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.

Danish Maritime Technology Conference 2016

A part of Danish Maritime Days 

For the first half of 2016, the key buzzword of the maritime industry have been ‘The Fourth Industrial Revolution’. The global maritime industry stands in the midst of a market with changing dynamics, where emerging technologies give endless possibilities with an unprecedented processing power.

The emerging technologies have opened up for new products and services that increase efficiency through the entire maritime value chain. The Danish Maritime Technology Conference looks at the key drivers emerging in and from the Fourth Industrial Revolution – the technologies, the products and the services that leads this market change.

The new waves of accelerating technological development require new forms of conducting agile business, given the speed at which innovation and disruption takes place. Members of Danish Maritime are global market leaders within the maritime industry, and together with specialists they will discuss their core challenges and present their solutions to a game changing market.
