    Havyard signs contract with Norsk Fisketransport AS for building live fish carrier

    Havyard has signed a contract with Norsk Fisketransport AS (NFT) for the building of another Havyard 587 live fish carrier. NFT is owned by NTS ASA, whose principal owners are Torghatten, Namsos Invest and Amble Invest.

    The vessel, which will be newbuild number 127, will be built at Havyard Ship Technology's shipyard in Leirvik in Sogn. The contract is worth just over NOK 300 million, and delivery is scheduled for April 2017, with an option for one more vessel that may be delivered Q1 2018, depending on when the option is exercised. Havyard Design & Solutions will design the vessel and deliver the bridge, automation and electrical engineering, Havyard MMC AS will deliver a big fish handling equipment package, and Norwegian Electric Systems will deliver electrical panels, electric engines etc.


    Chair of the board of NFT, Roger Granheim, who is also Executive Vice President of Torghatten ASA, is full of praise for the collaboration with Havyard and says that it was an easy decision to choose to build yet another Havyard 587 live fish carrier when the need to expand their fleet arose. 'The way in which Havyard has dealt with the challenges encountered in connection with the prototype Havtrans and the building of Namsos shows that Havyard is among the very best at designing and building modern live fish carriers. We strongly believe that the name that Havtrans and Namsos are now building for themselves in the live fish carrier market will get even more of our potential customers interested in the concept. This will be a good thing for both NFT and Havyard,' concludes chair of the board Granheim.

    Build 127 will be the sister ship of build 124, Namsos, which was handed over to NFT from Havyard Ship Technology's yard in Leirvik in Sogn in December of last year. These vessels in turn are a further development of build 117, Havtrans, which has been operational since May 2014.
    Managing director Harry Bøe of NFT says that they have learnt a lot from operating Havtrans and have had a good dialogue with Havyard about improvements to Havtrans, and now to build 127, based on their experience.
