A second live fish carrier for Norwegian operator Nordlaks has been launched at the Tersan Shipyard in Turkey, built to an NSK design.
The 84 metre LOA by 19 metre breadth Harald Martin is the second LNG hybrid propulsion live fish carrier to be built at the yard for Nordlaks, with the first of the pair, Bjørg Pauline, due for delivery later this year.
Both feature highly advanced fish handling systems, making them among the most sophisticated such vessels of their kind.
“This live fish carrier, which is a vital milestone for the aquaculture sector and is built to very high standards, also represents our strong and future partnership with Nordlaks as well as with Norway,” stated Tersan’s general manager Mehmet Gazioğlu.
“We are proud of this vessel built for Nordlaks. This vessel has significance for our shipyard and country. Like its sister ship, this will be one of the pioneering vessels in which a number of new and environmentally conscious technologies are being applied. Thanks to all stakeholders, suppliers and mainly to our employees who have put efforts in it to become true. We are looking for the successful delivery of Harald Martin, on time and on budget by the beginning of 2021.”
