Egersund Island, part of the AKVA Group, is known as a total supplier of trawling equipment to fishing fleets and equipment for the fish farming industry worldwide; the company's robust and durable workboats are ideal for the aquaculture sector.

Laxar is an up and coming company in the aquaculture sector which is a relatively new industry in Iceland and seen as an area of potentially significant growth. The new boat will go straight into build and, with an 8-week lead time from customer order to delivery, will arrive at the Laxar Reydarfjordur site well in time for Christmas.
