Karstensens Shipyard has delivered the new trawler ARTEMIS BF 60 to owners Wiseman Fishing Co and Northbay Fishing Co of Scotland

Newbuild 465 “ARTEMIS” was handed over to owners Wiseman Fishing Co and Northbay Fishing Co of Scotland on 13 September 2022 from Karstensen Shipyard.

The hull for “ARTEMIS” was built by Karstensen Shipyard Poland in Gdynia, and arrived in Skagen in February 2022.

New “ARTEMIS” replaces skipper Adam Wisemans previous command of the same name. The new vessel will operate along the same pattern as the existing vessel, with a traditional pelagic trawl fishery, where target species are mackerel and herring.

Northbay Fishing Company is a subsidiary of Interfish of Plymouth, headed by Jan Colam.

Wiseman Fishing Company is headed and owned by well-known pelagic fishing personality and chairman of Scottish Pelagic Fishermen’s Association (SPFA), Alex Wiseman along with his son Adam Wiseman.

The new 75.80M metre ARTEMIS built by Karstensens Shipyard

Karstensen Shipyard is very proud with the new delivery, which continues long standing working relations with both Mr Colam and Messrs Wiseman. Cooperation between Northbay Fishing Company and Karstensen has been with maintenance and repairs on “Altaire” for a good few years. Cooperation with Alex Wiseman stretches even further back, some 30 years, when “Radiant Star” was in Skagen to do overhauls. Adam and Alex Wiseman also build KS-431 “Kings Cross” in 2016 in Skagen (in partnership with Lunar Fishing).

The vessel design, specification and arrangements is a result of an extensive and close cooperation between owners and yard where all solutions are optimized and tailor made to suit owners and crews specific requirements.

Main focus has been set on optimizing working, safety and comfort for the crew, optimizing catch handling- and storage facilities and optimizing of fuel consumption. In order to reach above targets, the vessel is fitted out with all the newest developed machinery and equipment.

Abaft superstructure trawl deck with 2 net drums in waterfall arrangement in CL and SB net bin, recessed into shelter deck. At transom CL hydraulic stern gate and hydraulic operated guiding pins.

On Boat deck 01, anchor winch is mounted in enclosed space below whaleback. Abaft of this, roll reduction tanks. Boat deck 01 is fully enclosed from stem to aft of superstructure. Forward on Boat deck 01, water separator covered by horse-shoe breakwater structure, which incorporates sampling room and store room as well as foundation for foredeck crane.

On Boat deck 01 abaft midship, deck house in centre. Accommodation in deck house: Day room/lounge mess room and coffee bar, galley with provision room (and separate fridge-/freezer rooms) and stairways and corridors. PS fan room for ventilation for engine rooms and hydraulic pump room, as well as exhaust trunks.

Abaft deck house (on Boat deck 01), 2 off trawl winches. All aft fish pump deck, with fish pump and hydraulic hose reel. Integrated in aft ship construction and boat deck 01 is also trawl gallow, which accommodates 2 main towing blocks as well as tail- and top line blocks. Net sounder winch is fitted on top of gallow.

On boat deck 02, deck house with ventilation room and accommodation. Accommodation contains: 3 officer cabins with en-suite toilet/shower facilities, trim rom, instrument room and stairways and corridors. On PS of deckhouse MOB deck and –davit.

Design principles for main engine / auxiliary arrangement are as follows:

On reduction gearbox, 1 Power-Take-Off, mounted with a shaft alternator, producing 2800 kWe.

To supply additional electric power, the vessel is fitted with 2 auxiliary engines / gen-sets, producing 866 kWe each. In addition a separate harbour gen-set of 200 kWe is fitted.

During heaving/shooting operations at fishing, when the winch system is in use, the gearbox PTO will be clutched in, and electric power will be supplied from the shaft alternator. When there is demand for full power on the winch(es), there will normally not be same demand for power on the main engine. Following the main engine will be power source for both propulsion and hydraulic system.

During normal towing, the shaft alternator will/can be disengaged (from switchboard), and the electrical power will/can be supplied by either of the gen-sets.

The 2 main gen-sets will be able to connect into main switchboard, controlled by the vessels DEIF Power-Management-System. Further on bus-bar breaker is fitted in main switchboard, allowing aft thruster to be fed off shaft alternator and forward thrusters and vessels hotel load off the diesel generator sets.

Electrical power system is fitted for sliding frequency (60-50 Hz), by means of frequency converters for 400/440 V and rotating frequency converter for 230 V. This will allow main engine and propeller rpm to be reduced with 17%.

Further on, the vessel is fitted with a 2-speed gearbox, giving 2 fixed propeller speed steps, ie 138 and 116 rpm.

Above designs and systems ensures an economical running profile of the vessel.

In order to create take-me-home power in case of main engine failure, the vessel is fitted with a clutch between main engine and gearbox. A separate pony motor will allow the shaft generator to start up as an electric motor, being fed off the auxiliary engines. Up to 1500 kW can be used for this diesel-electrical propulsion drive.
