Teknotherm was awarded the contract to supply the HVAC and refrigeration for a freezing trawler for Norwegian ship owner Engenes Fiskeriselskap AS. The freezer trawler will operate mainly in the North Atlantic, Barents Sea, and Svalbard waters. It will be operated for heading, gutting, and freezing of whole white fish. Engenes Fiskeriselskap’s new vessel is designed for bottom trawling as well as pelagic trawling. It will have a modern factory deck arrangement to handle and freeze both white fish and shrimps, and ensure a high quality catch. The vessel is designed by Kongsberg and can accommodate up to 29 crew members.
