Turkish shipbuilder Cemre receives order for two fish carriers
Turkish shipbuilder Cemre said it has signed a contract to build two environmentally friendly live fish carriers with Seistar Holding.
The new buildings will be fitted with circular fish tanks developed by the Norwegian SALT Ship Design. The 69.9- and 110-metre-long vessels will be designed in accordance with the rules of the DNV GL class and will bear the Norwegian flag.
According to Cemre, the larger of the two boats, with a total fish holding load capacity of 8,000 cubic meters and a deadweight of approximately 12,000 tons, will be the world's largest live fish carrier.
The new vessels will introduce additional tonnage to new and existing customers in order to meet the growing demand for treatment and transport services, especially post-smolt services in Western Norway.
"These innovative boat designs are based on gentle and efficient fish handling in combination with a strong focus on hygiene, environment and quality. The vessels have several new and exciting design solutions including batteries as energy storage and circular fish tanks. They are designed to keep energy usage at the minimum level," Cemre stated.
