Repeat order for live fish carrier
Norwegian ship owner Sølvtrans AS has opted for a second live fish carrier vessel to be designed and equipped by Rolls-Royce – the fourth vessel developed by Rolls-Royce for the company.
The NVC 387 type vessel will be built by shipbuilding company Kleven at its Myklebust yard in Norway. The first vessel was contracted in June 2015 at the same yard with expected delivery in March 2017, while the second vessel is scheduled for delivery in September 2017.
The two new 80m long live fish carriers will have a load capacity of 3,200m3 and can each carry up to approximately 500 tonnes of live fish. In order to transport live fish efficiently and in a healthy condition from fish farms to fish processing plants on shore, spacious temperature controlled tanks are required in the hold of the ship. The priority for this type of operation is to get the fish to the end consumer as fresh as possible, and this specifically tailored Rolls-Royce ship design makes this possible.
In addition to ship design and engineering, the delivery from Rolls-Royce includes propulsion systems, rudder and steering gear, power electric systems, automation systems, deck machinery and an advanced propulsion control system.
The characteristic bow shape is carefully designed to optimise cargo hold and minimise resistance in the water, reducing fuel consumption and the ship’s environmental footprint while improving the onboard conditions for crew and fish.
