Brunvoll Propulsion for Three Vessels at Karstensens

Brunvoll has signed two contracts with Karstensen Shipyard for the delivery of propulsion and maneuvering equipment for three vessels. Two of the vessels are for the ship owner, Faroe Origin, and Brunvoll will supply the main propulsion. The third vessel is for an undisclosed owner and the contract consists of two tunnel thrusters.

The vessels will be Karstensens Shipyard newbuild No. 486 and 487. Brunvoll are delivering the main propulsion system with BruCon PTC, Brunvoll’s Propulsion and Thruster Control system. The propeller is optimized to achieve a high thrust in trawling condition and are connected with Brunvoll ACG750 gearbox with a Power-Take-Out(PTO).

The vessel will have an overall length of 44.1 meters and a breadth of 11.5 meters. The vessels are scheduled to be delivered in the first and second quarter of 2026.

The second contract is for Karstensens Shipyard’s newbuild No. 500 for an undisclosed owner. Brunvoll will supply the vessel with two tunnel thrusters of the FU74 type, BruCon PTC, electric motors and starters.

“These smaller trawlers require versatile and compact propulsion solutions. The propeller and reductions gearbox chosen for these vessels are exactly that. A propeller with a large diameter and the right gear ration gives a high bollard pull on low effect. This gearbox solution allows also the PTO to run power to the main switchboard without the propeller is running.” Says Geir Arne Kaspersen, VP Sales.
