The history of
Antarctic Krill

– A long term krill partner


The transformation

In 2009 we started a complete design package for conversion of former F/V Thorshøvdi (now Antarctic Sea) from general cargo vessel to beam trawler.

This conversion included yard follow-ups.

Now we have 160 000 tons/year of catch rate.

The modernization

Antarctic Sea – L A W R.
We took major steps in modernizing the Antarctic Krill in 2012 and 2014.

The conversion

From 2015 to 2017 we converted our design to a F/V Long Fa variation.

In 2018 we started a research project for development of new technology for trawling technology on Calanus offshore.

This included a complete basic design package for conversion from stern trawler to beam trawler.

NSK Ship Design responsibility:

  • Air technology
  • Ship design integration

Finally we modernized the conversion

From 2017 to 2019 we modernized the F/V Antartic Sea – L A W R.

This included major modernisation of steam and processing related systems.

2019 – F/V Saga Sea minor upgrades of marine systems and processing systems.
