Greenest Fishing Trawlers in the World
“Our calculations show that the five-meter propeller is around 30- 40% more economical than the three-meter propeller,” says Skipasýn project manager Rakel Sævarsdóttir, pointing also to greater fuel efficiency of the new design. Skipasýn designed the propulsion systems for two trawlers which were launched in China last week: Páll Pálsson ÍS and Breki VE. Both ships are made for use around Iceland. The former will be based in Ísafjörður in the West Fjords and the latter in the Vestmannaeyjar.
