Launch Two Stern Trawlers At Halifax
Halifax Industries Ltd. and National Sea Products Ltd. recently christened the stern trawler Cape Brier, and both launched and christened a sister ship — Cape Ballard — at the Halifax Shipyards.
The Cape Brier was launched at Halifax Shipyards on December 20, 1980, and was christened by Mrs. Izilda Pittman, wife of Michael Pittman, a captain with National Sea Products Limited.
The Cape Ballard was christened by Mrs. Molly Covert, wife of Frank Covert Sr., a director of National Sea Products Limited.
The Cape Brier and Cape Ballard are the first two in a series of three stern trawlers to be built by Halifax Industries for National Sea Products as a result of a contract signed in December 1979. Construction of the third trawler is underway with the launching scheduled for later this year. The vessels were built in the recently refurbished and modernized steel fabrication facilities at Halifax Shipyards. The wheelhouse of the Cape Brier and the wheelhouse and superstructure of the Cape Ballard were constructed at the Dartmouth Marine Slips facility.
Designed as deepsea stern trawlers for operations in iceinfested waters, the vessels have the following main dimensions: length overall—49.9 meters (163.9 feet) ; breadth molded—11.8 meters (38.7 feet) ; design draft— 4.0 meters (13.1 feet).
The steel hulls are ice-strengthened for operations in compact ice up to a maximum of 2 feet.
The design features a ram-bulbous bow for breaking the ice and ice fins and ice davits to allow continued operations in ice conditions.
The vessels, which can accommodate 18 crew, are designed as fresh fish stern trawlers and have an overhead coil-cooling system to reduce melting of the ice in the approximately 426-cubic-meter insulated fishhold. Extensive winch equipment and nautical systems are features of both vessels.
The main engines are MAK type 8 m 453 AD, 8 cylinder in line, 4-stroke, non-reversible marine diesel with supercharging and direct injection adjusted to operate with a maximum output of 1,470 kw at 600 rpm. The vessels are equipped with a Lohmann and Stolterfoht reduction gearbox type GCM600, 3:1 ratio.
The propeller is a controllablepitch Liaaen type with speed of 200 rpm, diameter 2,750 mm and having four stainless-steel blades working in a "Kort" type nozzle.
