NSK design for LNG fueled hybrid live fish carrier

Nordlaks builds the world’s first wellboat with LNG propulsion and battery pack.

Nordlaks uses new technology as they build their second wellboat. It provides significant environmental and climate benefits. Emissions of CO2 are reduced by 30% and 90% for NOx. The wellboat will carry live salmon and trout for Nordlaks.

The vessel is designed by NSK Ship Design in Harstad and will be built in Turkey at Tersan Shipyard. The wellboat will be 84 meters long and 19 meters wide. It will be equipped with state-of-the-art technology for handling fish and water quality. The wellboat will have the capacity to carry over 600 tonnes of live salmon and has very good facilities for the crew.

Water quality, fish welfare and the environment have been the focus in the development process. The wellboat is also designed to operate at aquaculture facilities in more exposed waters, such as Nordlak’s future Havfarms.
