Vigo based Metalships & Docks is preparing to deliver an ‘arctic factory freezer’ trawler for Niisa Trawl Aps based Nuuk, Greenland.
The new vessel named “Regina C” is a tailored design known as ST-118, for operation in heavy ice around the coast of Greenland. It will have a length of 80m, a beam of 17m and built according to DNV GL class with the highest Baltic ice-class rating.
Regina C will provide accommodation for up to 32 crew members, all arranged in modern, well appointed single and double cabins. It further offers the highest safety standards for crew, during all kinds of operations and weather conditions.
The vessel will be outfitted primarily for the northern coldwater shrimp fishery, but options for other fisheries have been incorporated into its design. In a further effort to boost environmental standards, Regina C has been developed to reduce discharge and pollutants into water or air and while recovering and recycling excess energy wherever possible.
