Powerful low weight fish farm cleaning vessel launched
Aquaculture workers will be aided by the launch of a 15m high-pressure cleaning boat for fish farm operations in Norway.
Norway-headquartered Tuco Marine delivered the ProZero HPC vessel to AKVA Group in collaboration with Tuco Marine’s local partner on the fish farming market, Arild Friestad of Boat and Barge AS.
Jonas Pedersen, managing director of Tuco Marine, said: “We are extremely happy to deliver this fantastic vessel and once again prove that our ProZero workboat concept is a great tool for owners seeking top performance and reliability while also taking great care of the crews on board.”
Capable of operating at more than 33 knots, the boat features twin inboard diesel engines connected to a Volvo Penta IPS propulsion system with forward-facing, counter-rotating propellers.
It is built from composite materials which reduces its structural weight in a bid to ensure low maintenance and durability.
Tuco Marine said the vessel’s low weight and efficient propulsion enables easy handling and control, good efficiency and minimal environmental impact.
The reinforced hull structure aims to provide stability, while other notable features include the built-in flush fender system on the vessel's starboard side.
