Optimal hull shape - the NVC 349
The NVC 349
The new NVC 349 purse seiner from Rolls-Royce has been designed to have the optimal hull.
The low resistant hull design meets the increasing demand of high speed and fuel saving capabilities combined with good sea keeping characteristics.
Increased working efficiency combined with the importance of safe working conditions during purse seining operations are two of the benefits with this design. A new arrangement for tank/RSW system attends to the demand of increased capacity per hour as well as the importance of keeping the highest quality of the catch.
A two-speed main propulsion systems attends to the high focus on reduced fuel consumption as well as noise reduction both onboard the vessel and in the water. A well sized and light dayroom/mess room and single and two–person cabins provide great facilities for the 13 crew members.
The NVC 349 can be delivered with full systems ‘package’ from Rolls-Royce, including main engine, CP propeller, tunnel thrusters, steering gear, rudder, control- and automation systems, and winches.
