Norwegian shipyard Aas Mekaniske Verksted has awarded PG Flow Solutions a deal to deliver pump systems to a new vessel the yard is building for wellboat company, Sølvtrans.

PG Flow Solutions will deliver eight of the company’s large seawater circulation pumps that ensure continuous seawater circulation in the boat’s well. Additionally, the company will supply all engine room pumps that are required for the main engine and support engines, plus generic pump requirements for operating the wellboat.

Øyvind Berg, vice president of sales and marketing at PG Flow Solutions, sees the new order as confidence in the company’s ability to deliver. “The relationship between Sølvtrans and Aas Mek, which is now building the 32nd vessel for the former, is obviously rock solid,” he said.

The wellboat is newbuild number 204 from Aas Mekaniske Verksted and will have storage capacity of 2,500m³, equivalent to 375 tonnes of live fish. The newbuild vessel will be 69.69m long and 17.80m wide and depth moulded is 5.90m.

PG Flow Solutions’ seawater circulation pumps are designed to ensure the best possible animal welfare and can be maintained by the vessel’s crew without support from an external service technician.

Delivery of the vessel is scheduled for October 2020.
