Rolls-Royce announced it has signed a £7 million contract to design and equip a stern trawler for the Norwegian fishing company Prestfjord Havfiske AS.

The trawler is a Rolls-Royce NVC 370 design and will be built at Freire Shipyard in Vigo, Spain. At 69 meters long, the vessel will carry out traditional fishing operations for whitefish and shrimps, and will be equipped for both bottom and pelagic trawl. It will operate mainly in Norwegian, Russian and Greenland waters.

Monrad Hide, VP Sales & Contract for Fish and Special Purpose Vessels at Rolls-Royce, said, “This will be the third Rolls-Royce vessel chosen by Prestfjord Havfiske AS and we are of course very happy about this new contract and the close cooperation we have with this innovative owner. Fuel-economy, environmental considerations, comfort, performance at sea and catch quality underpin the NVC 370 vessel design.”

The vessel will have a hybrid propulsion system, based on the Rolls-Royce Hybrid Shaft Generator system (HSG), meaning the ship can be operated in diesel-electric or diesel-mechanical mode. An effective Bergen diesel engine will be installed together with the integrated rudder and propeller system Promas. Electric permanent magnet driven trawl winches will also be delivered by Rolls-Royce.

Much development work, including CFD calculations, has been performed in order to design a hull which ensures fuel-efficient speed, low-noise, cost-effective operation and good sea-keeping.
