New Cetus to be built at Fitjar
Norwegian fishing company Cetus AS has ordered a new pelagic trawler with a 65m LOA and a beam of 14m.
The hull of the new trawler is scheduled to be delivered to Fitjar Mek Verksted in August 2018, where it wil be fitted out for delivery in March 2019. So far the full selection of equipment has not been made, and this is expected to be undertaken at Nor-Shipping this week.
The owners of the new Cetus have worked closely with the Salt Ship Design, which is also responsible for the designs of the Voyager now being built at Karstensens and the Gitte Henning under constriction at Kleven. The intention was to develop Cetus as an effective, modern and environmentally friendly vessel, and after the design phase and yard negotiations, the shipbuilding contract was effective on May 24th.
