Spanish Ingeteam Power Technology, S.A. is to supply a hybrid-electric propulsion system for a new pelagic fishing vessel to be built by Bilbao’s Zamakona Shipyard.
The 87.6m-long trawler, designed by Norway’s Salt Ship Design for Danish fishing company Gitte Henning, will have the company’s name and a range of features to ensure the best quality of landed fish and optimal environmental performance through efficient power production. The Spanish company is to provide engineering, supply, commissioning and sea trials support of the hybrid propulsion system.
The set-up will comprise generators with selective catalytic reduction to meet IMO Tier III standards, a power management and distribution system, a propulsion system made up of two Indar permanent magnet motors driven by low voltage Ingedrive converters, and a 1,130-kWh battery pack with shore connection controlled by an Ingeship energy management system. The trawler will also have one 1,400-kW bow thruster and two 700-kW aft tunnel thrusters integrated by an Ingeship propulsion control system.
