Sunny Lady

Sunny Lady

Latest LNG-powered pelagic catcher

The Cemre Shipyard in Turkey has handed over pelagic vessel Sunny Lady to Norwegian owners Teige Rederi.

Designed by Salt Ship Design, Sunny Lady follows Libas, built for Lie Gruppen at the same yard as the first fishing vessels to run on LNG as fuel. Cemre has another such innovative vessel under construction, the Skipsteknisk-designed Selvåg Senior, which has been launched for outfitting – cementing Cemre’s reputation for building highly sophisticated fishing vessels.

Sunny Lady – the name is a historical one for owners Teige Rederi and came from a merchant vessel that was once part of the family company – is arranged for pelagic trawling and purse seining. The 86.50 metre, 18 metre breadth vessel has 2830m3 carrying capacity in its RSW tanks, chilled by a double 1500kW FrioNordica RSW plant. C-Flow provided the 720g03/h ozone system

The innovation lies in the hybrid propulsion courtesy of a 350m3 LNG tank and a 1024kWh battery pack.

Propulsion is provided by a 5500kW Wärtsilä 10V31DF main engine and a 4200mm WCP4G1190 propeller, complemented by a 3000kW PTO/1500kW PTI shaft generator. The genset is a 1665kW Wärtsilä 9L20DF, plus there is a 360kW Volvo Penta D13MG emergency genset.

The battery arrangement provides for peak shaving to optimise the main engine’s operation, and also allows for energy regenerated from the winches and other systems to be routed to the battery and made available for use elsewhere n board.

Elkon supplied the electrical system on board.

Sunny Lady has Rapp and Triplex deck hardware. The Rapp trawl winches have a 78.50-tonne pull and there are twin 67.20-tonne net drums. Also included in the Rapp package are a 49-tonne tail-end winch, a net sounder winch, breast line and end-line winches, a pair of 20-inch fish hose reels and cable reels for the two Rapp Hydema CP-3501E 20-inch fish pumps that have a 3500m3/h capacity.

Triplex supplied the two 14t/14.50m deck cranes, as well as the 3t/8.20m net stacker crane and the 4t/13m fish pump crane.

The two 36.60-tonne purse winches are from Rapp and the deck machinery for handling the purse seine is from Triplex,with a 30-tonne hauler, cork line and sink line stackers, and a 5t/12m net handling crane mounted on the aft gallows.
