NB77 with a total of 8.000 m³ load capacity in the fish holds and deadweight of ~12.000t which will be the world's largest live fish carrier.
The new vessel will supplement new and existing customers with new tonnage to cover the increasing demand for treatment- and transport services, especially related to the post-smolts in Western Norway.
The innovative boat design is based on gentle and efficient fish handling in combination with a strong focus on hygiene, environment, and quality. The vessel has several new and exciting design solutions including batteries as energy storage and circular fish tanks. NB77 is designed to keep energy usage at the minimum level.
The successful collaboration between Salt Ship Design and Cemre Shipyard has been strengthened with a new project.
