Atlantic Dawn Orders New Trawlers

Atlantic Dawn orders new trawlersAtlantic Dawn Group in Killybegs, Ireland, has ordered two new trawlers based on a design from Salt Ship Design. The new fishing vessels will be built at Cemre Shipyard in Turkey.

The 64 metre trawlers have a beam of 14 metres and Salt Ship Design will deliver a complete design and engineering package for the new fishing vessels.

Atlantic Dawn Group has been working closely with Salt to develop a vessel tailored for their quotas and the areas where the vessel will operate.

For Salt, this represents a very important contract, which adds to an already good order book. Salt has currently 17 vessel designs under construction at Norwegian and foreign shipyards. Unlike the current offshore market, fisheries and fish farming are doing very well and these segments represents an important market for Salt.
