Sener has converted a ship that in origin offered fish-farming services, into a workboat to give oil, water, cargo and antipollution services complying with MARPOL.

The barge, El Faralló Dos, was originally designed and built to offer aquafarming services, for the transport of alevins and fishes between the fish-farm cages and the port. This transport was carried out by means of four holds in the midship. The barge was fitted with all the machinery and services to carry out the fish operations and the ice production.

The work developed by Sener was the engineering and building assistance of the barge adaptation to offer MARPOL antipollution services, with a maximum collection of 41 m3. The ship will also offer potable water to ships, so the ballast tanks in the barge has been modified to comply with this new requirement. The new capacity of potable water is 128 m3. Between others, there has been adapted the fire-fight and security systems in accordance with the Unmanned Engine Room Regulation.
