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 mf@pelagisk.dk 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.
