Halifax Shipyards Gets C$27-Million Order For Three Stern Trawlers
Halifax I n d u s t r i e s Limited, Nova Scotia, the Canadian shiprepairing company, has reentered the market for fishing vessel new construction with a 27-million Canadian dollar order f o r three stern trawlers f r om National Sea Products Limited.
The 1,100-ton vessels—all three keels have already been laid—will be built on the recently modernized slipway at Halifax Shipyards and are due f o r delivery in April, July, and November, 1981.
William J. Riley, president and chief executive officer of Halifax Industries Limited, said: "Ship repair will continue to be our principal line of business, but fishing vessel and small vessel new construction will provide us with a very useful additional source of revenue, given that we already have the facilities.
"Although no trawlers have been built at Halifax for eight years, 28 vessels of this kind were built between 1964 and 1972, so we do have the necessary expertise." When fully under way, the trawler program will employ approximately 300 men, and a group of experienced professionals have been brought together to oversee this project and future new construction activities. A d d i t i o n al draftsmen and purchasing experts have been employed.
In conjunction with this new contract, Halifax I n d u s t r i e s is carrying out a six-million Canadian dollar capital project to rebuild the steel fabrication facilities at Halifax Shipyards. This i n v o l v e s the purchase of new equipment and the refurbishment of the existing plate shop, subassembly shop, and slipway.
The stern trawlers are 50.0 meters long, 11.8 meters wide, and have a designed draft of 4.0 meters (164 by 38.7 by 13 f e e t ) . Incorporating modern design techniques, the vessels can accommodate 18 crewmen and have a fish hold capacity of approximately 426 cubic meters. The vessels can carry 190 metric tons of fuel and 70 metric tons of fresh water.
The main engines will be M.A.K.
type 8 M 453 AK, 8-cylinder inline, four-stroke, n o n r e v e r s i b le marine diesel with supercharging and charge air cooling, direct injection.
Maximum output is 2,000 bhp (1,470 kw) at 600 rpm. The vessels will use a Lohmann and Stolterfoht reduction gearbox type GCM600, ratio 3:1. The propeller will be controllable-pitch Liaaen type with speed of 200 rpm, diameter of 2,750 mm, and having four stainless-steel blades working in a Kort-type nozzle.
The vessels will be classified as Lloyd's Register of Shipping, Ice Class 1A + LMC (Hull will be strengthened for Ice Class 1A Super).
