Denmark: Calling fishing vessel designers

by admin

The Danish Fishermen PO and the Danish Pelagic PO are sponsoring a competition to develop the trawler of the future. The vessel must be powered with a carbon neutral source of energy and should be capable of fishing effectively while conforming to Danish capacity regulations. The design should offer a workable solution for the fishery and provide the basis for a prototype vessel. Participants in the contest must present a design or drawings in one of the following three categories:

  • Trawler for the consumer fishery under 24 m
  • Trawler for the consumer fishery over 24 m
  • Trawler for the industrial fishery

The prize for the winning design is DKK 75,000.

Submissions should be sent to on or before 31 December 2021. The winner will be selected by a panel of judges comprising representatives from the ship building industry, research, and fisheries organisations, and will be announced in spring 2022.
