In fact, both the main engine and the auxiliary engines are state-of-the-art, which reduce CO2 emissions into the atmosphere by consuming around 200 liters of diesel per day less than older engines. They also have state-of-the-art cold technology that ensures the correct freezing of the product at a temperature between -25° and -30° for a period of approximately 40/50 days. Likewise, they also have advanced communication systems to ensure the safety and comfort of the between 17 and 20 crew members that each of them embarks.
The first unit of the three new ANAMAR vessels has already been delivered and the remaining two will be operational within a year. Regarding the one already delivered, the Jomafran Segundo ship, of the Pesqueras Jomafran company, has a length of 29.50 meters, a power of 716.08 Kw (973.6 CV) and a tonnage of 281 GT.
