New fisheries research ship

New fisheries research ship
The German Bundestag has approved an ?11m order for a new and bigger fisheries research ship to be built at the specialist Fassmer Shipyard for delivery 2011.

The German Bundestag has approved an ?11m order for a new and bigger fisheries research ship to be built at the specialist Fassmer Shipyard for delivery 2011.

Cornelius Hammer, head of the Institute for Baltic Fisheries, said the new ship would be called Clupea, the Latin name for herring, and replace an old ship of the same name. Tanya Geik of the Federal Institute for Agriculture and Food (BLE), which will manage the new vessel, told MJ the vessel will be 28.8m long, 7.7m wide and draw 2.28m.

Although no engine or equipment details were initially given, Geik said the newbuild would have 577 kW of propulsive power for a speed of 10 knots. Of some 250grt, it will have a bollard pull of 80 kN.

Christopher Zimmermann at the Johann Heinrich von Thünen Institute (vTI) in Rostock, for which the new ship will conduct research into fish stocks, mainly in the Baltic, said the dimensions were still not exact but that the draught needed to be around 2.3m to enable the ship to enter ports and access coastal flats. It will also carry different net types and fish catching equipment and offer research equipment and facilities.

Zimmermann told MJ original plans had been for a ship of 26.8 m length and 7.2 m beam but that stability had been an issue at that size.

The new ship will replace the 17m cutter Clupea, the country"s longest in service and smallest fisheries research ship. Built in the former GDR, it is due for retirement in 2011 after 60 years service. The old Clupea is of 46grt and 5.12m wide with a maximum draught of 2.42m. It is driven by a Buckau Wolf 6NVD 24 engine providing 8.5 knots.

The BLE said the order was also a contribution towards helping to strengthen the currently depressed German coastal shipbuilding industry.
