Fishing is one of the most important economic activities in the world. It is a source of employment and wealth for communities and both developed and developing countries. In addition to this, the Port of Vigo is one of the most important fishing ports in Europe.
For achieving the best results in terms of economic, social, and environmental performance, fishing needs the most capable and refined tools, including the latest technologies in terms of engineering ships, energy efficiency, improved productivity, safety and onboard living conditions.
Bearing all this in mind, it has been proposed the project of Sustainable and Humanised Fishing Fleet. This project pretends to design and build the fishing vessels of the future being based on automated, digitised, and environmentally-friendly processes, as well as innovative technology in order to improve productivity, habitability (living conditions), and security.
For the design of the project, two phases of different scope have been established in which several actions were designated to achieve the main objective, the modernization of the fishing fleet. These phases are divided as follows:
Phase 1: Designing new fishing vessels in accordance with the following requirements
· Automation and digitisation of the ship’s operations.
Phase 2: Applying the newly created designs in actual shipbuilding projects
Building the vessel that has been designed in Phase 1 as a pilot project to be tested before being scaled.
Through the implementation of this project, it is expected that:
It is a transversal project within the framework of the Blue Growth Plan to contribute to the objectives of the APV to be a Green, Inclusive and Innovative Port:
