New Svend C calls in Faroes
The Tersan Shipyard at Yalova in Turkey has delivered a new shrimp factory trawler to owners Sikuaq Trawl in Greenland.
The new Svend C is designed to catch and process shrimp at sea and unlike the companyâ€™s previous vessels, it also has capacity to work with pelagic gear and to process herring and mackerel on board on a seasonal basis.
The Skipsteknisk-designed Svend C has an 82.60 metre overall length and a 17 metre beam. It has a 12-cylinder 6960kW WÃ¤rtsilÃ¤ main and gensets, as well as WÃ¤rtsilÃ¤ auxiliaries. The factory deck is fitted out with Optimar and Carsoe systems, including four horizontal plate freezers and three IQF freezers to give the processing deck a 220 tonnes/day capacity.
Svend C called first at FuglafjÃ¶rÃ°ur in the Faroe Islands to bunker and take on its Oliveira trawl warps supplied by VÃ³nin, before steaming to TÃ³rshavn to collect the trawlerâ€™s full package of fishing gear from VÃ³ninâ€™s net loft.
VÃ³nin supplied Svend C with four 3800 mesh four-panel VÃ³nin 2014 shrimp trawls, 16 square metre trawl doors, a 1728 pelagic trawl with 49 metre codends and a pair of 13 square metre pelagic trawl doors.
