Other key features of the trawler will be DNV classified and ice classed, with operational efficiency, low emissions, crew comfort, and safety importance criteria in the development of the vessel design. The vessel is expected to operate in the Northern Atlantic, Barents Sea, and Svalbard region, where it will undertake bottom trawling as well as pelagic trawling.
