132 - Delivery of newbuilding

07.12.16: Yard no. 132 "Antares" has been delivered to its owners. Simek has reached yet another milestone, as this is the first fishing vessel built and delivered from Simek since 2008, when "Lunar Bow - Yard no. 113" was delivered to Lunar Fishing. After the recent turmoil in the oil industry, Simek has returned to its roots in fishing.

Since not having delivered a new fishing vessel since the Lunar Bow in 2008, Simek is staying with fishing vessels, with a new 55 metre Rolls-Royce designed longliner for Norwegian company Veidar under construction for delivery in December 2017, as well as the new 82 metre factory trawler for New Zealand company Sealord, scheduled to be completed in March 2018.

"Antares" of 2016 is also our second delivery to Antares Fishing Company. Simek built the first "Antares", which was delivered in 1978, some 38 years ago.  

We wish the owners good luck entering the market with a new state of the art purser/seiner trawler. Hopefully it will be a huge money maker for its crew and owners.

07.12.16: Bygg nr. 132 "Antares" ble overlevert til rederiet i dag. Dette er nok en milepæl for Simek da dette er den første fiskebåten levert fra Simek siden 2008, da "Lunar Bow - Yard no. 113" ble levert til Lunar Fishing. Etter den siste nedturen i oljemarkedet, har Simek returnert til fiskeri, det som en gang var satsingsområdet for oss. 

Etter leveringen av "Antares", holder Simek seg til fiskeri inntil videre. I 2017 følger bygging av en 55 meter lang line- og garnbåt for det norske rederiet Veidar AS i Ålesund. I 2018 skal vi levere en 82 meter lang fabrikktråler til selskapet Sealord på New Zealand.
