Trondheim-40 electric trawler

The 12-meter Trondheim 40 fishing trawler is somewhat different from its class vessels, as it is electric. Power ship installation – electric engine series Deep Blue, capable of delivering 1400 rpm, developed a well-known German company Totqeedo, specializing in the production of boat motors.

The engine is powered by two batteries, providing the ship a six-hour (without recharging) sailing. In addition, on board Trondheim 40 are installed two diesel generators, which are designed exclusively to recharge the batteries during longer swings. This is different from diesel-electric submarines , where diesel plants, in addition, provide a course in the above-water position.

Such an unusual combination provides the trawler with a 30 percent advantage in the range of navigation – up to 4630 km. In addition, modern acoustic insulation by 40% compared to a diesel unit reduces noise, and the generators themselves occupy very little space.

Trawler Trondheim 40 is a six-seater vessel capable of withstanding high waves and strong winds. Its durable metal case ensures safe fishing in shallow, including icy water areas, for example, in Alaska or in the Norwegian fjords.
