Newbuilding Department of Nauta Shipyard has begun construction of fully equipped fishing vessel - Ocean Star with a steel cutting ceremony held on April 26th. The ceremony was attended by representatives of shipowner, DnV and Wartsila Design.
Nauta has signed contract with a Scottish shipowner in December 2015. This is particularly important order, as it concerns building of a turn-key vessel and all construction process – from the beginning to the end – will be carried out at Nauta New Building Devision located in the former Gdańsk Shipyard. Furthermore, this project perfectly refers to the long tradition of Nauta Shipyard in the construction of fishing vessels.
Ocean Star will have over 87 m length and 18 m wide. The vessel will be equipped with the most modern fishing equipment such as fish finding, catching and storage system suitable for catching different type of school pelagic species. The complete propulsion plant, including main engine about 7 000 kW, together with two bow thrusters, will provide very good maneuverability during the catching operation and purse seining operation. The vessel will be built according to Wartsila design.
