VARD has placed a contract with Hydroniq Coolers to deliver the marine seawater cooling system to a newbuild stern trawler. The new vessel, newbuild 930 from VARD, will be the third highly advanced trawler designed and built by VARD for Nergård Havfiske in under four years.
Under the new contract, Aalesund-based Hydroniq Coolers will supply its Rack seawater cooling system to the stern trawler. This type of marine cooling system is integrated in the hull below the main engine room of the vessel, where it reduces temperatures in the ship’s engines and other auxiliary systems through the use of seawater.
The stern trawler is of VARD 8 02 design, developed by Vard Design, and will have a length of 80.4 meters and a beam of 16.7 meters. The vessel design is a well-proven design that VARD has continuously developed to meet the latest demands for fish health management, efficiency, and environmentally friendly operations.
Hydroniq Coolers will manufacture and assemble the marine cooling system at its headquarter outside Aalesund, Norway, and deliver it to Vard Brattvaag in Norway in 2023.
