A ‘Resolute’ Remake

21 January 2019

Wärtsilä will provide ship design as well as the main engine and other propulsion equipment for a new fishing vessel.

The ship will be built at the Balenciaga shipyard in Spain for Castlehill, the Fraserburgh, Scotland based owners. The order with Wärtsilä was booked in November 2018 and is slated to be delivered in 2020.

The 69.8 m long Resolute will replace an existing trawler of the same name in the owner’s fleet. It will operate in the fishing grounds of the North Sea. In addition to the ship design and relevant documentation, Wärtsilä will also supply a Wärtsilä 9L32E main engine, as well as the gear, shaft line, stern tube and combined pitch propeller (CPP). Under a separate agreement, the company will also develop a concept that can be used for the owner’s application for an extended fishing quota.

The Wärtsilä 9L32E engine has a bore and stroke of 320 X 400 mm and offers 5220 kW at 750 rpm.

“We have earlier worked closely with both Castlehill and the Balenciaga yard, and we are pleased to be cooperating with them again on this benchmark project,” said Riku-Pekka Hägg, director, Ship Design, Wärtsilä Marine. “Wärtsilä’s Smart Marine vision supports the development of efficient and environmentally sustainable solutions, and this ship will certainly meet those criteria.”
