Turkey’s Cemre delivers Norwegian LNG-powered fishing vessel

Turkish shipbuilder Cemre has handed over an LNG-powered vessel to Norwegian fishing company Teige Rederi.

Cemre said in a statement on Friday it had delivered the purse seiner/pelagic trawler, Sunny Lady.

Designed by Salt Ship Design and classed by DNV, the 86.5 meters long purse seiner/pelagic trawler is the second in the world to feature LNG-powered propulsion and a battery pack, after Libas, Cemre claims.

The yard and Teige Rederi signed the shipbuilding contract for this hybrid ship back in September 2019.

After that, Cemre launched the LNG-powered Sunny Lady in November 2021.

It features a 350 cbm LNG tank and 1000 kWh battery power that would be used at peak shaving operations and regenerating energy, the shipbuilder said.

Besides Libas and Sunny Lady, Cemre is building another Norwegian LNG-powered fishing vessel.

Cemre launched the LNG-powered vessel, Selvag Senior, for Norway’s Sorheim Holding in August this year.
