Damen Gets Aquaculture Utility Vessel Deal in Norway

Damen Shipyards Group signed a contract with Norway-based VOLT Service AS for a Utility Vessel (UV) 4312 to be delivered in Q1 2018.

The vessel, to be named VOLT Processor, will undertake delousing operations and other services at Norwegian salmon farms.

Remøy Management AS has been involved in the development of the project and will perform the building supervision. Remøy Management will be the manager of the vessel when delivered.

The UV 4312 follows on from Damen’s smaller model – the UV 2410. The 43 meters model has been optimised for the aquaculture industry. The ship corresponds to the latest techniques in salmon delousing.

The combination of the UV 4312 with the latest delousing techniques results in a highly mobile delousing vessel able to service more farms in a larger region and in more open waters, Damen explains.

Even T. Remøy, CEO of Remøy Management, said: “We turned to Damen as we have good experience with them. They were able to accommodate all the requirements we had for our vessel. Furthermore, they were able to offer us a very quick turnaround of the project so that we could get underway with our operations in the quickest possible timeframe.”

Co-founder of VOLT Service, Robert Søviknes, said: “With the new vessel we will have a unique platform and a tool to provide the industry with a cost efficient alternative due to increased mobility and a newly developed total concept package for the services offered. The solutions are focused on fish welfare.”
