Rolls-Royce informs it has won a contract to design and equip a new Rolls-Royce NVC 375 WP stern trawler for Icelandic fishing company HB Grandi.

The 82 meter vessel will process various filet products and has a freezing capacity of 100 metric tons/ 24 hours. It has an approximately 1,600 m3 cargo hold capacity with an additional approximately 700 m3 meal hold. The holds are constructed for palletized cargo.

The trawler has a fuel-efficient Wave Piercing hull. The main equipment will also include a B33:45 diesel engine together with Promas integrated rudder and propeller system and a Hybrid Shaft Generator (HSG) system providing the most fuel efficient propulsion system available. The trawler will be equipped with electric driven winches including permanent magnet (PM) driven electric trawl winches.

The vessel will be built at the Armon shipyard in Gijón, Spain and is due for delivery in the middle of 2019.

This is the second fishing contract signed with the yard for a Rolls-Royce designed vessel. It follows a contract for a NVC 372 design Stern Trawler for the Norwegian fishing company Ramoen.
