ZAMAKONA YARDS keep good progress on the construction of its newbuild for Gitte Henning A/S, holding the start of the steel cutting for NB‐799 on 8th May and keel laying done on 14th July as scheduled. By end of the year, 80% of the steel fabrication will be completed.

NB‐799 will show up a number of environmentally friendly solutions, many of them new in pelagic fishing (two propellers and a twin‐skeg hull design, permanent magnet motors for propulsion and deck machinery, battery pack, etc…). 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.

The whole steel blocks for the vessel are being manufactured at the facilities of the yard in Bilbao, Spain. Specially now, Zamakona Yards continue with its strategy of no outsourcing to low cost third countries, assuring best quality and delivery time for the steel structure of the vessel.

Factory Acceptance Test for main equipment are being done in several places in Europe.

Equipment installation will start in the beginning of 2021.
