The green vessel is loading... We’re so glad to announce that Cemre Shipyard signed a new contract with Lie Family through their Liafjord AS Company, for the world’s first battery and LNG fueled Purse Seiner/Trawler.
The vessel has the signature of Salt Ship Design AS and will be named “LIBAS”. Libas is a game-changer and pioneer in her field, plus, will be powered by a combination of batteries and an LNG-fueled main engine. She is 86,10-meter long with a 17,80-meter beam and classed by DNV GL rules. She will be built with a 350 cubic meter LNG tank, along with a large battery pack, which will be eco-friendly power for the new vessel. The battery system is used for peak shaving and also as an emergency source. Onboard of Libas, there is a 2.830 cubic meter RSW tank for storing fishes.
In the fishing industry, there is an innovator trend on energy efficiency and green solutions for reducing emissions, this is why, Cemre believes that in the future there are more fishing vessels like Libas, and we’re so proud to build the first battery and LNG fueled purse seiner/trawler in the world!
