Herøy-based shipping company orders a specialised live fish transport vessel from Havyard Ship Technology's yard in Leirvik, Norway.

Delivery of the first ship is due in January 2014 with the option for delivery of a similar ship six months later. Each wellboat has an estimated value of NOK 250 million.

The Havyard 587 design has three large cylinder tanks for live fish with a capacity of 3250 cubic. The wellboat is nearly 85 metres long and has accommodation for 12 persons.

According to designer Kjetil Myren of Havyard Design & Engineering (HDE), the Havyard 587 will have the ultimate equipment within wellboat technology onboard, setting a whole new standard for environmental and gentle transport and excellent treatment of live fish.

The cylindrical cargo tanks and the efficient filter- and water treatment equipment make it possible to succeed with sealed transport across longer distances compared to existing boats. The tanks can also serve and hold an increased fish density within.

Hull lines and propulsion machinery, a medium-sized main engine with considerably reduced fuel consumption compared to a high-speed engine, are all designed for a high top speed and fuel economic average speed, says Myren, who adds that a catalytic converter has also been installed onboard. The wellboat will do a maximum speed of 14 knots fully loaded, and emission per kilogram of carried fish is extremely low.

In order to prevent emissions and to minimize risk of contamination, all water is going to be UV-treated and to go through a complicated two-step filter system. The wellboat will be outfitted with a system for delousing all fish onboard and the filter system will remove and destroy all lice from salmon. These systems result in an extremely low mortality rate of fish during freight, informs CEO Olav Remøy of Fosnavaag Shipping
