Two newbuild Skipasýn-designed trawlers are on their way to Iceland from the Huanghai shipyard at Rongcheng, China.
The 50.7 metre by 12.8-metre vessels, Breki and Páll Pálsson, accommodate a crew of 18 and each has fishroom capacity for 525 460-litre tubs.
Breki has been built for Vinnslustöðin í Vestmannaeyjum. Páll Pálsson has been built for Hraðfrystihús Gunnvör.
Skipasýn project manager Rakel Sævarsdóttir said the boats’ 4.7-metre-diameter propellers and MAN propulsion systems will provide more power per litre than conventional vessels.
