Norway-based independent ship design firm Salt Ship Design has unveiled a hybrid powered fishing vessel design fuel by liquefied natural gas (LNG).
The 86-metre long Libas will be built with a 350 cubic metre capacity LNG fuel tank, along with a large battery pack, at the Cemre Shipyard in Turkey.
"The Lie family, through their company Liafjord AS, has again thought far ahead when building the new Libas. This time, it is the environment that will benefit from the exciting shipping company from Sotra, Norway," it says.
"More than a year ago, Salt Ship Design AS got the assignment of developing a fishing vessel unlike every already built fishing vessel.
"After a long development phase, both parties are proud to present the first sketches of the new Libas."
The ship will be equipped as a purse seiner, and designed for both single and double trawling. Final clarifications of equipment are still pending.
