Research Vessel Launched for Angolan Fisheries Ministry
Baía Farta boasts a number of state-of-the-art features, the builder said. The FRV has Silent A/F/R Class notation. Close attention is being paid to the design, construction and outfitting of the vessel in order to minimize noise and vibration both on board and underwater.
Baía Farta features a basic design from Skipsteknisk. Her construction has been an international project, involving input from Damen Shipyards Gorinchem and Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding in the Netherlands, with building taking place at Damen Shipyards Galati in Romania.
The Angolan Ministry of Fisheries is a long-standing client of Damen, having previously taken delivery of two 62-meter Fishery Inspection Vessels 6210 and a smaller FRV 2808.
