Intership orders a second wellboat at Zamakona

Zamakona Yards has received an order from Intership in Norway for a new wellboat to be delivered in the fourth quarter of 2022.

The 76m by 17m wellboat will be built at the facilities of Zamakona in Bilbao, Spain, based on a design by Salt Ship Design. Fish welfare, fish handling and biosecurity are the key priorities.

The chairman of Zamakona, Pedro Garaygordobil said the order strengthened the company’s position as a reputed wellboat builder. “The new contract with Intership is a great success for our company and allows keeping a strong order book for the next two year,” he said.
The 2,500m3 vessel will be equipped with energy recovery solutions and a large battery package to permit hybrid operation and is prepared for a considerably sized reverse osmosis systems. To avoid major depth restrictions the newbuild will have a low operational draught compared to its size.
