China: SENER, CSDDC and CSOC to Design 75 m Fishing Vessel for CNFC

SENER has signed a contract in Shanghai with CSDDC (China Ship Development and Design Center) and CSOC (China Shipbuilding & Offshore International Co. Ltd) for the joint design of a pelagic and bottom stern trawler. Once built, the fishing vessel will be operated by the company CNFC (China National Fisheries Corporation) in the fishing-grounds of the coast of West Africa.

This project represents an important milestone for SENER because it is the first marine engineering contract achieved in China.

The scope of the project to be developed by SENER includes conceptual and classification engineering and selection of the most important equipments of the vessel. The design is an important technological challenge for SENER, as it combines a bottom trawl (sole, squid, toothfish, etc) with pelagic trawl (scad, sardine, etc) and includes processing plants, freezing and storage for both fishing procedures. It is estimated that work will begin in March 2012 and will be completed by the end of the year. The project is going to be developed with 3D CAD/CAM system FORAN.

Among the most important requirements of the trawler, which will have an overall length of 75 meters, highlights its capacity, with fuel tanks of 600 tons, fish holds of 2,000 m3 (with refrigerating temperature of -28 ° C and freezing temperature of -40 ° C) and a fishmeal hold of 300 m3. The ship will have processing plant equipment for pelagic trawl of 10 tons per day, bottom trawl of 120 tons per day, and also a fishmeal machine with a daily processing capability of 50 tons. The free navigation speed will be 13 knots while the drag speed will be more than 5.5 knots for pelagic trawl and 4.5 knots for bottom trawl. It will have a crew of 45 people.

9th Annual Coasts and Marine Structures 2017 Conference

Discover Best Practise Strategies for Design, Planning, Construction and Asset Management

To remain competitive, Australian port operators must plan, design, manage and maintain their assets more creatively and proactively to meet future demands and drive profitability.

With this in mind, the Coast and Marine Structures Summit 2017 will focus on key considerations relevant to ensuring your existing assets are maximised and prepared to accommodate bigger vessels.

Hear from 20+ global experts including Maritime/Coastal Engineers, Contractors, Port Authorities and more, including GHD (USA), Indonesian Port Corporation (Asia), G-Group Consulting (New Zealand), Ausenco (Australia), Port Authority NSW (Australia), to name a few.

By attending this 2-day conference, you’ll learn about:

– Innovative planning and design of ports to create efficiencies that drive profit
– Best practice asset management strategies and new PIANC design principles for bulk terminals
– Proactive asset management and maintenance to improve durability and maximise and extend asset lifecycles
– Alternative material and protection techniques trialled and tested in the US and Europe
– Strategies to shift organisational culture and mindset from asset management to asset maintenance
– How you can leverage technology to increase the efficiency of your marine structures
– Case studies on retrofitting, expanding and upgrading your ports in cost-effective ways
