Shetland-based shipowner Ocean Farm Services has ordered a new workboat from Skagen Ship Consulting AS.
The new vessel, the second Skagen newbuild ordered by Ocean Farm Services, will join OFS’ fleet making it the third with the same design as its sister vessel Ocean Apollo (due to be delivered this month) and the already operating Aurora Quest. The newbuild will mostly be carrying out net cleaning for the farming companies. All three vessels were designed by Marin Design, based in Kolvereid, Norway.
The vessel will be built by Skagen Ship Consulting at Etkin Marin in Istanbul, Turkey. Delivery is planned for Q3 2021.
Ocean Farm Services was created through the merger of North Isles Marine Ltd and Aurora Marine Ltd and provides a wide range of services for the fish farming sector.
