Seiner/trawlers of Skipskompetanse design for Lenin Kolkoz to be built at Yantar Shipyard
Norwegian propulsion system manufacturer, Scana Propulsion, has won new contracts for propulsion systems for five fishing vessels.
The first contract is with AO Shipyard Yantar located in Kaliningrad in Russia, for delivery of propulsion and maneuvering systems consisting of gearbox, cp-propellers, tunnel thruster- and rudder systems with control system for three vessels.
The ship owner is Lenin Kolkhoz located in Petropavlovsk in Russia. The vessels are of the Norwegian Skipskompetanse SK-3101R Design, and will be built at Yantar Shipyard, in Russia. All three shipsets will be delivered from Scana Propulsion’s plant in Norway in June 2017.
Scana Propulsion has also signed contracts with Pon Power in Norway for the delivery of gearboxes to two pelagic trawlers to be built at Karstensens Shipyard in Denmark. The delivery from Scana Propulsion comprises part of the total propulsion package consisting of MaK engine, Cat Propulsion propeller and Scana gearbox.
The two vessels are pelagic trawlers of Karstensens design, for ship owners Themis Fishing Co located in Tyborøn, and Astrid Fiskeri AS located in Skagen, both in Denmark. The deliveries for both vessels will take place in Q1 2017 from Scana Propulsion’s plant in Norway.
The total value of the contracts is NOK35m.
“Scana Propulsion has solid traditions for delivery of propulsion systems to the fishing fleet. A large number of fishing vessels with Scana Propulsion systems has been delivered to owners from UK, Iceland, Nordic countries and Russia during the years, either as new builds or sold as second hand”, says Inge Bøen, CEO of Scana Propulsion.
“Russia is an interesting market to Scana Propulsion, with a great potential for deliveries into renewals of the important fishing fleet. Our product range of propulsion systems fits very well with the high requirements for optimised system for fuel saving and efficient operation.”
