Havyard delivers sixth wellboat in Havtrans series

Havyard Leirvik has delivered the last of six wellboats, Åsværfjord, to Frøy Group, a subsidiary of Norway’s listed aquaculture corporate, NTS ASA. Built to a ‘Havtrans’ design, the vessel has a capacity of 3,250m3 in three circular tanks, enabling more live fish to be transported in calmer conditions, enhancing welfare. The hull form has been designed for good seakeeping, fuel economy and minimum emissions.

Completion of the last vessel in the series opens a new chapter for the shipyard. It will now focus on ship modifications, conversions and repairs.

The yard’s managing director, Tor Leif Mongstad, said that the yard is well-placed for such work. It has a covered drydock and can therefore work through the winter and is well-placed to support the green transition, supporting offshore wind farms and the country’s ferry sector.

“We have delivered positive results on the projects we have had, and received great feedback from customers. We are measured by the quality and time it takes to get the job done,” he said.
