Rolls Royce to provide eco-friendly live fish transporter vessel for Norwegian shipowners

Rolls-Royce has won its first order for a new ship developed specifically for transporting live fish. Norwegian ship owner Sølvtrans AS, the world’s largest transporter of live fish, is the first customer for this advanced, fuel efficient vessel.

In order to transport live fish efficiently and in a healthy condition, customers require spacious, temperature controlled tanks in the hold of the ship.  This new, specifically tailored design makes that possible.

Monrad Hide, Rolls-Royce, General Manager - Fishing Vessels said: “The live fish carrying market is a growing one ... This vessel marks a new era for this specialist segment of the fishing industry and we’re delighted that Sølvtrans has chosen our design and equipment.”

The new Rolls-Royce NVC 386 design incorporates the Group’s latest developments in hull design to ensure fuel efficiency, cost-effective operations and stability. The vessel features an advanced diesel-electric propulsion system including two Bergen C 6 diesel engines and a hybrid shaft generator which significantly reduces energy consumption on board.

Rolls-Royce designs and equips an extensive range of vessel types for the fishing industry ranging from large freezer trawlers to longliners and bulk carrying vessels. There are currently more than 100 Rolls-Royce designed vessels operating in global fishing fleets.

Considerable emphasis has been placed on the living quarters and working environment for the crew.  In order to enhance crew comfort during long periods at sea, the NVC 386 features eight single cabins, a fitness centre and a sauna.

The vessel will be built at the Zamakona shipyard in Spain, with expected delivery in mid 2013.
