• Zamakona Yards Canary Islands – Important Release

    Zamakonayards in the Canary Islands has been considered by the Security Department of Las Palmas Port Authority as an essential facility within the Port of Las Palmas which is considered a Critical State Facility. 

    As an essential element for the continuity of the services of a Critical Infrastructure of the Spanish State, we must remain open and contribute with our work, to collaborate among all of us to overcome the current situation. 

    We therefore continue to be at your service, to ensure that all naval resources can continue their work and that the port has all its capacities to respond to possible emergencies and other needs of the sector.

  • Siuana Arctica Zamakona Yards

    Launching of the ARCTICA SIUANA

    Zamakona Yards reaches a new milestone with the launching of the first of the two 69 m reefer vessels to be built for the Greenlandic shipowner Royal Arctic Line A/S. Vessel will be named as SIUANA ARCTICA and will replace the existing vessel Pajuttaat built in 1979. Conceptual design is being carried out by the Norwegian company Havyard Design & Solutions.

    Launching will take place on the 4th of February in the presence of representatives of the shipowner.

    The ship is designed to operate in northwest Greenland and have greater capacity than current ship. The ship will have the flag of Greenland and outfitting works will continue afloat being delivery expected to be by summer 2020.

    Zamakona Yards have closely worked with the shipowner and designer to provide the vessel with best performance at sea, maximum cargo capacity and high efficient cargo handling system.

    Zamakona project team together with our partners for the different disciplines (piping, electricity, accommodation, painting, etc.) will ensure that Royal Arctic Line receives an state of the art vessel.

  • New green Gitte Henning

    GITTE HENNING fishing company is leading the way by bringing fishing in blue Denmark into a new, green age by contracting a new, environmentally friendly pelagic fishing vessel from the Spanish shipyard Zamakona in Bilbao.

    Henning Kjeldsen says he initially intended to withdraw from fishing after the sale of Gitte Henning to the Faroe Islands, as well as receiving offers for all his pelagic fishing rights. After thinking about the future, I got cold feet doing nothing, and contacted Salt Ship Design, says Henning.

    Together, Henning and Salt have now designed a new, green Gitte Henning. The new fishing vessel will have a number of environmentally friendly solutions, many of them new in pelagic fishing. Throughout the design process and in the choice of equipment, the focus has been on improving quality of the fish and reducing emissions through reduced energy consumption and efficient power production.

    By ordering a new Gitte Henning it is the fourth time Henning Kjeldsen and the Sandvik family are designing a vessel together, and the second time Henning is ordering a Salt-design.

     

    REDUCED ENERGY CONSUMPTION

    Propulsion and manoeuvring

    The one large propeller that is common on pelagic trawlers has been replaced by two propellers and a twin-skeg hull design. Extensive flow analysis and model tests result is a more efficient stern and propeller design, which provides larger trawling pull and less fuel consumption during trawling. Large rudder angles are often needed on conventional fishing vessels to maintain course, even in moderate weather conditions. Two propellers provide the opportunity to steer the ship with minimal rudder impact, which reduces additional energy requirements during sailing and trawling.

    Permanent Magnet Motor (PM)

    The two propellers are powered by two electric Permanent Magnet (PM) motors. This type of motor has less electrical loss and can operate significantly more efficient than conventional electric motors throughout the power range – particularly at low engine speeds. Low propeller rpm has the following advantages:

    • Better propeller efficiency at typical loading
    • No need for reduction gear and thus no mechanical loss
    • Reduced noise

    Electrical winches

    All winches are also powered by PM motors for reduced loss and optimal operation. Electrical winches provide the opportunity to regenerate, the other vice lost, energy when the trawl is set. This energy is available to other consumers and can, for example, be used for propulsion or RSW (refrigerated sea water) cooling. Conventional hydraulic winches and fishing pumps require a system with a significant amount of hydraulic oil. The risk of hydraulic oil spill to sea is eliminated by choosing electric winches.

    RSW cooling and fish quality

    The RSW area at the new Gitte Henning is arranged in a new way that gives inner surfaces of the RSW tanks a smooth finish with no obstructions or sharp edges. The vessel is equipped with four independent cooling systems, with four RSW tanks per facility. This provides a more efficient cooling process by only cooling parts of the fish tank volume at the time, resulting in an optimal, energy saving cooling system. In addition, the capacity of the vacuum system for unloading has been increased by 40% compared to normal unloading capacity.

    Overall, this will provide a more careful handling of the fish that will improve quality.

    Electrical operation

    All electric motors, from winches to pumps, are frequency controlled. This will provide a more customised power supply and hence reduce the overall energy consumption.

     

    EFFICIENT POWER PRODUCTION

    Diesel Electric

    Five diesel generators, located in two separate engine rooms for the best possible safety and working environment, supply the propulsion PM motors and all other energy consumers on board. All generators are equipped with catalytic converter (SCR) to reduce emissions and meet new and stricter IMO Tier III requirements.

    The energy requirements of a pelagic trawler fluctuate significantly with varying weather, operational conditions, cooling requirements, speed, etc. The number and size of generators are chosen to optimize the power balance based on the vessel specific operational profile and give the diesel engine optimum operating conditions and thus high efficiency.

    Hybrid

    To further improve the operating conditions of the diesel engines, Henning has invested in a large battery pack that support the generators when the load is high and recharges when the load is low. Regenerated power from the winches during trawling also helps to charge the battery pack.

    In this way, the diesel engine will not experience the large load variations which in itself gives a fuel reduction of the range of ~ 10% based on the experience of other diesel electric vessels. So called ‘Peak Shaving’, i.e. the battery is ‘shaving’ the load peaks.

    The batteries are located in a separate room, thus providing an additional source of emergency power in addition to the diesel generators in the two engine rooms. In addition, they will significantly reduce noise and emissions in port.

  • Bunker Breeze

    ZAMAKONA carries out the launching of the vessel BUNKER BREEZE for the SUARDIAZ GROUP

    Astilleros Zamakona will celebrate today the launching of its construction 787, the new fuel supply ship “BUNKER BREEZE” for the company Suardiaz Energy Shipping (Suardiaz Group), the third construction by Zamakona for this same ship owner.

    This supply vessel can cover the entire spectrum of marine fuels from traditional fuels (fuel oil, gas oil) to the most innovative (LNG).

    The project is part of the framework of the European Commission in the field of environmental protection, where the main objective is to develop an LNG logistic chain that will allow to promote the use of gas as a fuel for transport, especially shipping. It is led by Puertos del Estado (Spanish Port Authority) and coordinated by Enagás, the project has 42 partners from Spain and Portugal, including Suardiaz and Cepsa.

    This vessel will start its activity in the port of Barcelona as of the last quarter of 2018.

    The “Bunker Breeze” is 86 meters lenght by 17 meters beam and weighs 5,250 tons. The vessel has the capacity to house 10 HFO and MDO cargo tanks and four for LNG tanks.

    The Zamakona Yards Group has several facilities in Santurtzi (Vizcaya), Pasajes (Guipúzcoa) and Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Canary Islands), with more than 41 years of experience in the construction and naval repair of all types of vessels.
