The first of the series of new trawlers being built by Armon for fishing company Nueva Pescanova has sailed from Vigo for the southern hemisphere.

The 49.65 metre Lalandii 1 is the lead vessel in a series of three fresher stern trawlers that will deliver catches to Nueva Pescanova affiliate NovaMan in Namibia. The company is also building four freezer trawlers that will fish shrimp in Mozambique for Pescamar. The new vessels represent a €42.5 million investment, and the company claims this is the most important contract made in Spain by a company in the fishing sector.

Lalandii 1 is the most advanced trawler in the Nueva Pescanova fleet today, designed and built by Astilleros Armon, with the design team making use of virtual reality simulation as a key part of the development of the 1600kW fresher trawler.

Its onboard systems are designed for low emissions and fuel consumption, alongside efficient performance and higher levels of comfort for the 30 crew on board.

Catches are to go to NovaNam, and to ensure optimum quality, the processing deck and catch handling systems are designed to ensure that standards are high, with a by-catch and waste sorting area, a vacuum gutting system and a bubble fish washer.
