New ship: Nororn

I've based this new ship in the Nororn, a norwegian fishing vessel. This vessel is a somewhat special kind of ships designed to fish in the artic regions, so it's a modern ship equipped with the latest thermal and humidity isolating control systems.

The real specifications for this ship are (taken from
Length: 60,50 m
Beam (~"width"): 14,00 m
Draught (~"height"): 6,545 m
Cargo capacity: 1193 m3
Max. speed: 15 knots (~28 Km/h)
Engine power: 2940 kW

This ship has been coded into Simutrans as a modern fishing ship, which has to fill the timeline gap between 1964 and end of the game, despite in real life this ship was built much later.
