Alewijnse Vietnam completes first of three fishing trawlers for Shipbuilding Asia


Alewijnse Marine has completed the full electrical installation for the new-build fishing trawler Atlantic Titan at the Ha Long Shipyard. The ultra-modern fishing vessel is the first of an order for the electrical fit-out of three fishing boats that Alewijnse Marine has received from the British company Shipbuilding Asia Ltd UK.

Alewijnse is delivering a complete electrical installation and integration package for the Atlantic Titan and her two sister-ships. “We are designing and supplying almost all the electrical equipment on board, including the switchboards and consoles”, Alewijnse Vietnam Director Daniel Pop explains. “In addition, we are responsible for the supervision and commissioning of all the electrical systems.”

Choosing Alewijnse
The decision by Shipbuilding Asia to choose Alewijnse Marine for the works is based partly on the presence of the Alewijnse facility in Vietnam, but also on its strong track-record of supporting the nearby Damen shipyard with its specialist skills. “We are very happy to be working with this client,” added Daniel Pop. “We look forward to continuing to grow our business in Vietnam, especially now the shipbuilding industry here is entering a new stage of growth.”

Atlantic Titan
This series of three trawlers represents a new generation of ultra-modern offshore fishing vessels for a Canadian ship owner. They will operate in the waters off Newfoundland. The 29-metre vessels are being equipped with state-of-the-art technology to the highest international standards for sea fishing.

Alewijnse in Vietnam
Alewijnse has extensive experience in the installation of electrical systems for both new build and refits in Vietnam. Working with the Damen Shipyards Group, the company has worked on a wide range of tugs and workboats, as well as sophisticated vessels for the Vietnamese and Australian governments. To meet the demand, in early 2018 Alewijnse Marine opened a new production facility in Haiphong- Vietnam to produce high-quality switchboards and panels.
