Marin Teknikk secures contracts for new longliners

Marin Teknikk secures contracts for new longliners The two new Marin Teknikk-designed longliners are scheduled for delivery in late 2019 and early 2020

Marin Teknikk has entered into contracts with Frøyanes AS for delivery of design and engineering packages for two new longliner vessels.

The vessels will have a length of 50 metres and a beam of 12.5 metres. Both vessels will fish in Norwegian waters and are especially designed with a higher ice-class rating, providing the ability to operate worldwide, including in arctic and Antarctic regions.

The MT1111 vessels will be built with conventional propulsion and comfortable accommodation for 18 persons. The vessels are designed according to the owners’ requirements and will be equipped with Mustad Magpacker autoline systems and a specially designed automatic line hauling system.

Catches will be processed in a fish processing factory for headed & gutted production and frozen in vertical plate freezers and tunnel freezer, and stored in large cargo holds.

The owner has contracted with Tersan Shipyard in Turkey to construct Vestkapp and Frøyanes Junior, with the first delivery scheduled for in December 2019 and the second in February 2020.

Marin Teknikk has designed a number of vessels for Ervik, which also recently celebrated its 30 year anniversary.

According to Marin Teknikk sales director Richard Gjerde, these two newbuilds represent vessels number nine and ten that owners Stig Ervik and Kjell Magne Ervik have built with MT-Design.

“We have worked closely with the Ervik Group for many years and we see this contract as an acceptance of the work we have done providing safe, functional, environmentally friendly and cost-effective fishing vessels tailor-made for Ervik’s various requirements, depending on where they are operating,” Richard Gjerde said, pointing out that this is a very pleasant contract to have secured in a demanding market.

“We feel that we have developed a very good relationship, and vessels with functional solutions which have been especially fitted to the different needs within the Ervik group of companies, added Marin Teknikk’s Thomas Edvard Gjerde.

“It’s very exiting for Marin Teknikk’s designers and engineers to work so closely with a shipowner who is so dedicated to the fishing, and exploiting the resources in such a viable and eco-friendly way, as Ervik Havfiske Group is doing.”
