"We really appreciate the trust that Klondyke Fishing Company and Karstensens Skibsværft has shown Brunvoll in this process, and we shall keep on working to maintain our good position and reputation in the fishing segment”, says Geir-Arne Kaspersen, Vice President Sales in Brunvoll.
The delivery to Karstensens Skibsværft includes several advanced Brunvoll products: the Integrated Costa Propulsion with controllable pitch propeller and gear, tunnel thruster, retractable azimuth combi thruster, and the Brunvoll BruCon control system.
The Integrated Costa Propulsion is a design concept where propeller, nozzle, and rudder are optimized and hydrodynamically optimized in unison by Brunvoll’s hydrodynamicists for maximum thrust and steering. The retractable azimuth combi thruster in the bow contributes to both sideways thrust, and additional propulsion and maneuvering power when needed.
Further, the BruCon control system allows the operator to fluently steer and maneuver the vessel in various operating conditions, from several operating stations onboard the vessel depending on the ongoing task.
“Chris Andra” will add to the Klondyke Fishing Company’s fleet of pelagic trawlers operating out of Fraserburgh, Scotland.
