Salt Ship Design has designed a live fish carrier for Alsaker Fjordbruk, a vertically integrated fish farming group.
The vessel will be built by Astilleros de Murueta in Spain and will be delivered from the yard in 2020.
The parties have cooperated for a long time to develop a live fish carrier design based on gentle fish-handling combined with a strong focus on fish welfare, hygiene and quality, the company said.
“It is very exciting and educational to be allowed to cooperate with a team of such first-class fish farming skills and strong commitment. The cooperation with Alsaker and MMC First Process, which will deliver a large fish-handling package, has resulted in a highly efficient vessel with unique operational flexibility,” Salt said.
The new vessel is 90.7 meters long, 18.6 meters wide and has a well capacity of more than 5000 m3.
In addition to design, Salt will deliver complete engineering package to Murueta.
