Newbuild arrives in Iceland

Mynd: Kristján Maac

The first trawler in a wave of 5 newbuilds arrived in Iceland late January. The fresh-fish trawler ENGEY RE owned by HB-Grandi was delivered by Celiktrans yard in Turkey early January and is equipped with many innovative functions aiming at fuel savings.

The biggest fuel saving aspects are achieved by having all electric deck winches, supplied by Naust Marine, and a variable RPM main engine for optimal running on all vessel profiles. Naust Marine launched a new product in relation to the variable speed main engine, the Constant Frequency Generator (CFG), also known as a static omformer. The CFG supplies constant electrical frequency for the equipment on board that does not handle variable frequency. This way they can still run the whole vessel on the main engine only, leaving the auxiliary gensets for standby operation only. Naust Marine has to date, supplied this solution to 5 vessels.

ENGEY is equipped with a complete electric winch and control system from Naust Marine.

  • ATW CatchControl autotrawl system
  • 2x 45 ton Trawl winches with 2700 m wire capacity of 30 mm wire
  • 4x 18 ton Sweepline winches
  • 3x 18 ton Gilson winches
  • 2x 13 ton Codend winches with extra large drum
  • 2x 5 ton Trix winches
  • 1x 7 ton Outhaul winch
  • 2x 800 kg. Backstrop winches
  • 3x 800 kg. Gilson hook Retriever winches
  • 1x 26 ton Netdrum winch wit 20m3 storage capacity
  • 1x 2 ton Netsounder/Cable winch
  • 2x Anchor winch with wildcats and chain mover, BV class approved
  • Engey will spend her first few weeks in Iceland being equipped with her processing equipment in Akranes, before being officially delivered in Reykjavík early spring.

Naust Marine congratulates HB Grandi on this great addition to their fleet of vessels, and appreciates the continued business relationship between the two companies that now spans over 3 decades.
