New super-sized wellboat delivered to Sølvtrans

The wellboat Ronja Evolution, Sølvtrans

Sølvtrans, a major global supplier of wellboat services to the aquaculture industry, has taken delivery of a new super-vessel.

The 77 metre long Ronja Evolution (pictured) has been handed over by Norwegian builders Aas Mech and is the seventh vessel it has on order for Sølvtrans.

This latest vessel has a capacity of 3,000 cubic metres, which means it can carry around 450 tonnes of live fish.

Sølvtrans now has a fleet of around 35 vessels in service in Norway and in countries around the world including Scotland.

The Ronja Evolution has a system which allows for zero emissions during closed transport and a filter system which allows for the separation of lice when de-licing operations are taking place.

All waste water from the lice filter is run through separate filters for separation of dry matter/lice and further UV treatment of the purified waste water. All lice are collected in containers that are destroyed on board or delivered ashore.

Sølvtrans was established in 1986 with a rebuilt freighter that had a cargo capacity of 208 cubic metres. The term Ronja, which the prefix on all its vessel, is named after the founder’s two children Robin and Anja.

Today it describes itself as the world’s leading provider of critical wellboat services for a growing aquaculture industry.
