Old Ship – Ultra Modern Propulsion

The conversion of the forty-year-old trawler Nordbas into a modern, efficient low-emission vessel demonstrates that it may make sense to rebuild old vessels. Fishing company Nordnes is focused on reusing old vessels part of their philosophy. The trawler has been lengthened as part of a very  extensive refit, which has included a conversion to diesel-electric propulsion and the installation of the largest capacity battery pack yet to be fitted to any fishing vessel. It has emerged as Nordbas from its refit at the Green Yard Kleven in Ulsteinvik as trawler/seine netter with a suite of new technology, including hybrid propulsion, electric winches and the use of waste heat to heat the vessel. photos, >click to read< 11:06
