A new Arctic shrimp trawler for Canadian company M.V. Osprey is being named at Tersan Shipyard in Turkey.
The Nova Scotia-based company ordered the vessel, which is based on a Skipsteknisk ST-118 design, in November 2015.
The 80.25-metre-long vessel, Northern Osprey III, is designed with a high ice-class for operation outside Newfoundland and Labrador.
Powered by a Tier III MAN main engine of 6000 kW coupled to a gearbox with PTO/PTI capacity of 3200 kW, it accommodates 38 people and includes a media/movie room, gymnasium and sauna.
Featuring the latest energy conservation and pollution reduction technology within DNV-GL’s Clean Ship Designation, the vessel is outfitted with a processing and freezing plant with a capacity of 125 tons per day.
Processing is arranged for grading, cooking and packing of different sizes of shrimps and processing of head and gutted white fish.
Northern Osprey III is arranged for pallet cargo in two separate cargo holds with individual freezing.
