The Chilean owner Naviera Orca has ordered a live fish carrier from Larsnes Mek and is designed by Skipskompetanse.
– The new vessel will be a cornerstone to ensure the fish’s well-being in a cost-optimal way, says CEO of Naviera Orca.
The live fish carrier’s design is built on the latest newbuild for Rostein, currently being towed to Larsnes for outfitting.
The vessel will have the latest in equipment for zero emissions during closed transport with monitoring and purification of water. It will have a filter system for collecting lice, UV treatment of water in and out of the cargo holds as well as automatic washing and disinfection systems.
Necessary in Chile
– The vessel, the technology, the efficiency and the size is just right for our industry at the moment, and will be a cornerstone to ensure the fish’s well-being. This is the kind of technology needed in Chile, says CEO of Naviera Orca, Ezequias Alliende in a statement.
