Rolls-Royce Commercial Marine has signed a contract to deliver ship design and an extensive range of equipment to a stern trawler to be built for Engenes Fiskeriselskap, based in Troms county, northern Norway.

The 70-metre long fishing vessel is of type NVC 370 and will be built by Gondan shipyard in Spain.

Shipowners Johannes Arne and Børge Arvesen, Engenes Fiskeriselskap, said: “This is a milestone for our company and carries on the proud traditions of trawl fishing in our part of Norway.”

The equipment to be delivered from Rolls-Royce includes a hybrid propulsion system consisting of the B33:45 diesel engine, Promas integrated propeller system and HSG drive system. Rolls-Royce will also deliver its latest electric winch technology, including trawl winches driven by permanent magnet motors.

Monrad Hide, vice president of sales at Rolls-Royce, said: “Engenes has truly made an investment for today and the future. Our designers are also impressed with the owner’s keen attention to the future working conditions of the crew, both related to comfort and safety.”

Engenes Fiskeriselskap’s new vessel is designed for bottom trawling as well as pelagic trawling. It will have a factory deck arrangement to handle and freeze both white fish and shrimps. Delivery is expected in early 2021.
