Norwegian fishing company Nergard recently took delivery of a new stern trawler designed and built locally by Vard.

Breidtind is the second of three trawlers ordered by Nergård from Vard. It has an LOA of 80.4 metres, a moulded beam of 16.7 metres, a maximum draught of 6.9 metres, and accommodations for 25 personnel.

The newbuild is outfitted for semi-pelagic and bottom-trawling operations and also has processing and handling equipment optimised for fish and shrimp. Facilities include live tanks, refrigerated and freezer holds, and ensilage tanks for processing of biomass ashore.

The onboard amenities meanwhile include day rooms, mess areas, and a gym.
