HB Grandi trials new trawler

HB Grandi’s new trawler Viðey has successfully completed its first two sea trials in the Westfjords fishing grounds.

Viðey was delivered and arrived in Iceland in December, after which it was steamed to Akranes for the catch handling deck and the unmanned fishroom to be installed. The installation was completed by the beginning of June.

The trawler will replace HB Grandi’s Ottó N Thorláksson.

The vessel utilises two Bacalao trawls, each doos weighing around four tonnes.
