Single engine ice class trawlers fit for adverse conditions
Fisherman can operate in the Barents and North Atlantic with two new Ice3 class fishing trawlers fitted with Wärtsilä engines.
Wärtsilä will provide each ship with an 8-cylinder 32 main engine, gearbox, controllable pitch propeller system, transverse thrusters system and ‘ProTouch’ propulsion control system.
Alexander Staritsyn, general manager - Europe & Africa, marine solutions at Wärtsilä, said: "For vessels with just a single main engine and one propeller operating in remote and difficult waters, nothing can be allowed to go wrong. For this reason, we are proud that Wärtsilä was chosen to supply the propulsion machinery.”
Nord Pilgrim vessels
The 80m long trawlers are being built for Russia-based Nord Pilgrim and will be constructed at the PJSC Vyborg shipyard in Russia.
Auxiliary generating power will be supplied by one 6-cylinder and one 4-cylinder Wärtsilä 20 Auxpac engine.
The gearbox has integrated hydraulics, which increases its reliability while also reducing the space needed, said Wärtsilä. This arrangement facilitates easier installation and commissioning.
The Wärtsilä engines are compliant with the IMO's Tier II emissions regulations.
The equipment is scheduled for delivery to the PJSC Vyborg shipyard in March 2018 and January 2019.
