Vermland at Orskov Yard – Conversion from a Cargo vessel to a Fish Feed Carrier

Despite the Covid19-situation, we converted the vessel Vermland from a Cargo vessel to a Fish Feed Carrier in April and May and re-deliver the vessel on time. The owner Niels A. Mortensen said the following after the vessel departed: “Thank you all for a well performed job and your good workers, who are very helpful and skilled.”  

During the 9 weeks yard stay, Vermland was converted to a DP2 Fish Feed Carrier. The existing bow thruster was exchanged to a larger unit, 2 new stern thrusters were installed, and a new control system was installed. A feed delivery system including unloader was installed, together with 3 new gensets in order to supply additional power to the new equipment.

Throughout the project more than 50 tonnes of steel was installed such as foundations, reinforcement, thruster tunnels, unloading room, and hatches. Besides the conversion several upgrades, painting and maintenance were carried out. At Orskov Yard we are ready to assist with your next conversion. Do not hesitate to contact us for any requests. We look forward to hear from you.
