Det polska Nautavarvet i Gdynia som tidigare byggt 12 skrov för danska och norska fiskebåtsvarv ska själva börja bygga färdiga fiskebåtar:
This contract is another important step towards Nauta Newbuilding activities. So far the Yard has built mainly partly equipped fishing trawlers – said Krzysztof Juchniewicz, CEO of Nauta Shiprepair Yard. Now we have started the next stage which is construction of turn – key vessels, where we will not only build the steel hull but integrate all sophisticated equipment – added Mr. Juchniewicz.
The vessel will have over 87 m length and 18 m wide.
During last two years Nauta signed contracts for 12 partly outfitted purse seiner trawlers for Danish and Norwegian customers. By executing turn – key contracts we believe that the Yard will be placed in a higher level of know how necessary for these kind of contracts – said Ewa Jagielska, Director of Marketing in Newbuilding Departament.
Den första beställningen varvet fått är från Mewstead LLP i Fraserburgh i Skottland som beställt en 87 meter lång och 18 m bred pelagisk trålare, Konstruktionen av båten och en stor del av utrustningen på den står finska Wärtsilä för:
“Wärtsilä Ship Design has a reference list of more than 200 fishing vessels built, making us one of the world’s leading designers in this field. At the same time, we have the industry’s most comprehensive portfolio of products, systems and solutions, thus enabling us to optimise the design and the propulsion so as to achieve the greatest efficiency and lowest operating costs, as we have in this case,” says Aaron Bresnahan, Vice President, Sales, Wärtsilä Marine Solutions.
“This will be a very large and extremely modern fishing vessel and it is important that the design and the equipment driving the vessel also feature the very latest and best technologies. We are confident that the Wärtsilä design and equipment solutions fully meet our needs,” says M Michael Tait, owner of the vessel.
The full Wärtsilä scope of supply includes the ship design, a 12-cylinder Wärtsilä 32 main engine, two 8-cylinder Wärtsilä 20 auxiliary engines, a 2-speed gearbox, a controllable pitch propeller (CPP) running in a Wärtsilä HP nozzle, a complete stern tube including Wärtsilä Sternguard seals and Wärtsilä Sternsafe bearings.
