06 dec Contract for newbuild for Iceland
HVSA has signed a contract with the icelandic shipping company Hafborg for the building and delivery of a 26 m combined flyshooter and gillnetter.
The family-owned shipping company sees father and son collaborating with a little gillnetter and a flyshooter. Those two vessels now will be combined into a larger common ship that will be able to perform both fishing methods.
Part of the year they fish from the island of Grimsey from where the family origins. The island is situated approximately 3 hours north of Iceland in arctic waters. The rest of the year they fish at the north coast of Iceland where the company has a large quota of cod fishing.
The building of the hull is already starting up at our shipbuilding partner abroad and the steelhull is expected in Hvide Sande by summer, where all equipment, machinery and fitting will be done.
We are looking very much forward to this exciting task that we are very happy to be selected for!
