The vessel is designed by Skipskompetanse AS from Måløy and is a further development of build no.67 Ro Sailor. This is the type of technology that is necessary for us in Chile, says a satisfied CEO of Naviera Orca, Ezequias Alliende in a statement. The vessel, technology, efficiency, and size are quite right for our industry at the moment and will be important for good fish health and wellbeing in an optimal way. The vessel is arranged for open and closed transport of harvested fish and smolts, but also has many other capacities, including RSW, freshwater production, and freshwater treatments of salmon. It\s fully equipped and outfitted with the latest technology and is capable of operating in open or closed modes. An elaborate monitoring and logging system will track all vital parameters. During open transportation, all water in and out of the vessel can be filtrated and UV treated, and sea lice filtered out for destruction. An automatic tank cleaning and disinfection system will ensure optimal cleanliness. The vessel has several loading and unloading systems and can, in particular, load and unload fish especially gently, using pressure and vacuum without the use of fish pumps.
