HB Grandi invites bids for new freezer trawler

Icelandic fishing company HB Grandi is inviting bids for the construction of a new factory freezer trawler.



The company currently operates three factory freezer trawlers, Örfirisey, Therney and Höfrungur III, all of which date back to 1988-1992, in addition to its four fresher trawler and two pelagic vessels. Another of the company’s trawlers, Helga María, was converted last year from a freezer to a fresher.



The company went to Rolls-Royce in Norway for the design of their planned new NVC 375 trawler. Specifications are for an overall length of 81 metres, a beam of 17 metres and a fishroom capacity for 1000 tonnes of products on pallets.



HB Grandi expects to announce a decision in May for the vessel to be delivered at the end of 2019.
