The wellboat is 116 metres long and 23 metres wide. The vessel can hold 7,450m³  of water in the fish tanks, which is more than twice as much as existing large wellboats.

In addition, the shipping company Søvtrans’s new flagship will be able to carry 5,000m³ of fresh water.

The Ronja Storm will later be towed to Norway to be completed at Havyard. After the ship is delivered for the summer, it will enter into a ten-year contract for the salmon farming company Huon in Tasmania, Australia.
