Newbuilding 466 “CHRISTIAN Í GRÓTINUM” was handed over to owners family Rasmussen og Klaksvík, Faroe Islands on 4 March 2022 from Karstensen Shipyard.
The hull for “CHRISTIAN Í GRÓTINUM” was built by Karstensen Shipyard Poland in Gdynia, and arrived in Skagen in July 2021.

New “CHRISTIAN Í GRÓTINUM” replaces Bogi Rasmussens previous command of the same name. In addition to the new vessel, the owners also operates the pelagic freezer “NORDBORG”, commanded by Jón Rasmussen.
Design principles for main engine / auxiliary arrangement are as follows:
Vessel is fitted with a 7320 kW main engine, connected to one reduction gearbox, driving one propeller. Shaft alternator of 3300 kW is fitted to gearbox PTO.
To supply additional electric power, the vessel is fitted with 2 auxiliary engines / gen-sets, producing 1348 respectively 940 kWe as well as a harbour gen-set of 200 kW.
During heaving/shooting operations at fishing, when the winch system is in use, the shaft alternators will be engaged, and electric power will be supplied from here. When there is demand for full power on the winch(es), there will normally not be same demand for power on the propulsion system. Following the main engine will be power source for both propulsion and hydraulic system.
All electrical power systems are controlled by the vessels DEIF Power-Management-System. Further on bus-bar breaker is fitted in main switchboard, allowing aft thrusters to be fed off shaft alternator and forward thruster and vessels hotel load off the diesel generator set.
Electrical power system is fitted for sliding frequency (60-50 Hz), by means of frequency converters for 400/440 V and UPS clean power static supply/converter for 230 V. This will allow main engine and propeller rpm to be reduced with 17%.
