SENER signs contract with CSDDC and CSOC for the joint design of a pelagic and bottom stern trawler

The SENER contracts are with the Chinese CSDDC ((China Ship Development and Design Center) & CSOC (China Shipbuilding & Offshore International Co. Ltd).

Once built, the fishing vessel will be operated by the company CNFC (China National Fisheries Corporation) in the fishing-grounds of the coast of West Africa. This project represents an important milestone for SENER because it is the first marine engineering contract achieved in China.

The scope of the project to be developed by SENER includes conceptual and classification engineering and selection of the most important equipment for the vessel.

The design is an important technological challenge for SENER, as it combines a bottom trawl (sole, squid, toothfish, etc) with pelagic trawl (scad, sardine, etc) and includes processing plants, freezing and storage for both fishing procedures.

It is estimated that work will begin in March 2012 and will be completed by the end of the year. The project is going to be developed with 3D CAD/CAM system FORAN.

The trawler, will have an overall length of 75 meters, with fuel tanks to contain 600 tons of bunkers, fish holds of 2,000 m3 (with refrigerating temperature of -28 ° C and freezing temperature of -40 ° C) and a fishmeal hold of 300 m3.

The free navigation speed will be 13 knots while the drag speed will be more than 5.5 knots for pelagic trawl and 4.5 knots for bottom trawl. It will have a crew of 45 people.
