The 64 meter long vessel is designed and equipped for the lowest possible fuel consumption, making the fishing boat cheaper to operate and reducing emissions of environmentally harmful substances.
In our design we have emphasised that the vessel should have as low fuel consumption as possible. In order to achieve this we have optimised the hull lines to achieve least possible sea resistance, and chosen a propulsion solution from Wärtsilä that further contributes to good fuel economy. The main engine is a Wärtsilä W32 with 3000 kW.
The crew may, for instance, disconnect the main engine and operate the vessel on pure diesel-electric propulsion from an auxiliary engine with variable speed on the propeller. With its 1690 kW output, the auxiliary engine is so powerful that it can be used alone when fishing or during transportation. This kind of solution has only been used on a few other fishing vessels, and the solution chosen by Liegruppen Fisheries is a newly developed, more advanced version. These solutions were also implemented on its sister ship M/S Ligrunn wich was delivered autumn of 2014.
