On 13th November 2015, Nauta Shiprepair Yard signed a contract for building fully equipped fishing vessel. The unit has been ordered by a Scottish owner Mewstead LLP (Michael Tait).
– This contract is another important step in Nauta newbuilding activities. So far the Yard has built mainly partly equipped hulls of fishing ships – said Krzysztof Juchniewicz, CEO of Nauta Shiprepair Yard. – Now we have started the next stage which is construction of turn-key delivery vessels, where we will not only build the steel hull but integrate all sophisticated equipment – Juchniewicz added.
– During last two years Nauta signed contracts for 12 partly outfitted purse seiner trawlers for Danish and Norwegian customers. By executing turn-key contracts we believe that the Yard will be placed in a higher level of know-how necessary for these kind of contracts – said Ewa Jagielska, director of marketing in Newbuilding Departament.
The vessel, over 87 m long and 18 m wide will be equipped with the most modern fishing equipment such as fish finding, catching and storage system suitable for different type of school pelagic spices. The complete propulsion plant, including main engine about 7 000 kW, together with two bow thrusters, will provide very good manoeuvrability during the catching operation and purse seining operation.
