Parkol newbuild orders signed at Skipper show
Parkol Marine Engineering signed order for two new fishing vessels at the Skipper International Exhibition in Aberdeen. The Whitby yard already has a healthy orderbook, but two orders were signed at the companyâ€™s stand at the exhibition today.
Andrew and Diane Watt of Holborne Fishing Company Ltd in Scrabster signed an order for a new 19 metre crabber to be built to an Ian Paton design. Holborne already operates the Sparkling Line, which was converted from a netter to operate as a crabber when it was acquired from Waterdance â€“ where it had been replaced by the Karen of Ladram.
The new Holborne crabber will be fitted with a 483hp Mitsubishi S6A3 MPTAW main engine, driving a 1900mm diameter propeller via a Reintjes WAF274K gearbox with a 7:1 reduction. Its design capacity is for 32,000 litres and construction is scheduled to start in summer next year, with a completion date in the summer of 2020.
Also signed at the Skipper show was an order for a 22 metre twin-rig trawler designed primarily for prawn trawling for skipper Robert West of the Fruitful Bough.
â€˜The build starts next week and the delivery date is the end of July next year,â€™ the Parkolâ€™s Sally Atkinson said.
The twin rigger will have a 600hp Cat C-18 main engine powering four-bladed 2400mm diameter propeller via a Masson MMW6000 gearbox with a 9.916:1 reduction.
The gensets come from Cummins, with a pair of 100kVa 6BT units, plus a 190kW QSL9 to power the hydraulics, with the 30tonne three-barrelled winch, twin 10 tonne net drums and the 10 tonne gilsons to be supplied by EK Marine.
