Karstensen Shipyard Poland is not slowing down. After the last launch in December, and a total of 7 launchings in 2020, the new year at the Gdynia shipyard began with the launch of another large fishing vessel, which was ordered by the Danish shipowner Rederiet Ruth A / S.

The Ruth pelagic trawler is nearly 90 meters long and 17 meters wide. The main drive power will be approx. 5000 kW. The vessel will be commissioned in June after final equipment at Karstensens Skibsværft in Denmark. The ship was designed by Karstensens Skibsværft A / S.

The launching took place in stages on January 16-17. In the first phase, the vessel was transported, using self-propelled carts, from the quay to the barge-pontoon. Then the set was towed to dock number 4 of Nauta Remontowa Shipyard and after entering the dock, the final launch of the hull weighing 2300 tons took place. Currently, the vessel is moored at the Hungarian Quay, where it will be prepared for hauling to Denmark.

Currently, several more vessels are being built at the Karstensen Shipyard Poland shipyard. The development of so many shipbuilding sites in a short period of time is a major production and logistical challenge. In 2020, Karstensen launched as many as 7 fishing vessels in Gdynia. 2021 promises to be just as busy.

Karstensen Shipyard Poland is a subsidiary of the Danish shipyard Karstensens Skibsværft A / S. The shipyard builds ships at the Port of Gdynia, in a modern production facility acquired from Vistal Offshore. The plant is located at the Indian Quay, and it was put into operation in 2013. It is adapted to the production of hulls, consists of two well-equipped, modern halls with dimensions: 200x30x30m and 150x30x20 m, as well as adjacent offices and facilities for staff. Karstensen officially took over the facility on July 1, 2018, under a three-year lease agreement.
