The Gondan shipyard in Figueras has launched a new stern trawler being built for the Norwegian shipowner Engenes Fiskeriselskap AS.

This new vessel, designed by Kongsberg Maritime - who also supplied much of the vessel's main equipment - is 69.9 meters long with a beam of 16 meters. Built in steel with aluminum superstructure, the stern trawler will operate mainly in Northern Atlantic, Barents Sea and Svalbard waters. With an accommodation for 29 people, the freezing trawler will be operated for heading, gutting and freezing of whole white fish. The newbuild features automated fish processing equipment and a freezing hold capacity of 1,400 cubic meters. The vessel will be classified by the DNV GL and will be ice class certified.

The global situation generated as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic has represented a challenge for the company, which has managed to face it with great effort and thanks to careful coordination and implementation of all necessary measures, in accordance with current Government regulations, successfully achieving the fulfillment of its commitments, and moving forward despite the difficulties.
