The new Live Fish Carrier is equipped with 2 Brunvoll Tunnel Thrusters with 600kW and 800kW. Head of new builds at Havyard, Børge Lorentzen, says; "I can guarantee that Namsos will not be our last newbuild, and, as things stand now, our next one will also be based on this concept."




Havyard states:"This provides optimal conditions for the salmon both during transport and when we carry out delousing and other jobs. In addition, the salmon can swim in similar surroundings to those they are used to from the circular cages. In circular tanks, the salmon do not have to "hit the wall", and they show no signs of stress after their stay on board the vessel. Havyard 587's hull and propulsion system are also very economical in terms of fuel consumption. We can carry three times as much salmon with Havtrans and Namsos as older boats without having to use more fuel. Naturally, this benefits our customers and, not least, it represents a big environmental gain."
