Salt Ship Design to design new Adenia

The new Adenia will be built at Astilleros Zamakona to a design developed by Salt Ship Design

The Adenia Fishing Company in Shetland has ordered a new pelagic trawler based on a design from Norwegian naval architect Salt Ship Design.

The new Adenia will be built at the Astilleros Zamakona yard at San Sebastian in Spain, and is scheduled for delivery in June 2019.

The 69.90 metre pelagic vessel has a beam of 15.60 metres and a carrying capacity of more than 2000 cubic metres in ten RSW tanks. It replaces the current Adenia which was built in 2003 and extensively lengthened and refitted in 2015. It has been sold to Fosnavåg Havfiske in Norway and will be handed over next year.

“We are very pleased with a new contract so quickly after Salt in May this year signed its latest contract in fisheries. Salt Ship Design will deliver a complete design and engineering package for the new fishing vessel,” Egil Sandvik at Salt ship Design said.

“George Anderson and his crew have been working closely with Salt for several months to develop a vessel tailored for his quotas and the areas where the vessel will operate. This has resulted in a very effective, green and modern fishing vessel. ”

“This represents a very important contract, which adds to an already good order book. Salt has currently 14 vessel designs under construction at Norwegian and foreign shipyards. Unlike the current offshore market, fisheries and fish farming are doing very well and these segments represents an increasingly important market for Salt. ”
