Larsnes Mek Verksted has been contracted to build a 79.27 metre by 15 metre beam live fish carrier for Rostein AS, which will be the yard’s newbuild no 71 and the tenth in this Skipskompetanse-designed series.
It will have a 2800 cubic metre capacity and the arrangement is for both open and closed transport of fish and smolts. Accommodation will be for twelve persons.

The vessel will be equipped with the latest technology and have zero emissions during closed transport with monitoring, purification of water circulations, UV treatment of water in and out of the hold.
With automatic washing and disinfection system, regulation, and logging of water parameters the vessel will be sustainable and environmentally friendly.
The Tier III engine room setup and other technologies on board are designed to minimise fuel consumption and reduce emissions.
