New generation trawler design from Ulstein
Working with fishing company Nordic Wildfish, Ulstein Group has developed a new series of fishing vessel designs with the aim of providing more gentle fish handling possibilities and to be more environmentally friendly. The design incorporates Ulsteinâs X-Bow concept, contributing to reduced vibration and pitching, providing a better working platform at sea, with reduced noise levels.
According to Ulstein, the X-Bow arrangement provides opportunities for a better placement of crew quarters, factory decks and cargo capacity. The Ulstein concept places the factory on two decks, while accommodation is clustered in a central area.
Ulstein Group has a track record of co-operating with different entities in developing new and innovative ship designs. On this instance, Ulstein worked closely together with Nordic Wildfish. Both companies have a long history behind them and both date back to 1917.
âNordic Wildfish has solid experience in trawling and in testing new methods for fishery and market. We both have a history of being innovative and come up with advancing solutions,â said Tore Ulstein, who heads Ulsteinâs board as well as its design teams.
âThrough this cooperation we have developed improved and state-of-the art solutions for quality and sustainability in trawl fishery.â
The design series is based on experience gained through field studies and advanced analyses. The unique design, with optimal capacity is expected to make significant improvements in trawler fishing.
âWe want to turn visions into reality with regards to our EcoFiveÂŽ project (Eco-friendly fishing vessel). Ulsteinâs trawler series is designed to implement solutions for gentle fish catch, effective processing and hydrolysing of the rest of the raw material. This will provide significantly increased sustainability in trawling, better quality, higher efficiency, more earnings and less environmental footprint,â commented Tore Roaldsnes at Nordic Wildfish.
The vessels in the series have an effective hybrid system which combines batteries with diesel-electric and diesel-mechanical propulsion. The result is expected to be greater fuel efficiency, low noise and compliance with the requirements of the DNV-GL SILENT notation.
The series of new trawler designs range from a 54 metre vessel with a 17 metre beam and accommodation for a crew of 18, through 65 and 76 metre versions up to 90 and 104 metres vessels at the top of the scale.
