New Resolute is Wärtsilä design

Published by FiskerForum, 22-01-2019 · info@fiskerforum.dk

Wärtsilä will provide both the design package and the main engine and propulsion for a new pelagic vessel to be built in Spain for Scottish owners.

The new 69.80 metre Resolute is to be built at the Astilleros Balenciaga yard in Spain for Fraserburgh owners Castlehill. The order was placed at the end of last year and the new vessel is scheduled to be delivered in 2020, replacing the current Resolute.

‘We have earlier worked closely with both Castlehill and the Balenciaga yard, and we are pleased to be co-operating with them again on this benchmark project. Wärtsilä’s Smart Marine vision supports the development of efficient and environmentally sustainable solutions, and this ship will certainly meet those criteria,’ said Riku-Pekka Hägg, Wärtsilä Marine’s Director, Ship Design, commenting that this innovative new pelagic vessel will provide high effiency and will represent the latest in fishing industry design.

‘Wärtsilä has tremendous experience and an excellent track record in producing advanced fishing vessel designs, and we are confident that this latest design will meet our expectations. We also appreciate Wärtsilä’s positive co-operation during the concept development phase of this project,’ said Resolute’s owner George West.

In addition to the ship design and relevant documentation, Wärtsilä will also supply a Wärtsilä 32 main engine, as well as the gear, shaft line, stern tube and combined pitch propeller (CPP). Under a separate agreement, the company will also develop a concept that can be used for the owner’s application for an extended fishing quota.
