Brunvoll Volda has signed contracts with Stadyard in western Norway for delivery of propulsion systems for two fishing vessels. The equipment will be delivered in December 2017 and February 2018.

The combined purse seiners/seine netters are SK-3355 designs by Skipskompetanse, Lise Beate for Brødrene Bakken AS and Støttafjord for Oddvar Nes AS. These innovative new vessels are planned for delivery from Stadyard in December 2018 and March 2019. 

The sister vessels are designed with a 39.70 metre overall length, a 9.80m beam and a depth to the main deck of 3.75m. The design is for 80 cubic metres of fuel capacity and 425m3 of carrying capacity in RSW tanks chilled with CO2-based refrigeration from Kuldeteknisk, and fish handling systems provided by Cflow. Deck equipment systems will be from Rapp and MacGregor Triplex is supplying the cranes and purse seine handling gear.

Støttafjord and Lise Beate will each have accommodation for up to eleven persons in seven cabins.

The propulsion systems from Brunvoll Volda are single screw installations with PTO/PTI configurations, designed for hybrid propulsion, each driven by a Yanmar 6EY22AW diesel engine. The hybrid system are designed for operation modes of either mechanical, pure electric, take-me-home, or from battery storage. Side thrusters are run by frequency controlled engines and with fixed pitch propellers for efficient operation. 

The propulsion systems are designed for optimum operation and high flexibility, and the propeller blades are designed according to DnV-GL Silent F notation. This combination allows for increased catch, high fuel efficiency and low emissions at the same time, which in total reduces the cost per catch. The vessels are expected to become trend setters in this part of the coastal fishing fleet. 

Brunvoll Volda has a good order backlog of installations to fishing vessels where environmental concerns are of the highest importance.

“Optimised and tailor-made systems are what we do best, and we appreciate co-operating with owners, designers and shipyards that put high demands on us as suppliers,” said Brunvoll Volda managing director, Hallvard Pettersen.
