is being at the Vard Vung Tau shipyard in Vietnam. The hull has been designed to optimise energy while steaming as well as during fishing operations, and all the machinery has been selected with both energy efficiency and quality of catch in mind.
Ibercisa has supplied equipment for more than 130 Russian fishing trawlers so far and expects to increase its position in this demanding market in the following years. According to the company, the reliability of Ibercisa’s popular MAI 600 series is continuously improved with the latest drive and control technologies for better efficiency and control to allow the best winch package that a commercial fishing vessel can get.
