Rolls-Royce announced today that it has signed a contract for the delivery of design and equipment for a live fish carrier, to be built at the Tersan shipyard in Turkey for Faroese ship owner Bakkafrost. The contract is worth approximately £5.8 million to Rolls-Royce.

The vessel is a Rolls-Royce design, type NVC 386, featuring the characteristic wave-piercing bow designed to cut through waves in rough seas, making it possible to keep a more constant speed, reduce fuel consumption and increase onboard safety.

The vessel will have a length of 75.80 meters, a breadth of 16 meters and a carrying capacity of 3,000 cu. M; this capacity corresponds to approximately 450 metric tons of live fish. When entering into service, the vessel will operate for Bakkafrost’s own fish-farming industry, transporting live fish from fish farms into on-shore processing factories.

On board, the fish will be kept in three holds constructed for the optimum transportation of live fish, with full pump-circulation capacity in a closed circuit. The system also provides for the full filtering of water, with separate systems for loading all tanks simultaneously and pressurized discharge to shore. A high capacity system for de-licing will also be installed.

In addition to design and engineering, Rolls-Royce will deliver an integrated equipment package including a diesel-electric propulsion system and two Bergen C6 engines.

The crew’s living quarters and working environment have also been an area of focus during the design process, resulting in seven single cabins, a spacious saloon with separate dining area, a fitness centre and a sauna.

In October the Norwegian ship owner Sølvtrans took delivery of a live fish carrier from the Zamakona shipyard in Spain and has a second vessel under construction, which makes this the third live fish carrier order for Rolls-Royce.
