New contract signed with NCS AS

Grovfjord Mek. Verksted has signed a contract with NCS AS from Silsand to build a fish farming catamaran, customised for washing trawl nets.

The boat will be similar to bnr 98 – the “Julie Sofie” – which we delivered to Wilsgård Fiskeoppdrett in the autumn of 2013, but it will have a bigger pilot house and/or deck house. Bnr 117 has main dimensions of 14.99 x 8.4 metres and will be equipped with a crane with a capacity of 50 tonne-metres and three cams with capacities of 5, 3 and 1 tonne respectively. In addition, the boat has been readied for the subsequent installation of a 40 tonne winch. The boats have a large pilot house with a seat grouping and kitchenette, a large galley and mess, 3 cabins, two toilet and shower rooms, a changing room and a drying room and workshop. In the pilot house, positions are installed for the operation of washing rig and ROV monitoring.

Bnr 117 shall be delivered in the summer of 2015.
