Kleven has signed a contract with DESS Aqua, a joint venture company established by Marine Harvest Norway and Deep Sea Supply, on the building of a fish harvesting vessel for carrying salmon from fish farms to processing plants.

The vessel will be delivered from Myklebust Verft in March 2018, and is of SALT 425 FHV design from Salt Ship Design. The contract also includes an option for a second vessel.

“There is impressive research and development work being done in the fish farming industry, and this is absolutely an interesting market for us to be in,” said Ståle Rasmussen, CEO of Kleven.

“This is a new type of vessel for us, and we look forward to working closely with the ship owner, design company and equipment suppliers on this project,” Rasmussen said.

In addition to this latest contribution to the Myklebust Verft order list, the list also includes five fishing vessel to international owners, and two live fish carriers for a Norwegian owner
