Cetus AS opts for ABC powerplant

Cetus AS opts for ABC powerplant The new Vikingbank for Cetus AS is being outfitted with an ABC 6DL36 main engine

Less than two years after last ordering a new fishing vessel from Fitjar Mek Verksted, Cetus AS went back to both Salt Ship Design and the same yard for the new pelagic vessel Vikingbank.

The 65 metre, 14 metre beam pelagic vessel is due to be delivered in the third quarter of 2020. The owners have worked with Salt’s designers to come up with an effective and environmentally sound fishing vessel, and are using a number of local suppliers to outfit the new Vikingbank.

These include Frydenbø Industri AS, which is delighted that Cetus have decided to opt for an Anglo Belgian Corporation main engine.

The ABC 6DL36 medium-speed engine, with a bore x stroke of 365 mm x 420 mm, will produce 3797kW at 720rpm. The low brake mean effective pressure (BMEP) of only 24 bar ensures a higher reliability and lifetime of the engine. The DL36 is compliant with IMO Tier III emission standards.

“ABC has a long history of providing efficient and reliable solutions for the fishing industry. Our 6DL36 engine is built with continuous operation, low fuel and lube oil consumption and long maintenance intervals in mind,” said Anglo Belgian Corporation area sales manager Jean-Pierre Props.

“It is a perfect fit for this highly demanding, heavy-duty market in terms of reliability, durability and low life-cycle cost. Frydenbø Industri AS and ABC are proud to be a part of this project and look forward to a constructive co-operation.”
