The Norwegian shipowner Frøy Rederi has contracted Cflow Fish Handling AS (Cflow) to deliver a complete fish handling system to what will become the world’s largest wellboat.
Currently, the wellboat is being under construction at Sefine Shipyard in Turkey, which is also Cflow’s contracting party.
In cooperation with Frøy Rederi and Møre Maritime, Cflow has designed a new and innovative wellboat concept with several new solutions for the future aquaculture industry. The concept’s primary focus over several years has been maximum fish welfare for a future-oriented and sustainable industry.
The new wellboat will be 83.72 m long with a 30.9 m beam and will have a storage capacity of 7500 m3, which is the world’s largest storage capacity when it comes to wellboats.
Cflow will deliver a complete system for handling of live fish, including large sliding bulkheads for the vessel’s storage area. The equipment will be delivered during 2020 and early 2021. Cflow has not unveiled the value of the contract, but states that it is the largest single contract in the company’s history.
