At GONDAN Shipyard in Figueras, at high tide, the launching of a new Fishing Stern Trawler Vessel built for Prestfjord AS has just taken place.

The vessel, designed by Kongsberg Maritime has a length of 77.3 m and a beam of 17 m.

Built in steel with aluminum superstructure, the stern trawler will operate in Arctic areas, in the Barents Sea and Svalbard waters. With an accommodation for 29 people, the freezing trawler will be operated for cod and prawns, as well as their processing. For this, it will have the most modern and automated fish processing equipment, including a meal plant, and a total hold capacity of 2250 m3. 

The vessel will be classified by the DNV and will be Ice class certified.

It is the second vessel that GONDAN builds to Prestfjord AS, a very important shipowner in the world of fish farms and Norway’s second largest fish producer.
