Ship of the Year 2020 goes to a type of vessel where Norway is a world leader in both technology and design, said Minister of Fisheries and Seafood Odd Emil Ingebrigtsen when he handed out the prestigious award in Bergen today.
- The wellboat fleet continues forward, and this year's winner shows that there is a focus on lower emissions and increased safety, says Ingebrigtsen, and praised the founder of the shipping company Rostein; Odd Einar Sandøy, as one of the pioneers of this industry.
The wellboat "Ro Vision" was ordered by Rostein AS and built by Larsnes Mek. Verksted AS and designed by Skipskompetanse AS.
Ro Venture is the sister vessel to Ro Vision and it's the world's second hybrid live fish carrier. The vessel is outfitted in only 4,5 months, and the employee has been done a formidable effort in this challenging time with Covid-19.
The vessel is equipped with a battery package from Siemens, three sets of Yanmar diesel generators as well as RCS NOX cleaning from Emigreen.Read more April, 2020 New contract with Rostein AS
