Bakkafrost has made an agreement with Havila Shipping in Norway regarding purchase of the vessel ”Havila Princess”. The new ship will operate as a service vessel taking care of different assignments within sea farming.
The vessel is 73.5 m long and 16.6 m wide, has 2 propellers for propulsion and has 2 bow and stern thrusters. The vessel is equipped with Dynamic Positioning and has a considerable work-deck of 704 m2. The intention is equipping the vessel with a system for delousing of salmon using warm seawater. With this investment, Bakkafrost’s capacity for delousing of salmon without the use of medical treatment will increase considerably.
We expect the ship to be ready for operation shortly after the beginning of next year.
The name of the ship is planned to be ”Martin”.
