Specialised designer and shipbuilder Vard Holdings Limited has landed a contract for the design and construction of a new live fish transport vessel for Fjordlaks Aqua in Ã…lesund.
The new vessel is to be built to a Vard 8 50 design, scheduled for delivery from Vard Aukra in Norway in the third quarter of 2018. The hull will be built at Vard Braila in Romania.
â€˜Ordering this vessel is a critical part of our strategy to have in-house control of all vital parts of our operations. We highly appreciate the co-operation with Vard and look forward to cooperate on this project, which is of major importance for us,â€™ commented Fjordlaks Aquaâ€™s CEO Roger Hofseth.
The Vard 8 50 is an innovative and modern live fish transport vessel with a flexible diesel-electric propulsion system. With a length of 60.50 metres and a beam of 14 metres, it has been developed for efficient, safe and sustainable operations.
â€˜This contract is in line with Vardâ€™s strategy to expand our broad product portfolio and services for the aquaculture business. I am pleased to welcome Fjordlaks Aqua to Vard, and we look forward to cooperate with their team in this project,â€™ said Vard EVP Magne HÃ¥berg.
