Northern Hawk to be equipped with the PARAT MSH Steam Boiler during overhaul in 2012.
PARAT Halvorsen AS has been awarded an order for an 8000 kgs/h Steam Boiler Plant to be installed in the factory trawler, Northern Hawk, which is owned by the United States fishing company, Coastal Villages Pollock, LLC.
Northern Hawk is a Stern Trawler, built by the shipyard Ulstein Hatlø in 1990. PARATs delivery is a retrofit of the existing boiler plant, designed to meet the needs of the on-board fishmeal plant and vessel heating system. The new boiler plant will be delivered with the latest technology for burning fish oil.
Northern Hawk, whose homeport is Chevak, Alaska, will be docked in Seattle in April of 2012 for the installation of the boiler plant, and for general maintenance and repair. Northern Hawk is a sophisticated commercial fishing vessel that operates in the waters of the Bering Sea harvesting Alaska pollock.
Northern Hawk is operating mainly in Alaska’s Bearing Sea, harvesting white fish like Pollock, Hake and Cod.
