Teige Rederi has placed an order for a Salt-designed pelagic vessel to be built at the Cemre yard in Turkey.
The new 86 metre, 18 metre breadth pelagic trawler/purse seiner is designed on energy-efficient and environmental lines as the new ship will be optimised for maximum energy efficiency, with a 350 cubic metre LNG tank in combination with diesel tank capacity and a large battery pack.
“This will save emissions of climate-harmful NOx, equivalent to 50,000 passenger cars. We want to drive sustainable fish harvesting, and for us it is important to reduce the climate impact in the time ahead,” said owner Sigurd Teige.
The new fishing vessel will be Sunny Lady, a name that has some history within Teige Rederi as having been inherited from a former LNG vessel that the shipping family previously owned.
“Sunny Lady will be built with a focus on efficiency and environmental thinking,” Sigurd Teige said, adding that with a forward-looking fishing vessel design and environmental thinking, the aim is to build a ship that is as energy-efficient as possible and which meets future requirements for emissions and climate considerations.
Teige Rederi includes the shipping companies Teigebris AS and Teige Rederi AS, which are owners of the pelagic vessels Sjøbris and Leikvin. The company has confirmed the sale of Leikvin to H Østervold.
