The Ronjafisk will be supplied and crewed by Sølvtrans, the world’s biggest wellboat operator, on a five-year contract, and has been fitted out by the Aas Mek. Verksted yard at Vestnes, Norway.
The boat has a shallow draft in relation to its load capacity of 2,500m³, and can transport smolts and post-smolts to areas which can be difficult to access by vessels with a deeper draft.
It has been designed under Sølvtrans’ circulation principle, with lateral circulation in the cargo spaces specifically intended for closed transport.
The boat is arranged for transport of smolts and harvesting fish in open and closed systems, as well as freshwater treatment for delousing and for use as a service vessel for fish farms.
The boat is also equipped with a filtering and ultra-violet (UV) system for water purification for smolt transport, delousing and treatment of all discharges into the sea.
The boat has accommodation for 12 people in one and two-person cabins with a toilet and shower, TV, music system and sofas.
The vessel also has a well-equipped mess and galley, a coffee shop by the work deck, and a TV lounge and exercise room.
The bridge is arranged with three operator positions for manoeuvring the boat, remote control system for operation and monitoring of all systems, and remote control of all cargo and fish handling.
