Featured solutions

ECOFIVE is a concept for fishing vessels where the goal is to utilise 100 per cent of the catch, minimise quality losses during handling and reduce energy consumption. Bluewild’s next factory trawler will be the first fishing vessel to use ECOFIVE with a newly developed method for taking the catch onboard. The ECOFIVE concept for sustainable fishing - Ulstein

The new trawler will primarily be used for shrimp and whitefish trawling. Ulstein has developed a battery hybrid propulsion solution that is expected to provide large reductions in diesel consumption and emissions. This is solved by improving the efficiency of a wide range of power requirements. Hybrid propulsion system - Can give a boost for future emission reduction in the fishing fleet - Ulstein
