Karstensens to construct fishing vessel for European customers

Shipyard Karstensens, based in Skagen, Denmark, has an order for two fishing vessels.

A custom-designed 77m-long vessel, named Christina S, will be owned and operated by the Scotland-based Christina S Fishing Company in partnership with P&J Johnston. The ship will be powered by a Wärtsilä 31 main engine and will also feature other Wärtsilä equipment including a nitrogen oxide emissions reduction system, reduction gear, controllable pitch propeller and propulsion remote control system. The equipment will be delivered during summer 2022 and vessel's delivery is scheduled for July 2023.

Swedish fishing company Gifico has also ordered a 64m-long fishing vessel to be named Ginneton. The design incorporates a Wärtsilä 32 main engine, plus other Wärtsilä systems including the reduction gear, controllable pitch propeller and propulsion remote control system. The equipment from Wärtsilä is planned for delivery towards the end of 2022.

“We have worked with Wärtsilä on building the right concept for this vessel. We feel that Wärtsilä’s technology is always a step ahead, and their service support is top class,” says Philip Claeson, owner, Gifico.

Ginneton is due to be delivered to the operator in August 2023.
