Rolls-Royce diesel engines will power a new stern trawler ordered by the Spanish company Pesquera Ancora S.L.U.

The vessel is an NVC 374 WP design by Rolls-Royce and is scheduled to be delivered in the first quarter of 2018. This is the fourth contract for the same Rolls-Royce design to be built by Norwegian shipbuilder Kleven.

The vessel will be 80m long, with a hull of ICE 1A* class, and will be powered by a six-cylinder Bergen B33:45 main engine producing 3600 kW at 750 r/min. The auxiliary engine is a six-cylinder Bergen C25:33 rated 1843 kW at 900 r/min.

Rolls-Royce is also supplying a range of other equipment including a Hybrid Shaft Generator, which the company said is an advanced power electric system for conditioning the power coming from a shaft generator, automation, winches and the fuel efficient Wave Piercing design.

Operational efficiency, low emissions, crew comfort, safety and good seakeeping capabilities were the main considerations in the development of the ship design and equipment package, said Rolls-Royce.

The vessel contains an onboard factory for the production of fish filets and has a storage capacity of 1400 m³. There is also a 550 m³ packaging and freezer room on deck. Since the early 1970s, Rolls-Royce has designed 130 vessels of the NVC design for the fishing industry. The current Rolls-Royce order book in this market now comprises seven trawlers and two live fish carriers.

“The fishing industry is about to modernize its fleet towards more sustainable operations and fishing methods. Our design and equipment will help ensure that this will be among the most effective and modern fishing vessels in the world,” said Monrad Hide, vice president Sales, Ship Design & Systems, Rolls-Royce.
