DFFU christens two trawlers in Cuxhaven
Last weekend two new trawlers that represent an âŹ80 million investment by Samherjiâs German subsidiary DFFU were christened at the quayside in Cuxhaven, the first new fishing vessels for the company since 1990.
The traditional bottle of champagne was smashed against the plates of the new Cuxhaven NC-100 by DFFU managing director Haraldur GrĂ©tarssonâs wife Harpa ĂgĂșstsdĂłttir, while Berlin NC-105 was given the same treatment by Annegret Aeikens, who is married to Hermann Onko Aeikens, parliamentary state secretary with responsibility for fisheries and agriculture.
The two 81.20 metre, Rolls-Royce-designed factory trawlers were built at the Kleven Myklebust yard in Norway and both have already started fishing before they docked in Cuxhaven for the christening ceremony.
âThis is a proud day,â said Samherjiâs managing director Thorsteinn MĂĄr Baldvinsson. âWe have christened two magnificent trawlers that demonstrate that we have faith in the future. We have been in this business since 1996 and these are our first newbuildings for Germany,â he said and commented that their first years in Germany after acquiring DFFU were not easy.
âThings have gone well in the last few years and we believe that this is an important step and the start of a new chapter in our fishing activities in Germany.â
DFFU managing director Haraldur GrĂ©tarsson said that these new trawlers are an important step in increasing the companyâs capacity to compete, and not least in attracting competent young people to look for interesting careers at sea.
âThese are well-paid jobs and we offer the best possible working conditions. It has been highly rewarding to see how many of the people of Cuxhaven showed these new vessels an interest and came to celebrate their arrival with us,â he said.
