Intership has ordered a new wellboat and entered into a long-term contract with Mowi, operating in Eastern Canada.
The new vessel will have a total capacity of 2,200m3 and will be delivered during the first quarter of 2022.
Ole Peter Brandal, chief executive of Intership, said, “We are delighted to add a newbuild to our fleet and furthermore renew our confidence with our long-standing customer Mowi. When the vessel is delivered we will have two wellboats operating on the east coast of Canada, both for the same customer.”
The new wellboat will be built by Spanish shipyard Zamakona Yards Bilbao, based on a design from NSK Ship Design. In addition to promoting good fish health and reducing the spread of disease, the vessel will be equipped with a fully integrated reverse osmosis system and a large production capacity relative to the well volume.
Intership has operated freshwater treatments with vessel produced freshwater onboard the Inter Caledonia since 2016, and this new vessel will become the company’s second vessel with a freshwater treatment system.
