Tersan Shipyard has signed a contract for a Skipsteknik-designed Arctic freezer trawler with Danish company, Ocean Prawns.
This new trawler will be the third project that Tersan shipyard has signed within the past two months.
“We are pleased and proud to have the chance to work together with Ocean Prawns for this significant project,” said Sakir Erdogan, business development and marketing manager of Tersan. “NB1107 will be the first project that we will deliver to Denmark. It will definitely be a great pleasure to cooperate with Ocean Prawns and Skipsteknisk in order to build such a high quality and sophisticated vessel in which all parties will implement their own valuable expertise.”
The 82.3m by 18m fishing vessel will be a technologically sophisticated factory trawler capable of triple trawling. With a capacity of 1,200 tonnes, the vessel is planned to have a shrimp plant and a turbot production factory.
The trawler will have accommodation for 35 and will be capable of efficient trawling in icy and Arctic waters. Delivery is planned for the last quarter of 2022.
