Zamakona books order for live fish transport vessel

Zamakona-Yards-Projects C714 C715MARCH 27, 2013 — Norway's Sølvtrans Holdings ASA has signed a new contract with the Spanish shipyard Zamakona Yards for the construction of a new 3,200 cu.m well boat (live-fish transporter). Delivery is scheduled for early 2014.

The vessel is a sister ship of Rojna Polaris, currently under construction at Zamakona Yards, and Sølvtrans has options for two additional vessels with deliveries in second half
of 2014 and first half of 2015.

The investment, amounting to some NOK 250 million (€ 22 million) per vessel, will be funded through a combination of internal means and bank loans.

Roger Halsebakk CEO of Sølvtrans says "We experience an increasing imbalance in the well-boat market. A combination of new licenses, continued consolidation and stricter regulations in the farming industry has increased demand for modern tonnage. The new build is a direct response to this development, and the options are core to the company's strategy to renew and expand the fleet, preparing the company for further growth. The choice of Zamakona Yards as supplier is based on Sølvtrans' good experiences from the ongoing construction of Ronja Polaris".
