Karstensens accepts pelagic vessel order

Norwegian fisherman Henning Veibust has ordered a new pelagic vessel from Danish ship builder Karstensens.

The 80-metre by 16-metre Havskjer is scheduled to be delivered in early 2020.

Designed for minimal fuel consumption, Havskjer is powered by a 6000kW main engine with a two-step gearbox and the option of operating in diesel-electric mode.

Havskjer will feature energy-recovery systems for its engines and LED lighting throughout.
