GONDAN Shipbuilders is a family owned company with more than 90 years of experience in the sector. Located in Asturias, north of Spain, the company has facilities for Steel and GRP construction. It is recognised by its ability to build any type of vessel, without technological limits, but having the flexibility to incorporate improvements during the construction process to meet the needs of the shipowner and, furthermore, meeting the strictest quality standards.
With extensive experience in the fishing sector, especially in stern trawlers, currently GONDAN Shipbuilders is building two advanced freezing Stern Trawlers of more 70 meters length for Norwegian shipowners with Kongsberg Maritime design.
The first one, to be delivered at the end of this summer, has a length of 77.3 m and a beam of 17 m. It is being built for Prestfjord AS, Norway’s second largest fish producer. It will operate in Arctic areas, in the Barents Sea and Svalbard waters for cod and prawns, as well as their processing. For this, it will have the most modern and automated fish processing equipment, including a meal plant, and a total hold capacity of 2250 m3.
The second one is being built for Engenes Fiskeriselskap AS, a Norwegian shipowner choosing GONDAN to build its first vessel in Spain. It will operate mainly in Northern Atlantic, Barents Sea and Svalbard waters. With an accommodation for 29 people, the freezing trawler will be operated for heading, gutting and freezing of whole white fish. It will have a freezing hold capacity of 1400 m3.
