Traction in the global fishing vessel market continues to grow, as Kleven signed a contract with Norway’s  Sølvtrans on the delivery of a live fish carrier vessel. The vessel is to be delivered from Myklebust Verft in September 2017. This is the second order from Sølvtrans on a vessel of the same NVC 387 design from Rolls-Royce – the first vessel will be delivered from Myklebust Verft in March 2017.  Sølvtrans is one of the world’s largest transporter of live fish.  The 80 m long vessels will have a load capacity of 3200 m3 each, and its three tanks can take in up to approximately 500 tonnes of live fish in total.
