The rest of the raw material will be used for further processing of oil and fishmeal.

Optimars newest automated solutions will be delivered with the factory, such as semi-automated batching systems, automated freezers, automatic sorting of finished products and automated palletizers.

It is 82.9m in length and 17m in breadth meaning that Sealord’s newest trawler will be the largest factory trawler in New Zealand.

The boats capacity per year is estimated to 20,000 tonnes and will be an extremely efficient fishing- and factory vessel.

It will be built at Simek shipyard in Flekkefjord, Norway and is designed by Skipsteknisk in Aalesund.

The vessel is expected to be delivered at the end of 2017.
