EN: MEST delivered catamaran workboat to Hiddenfjord

“The work has been going according to plan and we are very satisfied with the quality of the new catamaran workboat. The workboat “Heldarsgjógv” was delivered at the agreed cost and time – yes even 24 days before time”, says Mouritz Mohr CEO, MEST Shipyard.

This is the first of two catamaran workboats from MEST to salmon company Hiddenfjord. It was delivered last Wednesday 22 November to Marjun Wilhelm, Head of Seafarming, Hiddenfjord. The next workboat to Hiddenfjord will be delivered in March 2024.

All the work has been undertaken in the Faroe Islands – including the hull. “Because all the work is undertaken at MEST facilities – design, drawings, the hull, the electrical installations and everything else – we can ensure a good quality of the final product”, said Mouritz Mohr, CEO.

The new catamaran which is new build 116 at MEST, is 16 metres long and 8 metres wide. It is fitted with two Volvo Penta 500 HK engines, two MELCAL cranes (one FL 80T5 and one FL23T2 crane) a Volvo Penta 250 kWa generator and a 20 tonnes hydraulic winch. The workboat is equipped with a net washer from Akva Group – which enables the staff to clean the salmon nets.

The vessel is located in Vestmanna in the Faroe Islands and is already in operation.
