Ocean Star

Ocean Star

A new pelagic fishing trawler ordered by Scottish owner Mewstead LLP will be built according to a Wärtsilä design and will feature a broad scope of Wärtsilä propulsion machinery. 

The ship is to be built at the Nauta Shipyard in Poland and when completed will be the largest and most efficient ship of its type in the world. The contract with Wärtsilä was signed in November. Delivery of the vessel is scheduled for mid-2017. The decision to choose the Wärtsilä ship design was based on the high level of efficiency derived from the optimised hull lines. This optimisation, together with Wärtsilä’s highly efficient integrated engine and propulsion solution, results in far lower fuel consumption than would otherwise be possible. 

“This will be a very large and extremely modern fishing vessel and it is important that the design and the equipment driving the vessel also feature the very latest and best technologies. We are confident that the Wärtsilä design and equipment solutions fully meet our needs,”

M Michael Tait, owner of the vessel
