Rolls-Royce gets a repeat Sølvtrans AS order for the design & propulsion package of a ship developed specifically for transporting live fish.

The first ship is due for delivery in June this year and this latest contract also includes options to build two more vessels of the same type.
Monrad Hide, Rolls-Royce, General Manager - Fishing Vessels said: "This new vessel will be built according to the same specifications as the first with a high level of technology and environmental solutions. Our innovative hull design ensures cost effective operations and fuel efficiency as well as low emissions to air and sea."

The live fish carrier can take in up to approximately 400 tonnes of live fish. In order to transport live fish efficiently and in a healthy condition from fish farms to fish processing plants on shore, spacious temperature controlled tanks are required in the hold of the ship. The priority for this type of operation is to get the fish to the end consumer as fresh as possible, and this specifically tailored Rolls-Royce ship design, makes this possible.

The vessels, which are of Rolls-Royce NVC 386 design, feature an advanced diesel-electric propulsion system including two Rolls-Royce Bergen C6 diesel engines and a hybrid shaft generator which significantly reduces energy consumption on board. Considerable emphasis has also been placed on living quarters and working environment for the crew in order to enhance crew comfort during long periods at sea.

The vessel will be built at the Zamakona shipyard in Spain, with expected delivery in early 2014 for the effective order, and late 2014 and mid 2015 for the options.
