Turkey launches world’s largest wellboat

EM1 21 News Int FroyThe innovative wellboat Gåsø Høvding has been launched at the Sefine Shipyard in Turkey. The wellboat is 83.2 meters long and 30.9 meters wide and unlike any other. Møre Maritime designed the boat and Cflow delivers everything relating to fishing. They have both worked closely with Frøy on the innovative wellboat project for about a year when it was commissioned. “Our customer needed a large boat. We worked on several different options, but eventually landed on this one. Design and flexibility are the way our customer wants it,” says project manager Einride Wingan from Frøy. It is a good feeling to finally get her to sea. On such projects, there will always be challenges, but they could be solved along the way. The wellboat has a total holding volume of 7,500 cubic meters and is equipped with systems for sorting and removal of all types of cleaning fish, reusable freshwater treatment, 12-line hydrolicers and an advanced and automated hygiene system. Frøy has an additional five more wellboats under construction, four of which should be completed this year.
