Marin Teknikk has entered into contracts with Ervik Havfiske two new longliner vessels.

The first contract was signed with Frøyanes Junior AS, and the second one was signed with Frøyanes AS.

The vessels will have a length of 54m and a width of 13m. Both vessels will be fishing in the Southern Ocean and are especially designed with higher ice-class for operations in demanding oceans. The vessels will fish for Patagonian toothfish, a species of cod icefish found in cold waters.

The vessels will be built with conventional and hybrid propulsion, and feature accommodation for 28 people.

Marin Teknikk has designed a number of vessels for Ervik since 1995 and sales director Richard K. Gjerde says that he is very pleased to have been awarded this contract in a demanding market.

“We have been working close to Ervik for a number of years and feel that we have developed very good relationship, and vessels with functional solutions which have been especially fitted to the different needs within the Ervik group of companies”, he said.
