Ramoen orders stern trawler


Norwegian fishing company Ramoen has recently ordered a stern trawler newbuilding, to be built at Spanish shipyard Astilleros Armón.

The 75-metre vessel, to be built to Rolls-Royce's type-NVC 372 design, will carry out traditional fishing operations for whitefish and shrimp and will be equipped for both bottom and pelagic trawl.

The vessel will have a 1,200m3 cargo hold capacity, a 450m3 meal hold, and a freezing capacity of 90 tonnes every 24 hours. The vessel holds are also constructed to take palletised cargo.

To improve efficiency and environmental friendliness, the vessel will have an optimised hybrid propulsion system configuration featuring a Bergen engine system and Promas integrated rudder and propellers.

As well as the vessel's design, Rolls-Royce will also supply the vessel's equipment package, which will also include low-pressure hydraulically driven trawl winches.
