Vard Holdings Limited has secured a contract worth approximately NOK 350 million for the construction of one stern trawler for a new Canadian client. 

The ice-classed vessel will be 79 meters long, 16.6 meters wide and is of Rolls-Royce NVC 374 design. Developed for shrimp trawling in the harsh environments of the North Atlantic, it also features an on board shrimp processing plant.
Delivery is scheduled from Vard Aukra in Norway in the fourth quarter of 2016, and the hull of the vessel will be built at Vard Braila in Romania.
VARD CEO and executive director Roy Reite said, "We are currently seeing an increasing demand for new generation vessels from the fishing sector, and are delighted to have secured the contract for this advanced vessel from a new international client."
