Keel laying completed and “Prion” trawler first large blocks at Nodosa

The vessel has been commissioned to the shipyard by Petrel Fishing Company Ltd, owned by Grupo Pescapuerta

Nodosa shipyard has completed these days the keel laying and the movements to place several large blocks of the hull in the slipway where the trawler "PRION" is taking shape. The "PRION", ordered to Nodosa by Petrel Fishing Company Ltd, owned by the PESCAPUERTA Group, is a vessel of almost 2,500 GT, 85 meters long and 14 meters wide, one of the largest in the renewal of the Atlantic fleet. South built in recent years. The new freezer is construction number 305 of the shipyard, who has fully designed and developed it, together with the shipowner's technical team, due to deliver at the end of 2024.

A series of important technical issues stand out the design, which the shipowner has special concern for, were already tried and tested in the "FALCON", freezer delivered by Nodosa to the same shipowner a year and a half ago, with excellent results in its fishing campaigns. These improvements aimed to respect the environment, safety, comfort and breaks of the crew on board, and the final product quality.

Both the main engine and auxiliaries meet demanding regulations of the fishing ground in terms of emission control and have been designed to always work at the best speeds, thus ensuring lower polluting emissions and greater savings in fuel consumption. After all, energy efficiency is environmental efficiency.
