On Saturday, September 7 , the launching of Izaro was held at the premises of Zamakona Yards in Bilbao. This vessel is a tuna freezer of 1,900 m3 and belongs to the Echebastar Group. The investment is 30 million Euros and the delivery is scheduled for January 2014.

This is the first ship of a new generation of tuna fishers, designed and developed by the Naval Engineering Department Cintranaval - Defcar SL in cooperation with Echebastar. The ship is designed for tuna fishing by the system to purse seine of fishing grounds in the Atlantic, Indian and Pacific ocean. The vessel has a single controllable propeller and 20 tanks for freezing and conservation of tuna. Four of them will be used for ultra freezing. Fish will be held in tanks and by a system of immersion in brine, the tuna will subsequently be preserved dry frozen in the same tank. To facilitate fishing operations an onboard passive stabilization system is installed. The vessel will have accommodations for 40 people as indicated on the General Arrangement Plan. It will also have nursing for three.

Currently, in addition to this ship, Zamakona Yards is involved in the development of various construction projects including Polaris Ronja, transportation ship and treatment of live fish for the company Sølvtrans AS; Osprey Ocean, offshore vessel for the ship owner Atlantic Offshore AS Norwegian and Ljubica, tuna fisher for the company Hartswater Ltd.
