Gondan Delivers Stern Trawler to Prestfjord
Spanish shipbuilder Gondan said it delivered the factory freezing stern trawler Sunderøy. It is one of the most advanced vessels of its kind, which will be operated by Prestfjord AS, one of Norway's largest fishing and fish farm owners.
Built in steel with aluminum superstructure, the stern trawler will operate in Arctic areas, in the Barents Sea and Svalbard waters.
Designed by Kongsberg Maritime, the vessel has a length of 77.3 meters and a beam of 17 meters. With an accommodation for 29 people, the freezing trawler will be operated for cod and prawns, as well as their processing. For this, it has automated fish processing equipment, including a meal plant, and a total hold capacity of 2,250 cubic meters. The ice class certified vessel is classified by DNV GL.
It is the second vessel that Gondan has built for Prestfjord AS, Norway’s second largest fish producer.
