Båtbygg AS has placed an order with Teknotherm for a complete ammonia freezing system for Austral Fisheries new longline fishing vessel. The vessel is designed by Marin Teknikk AS for operation in the Antarctic Ocean, surrounded by some of the world’s harshest weather conditions.
The newbuild no. 009 and named “Austral Odyssey” will have a length of 70 meters and a breadth of 14.6 meters. Delivery of ship will be in December 2025.
Freezing-in of products will be by blast freezers and plate freezers, all served by the ammonia freezing machinery which will also keep the storage hold and bait hold at low temperature.
Austral Fisheries owns and operates one of Australia’s largest fleets of fishing vessels. The fleet consists of 18 vessels with different areas of operation and catch. From toothfish in the south, to prawns and tropical reef fish in the north. Austral Fisheries took delivery of the fishing vessel MS “Cape Arkona” from Båtbygg AS in 2020, which also features a complete freezing system from Teknotherm, and we are proud to once again be chosen as a supplier to Båtbygg and Austral Fisheries.
