A fishing and fish-processing company out of Seattle has hired Dakota Creek Industries to build one of the most environmentally-friendly and technologically-advanced fishing vessels in the world.
Blue North specializes in frozen-at-sea products. The 191-foot boat was developed for Alaska cod hook-and-line fishing. It was designed by Norwegian company Skipsteknisk AS and should be completed in late 2014. The more than $30 million contract includes an option for a second vessel, which would start construction later this year.
Dakota Creek’s Mike Nelson said construction of the first vessel could begin next month and will probably involve additional hiring.
Blue North president and CEO Kenny Down said he’s proud to be working with Dakota Creek.
“Dakota Creek’s shipyard is the best shipyard in the country, in Blue North’s opinion, to be working with for this modern vessel,” he said. “It has an excellent reputation and is known for its high level of craftsmanship, especially for the skill level of the craftsmen that work at the Dakota Creek shipyard.”
