The vessel VOLT Harvest is equipped with Stun & Bleed lines to collect and stabilize the fish at the pen. Further the vessel is equipped with RSW tanks to cool and preserve the fish under transport to the final processing and packaging site. The vessel is designed with several features that are unmatched by others. This vessel has very large capacities compared to the size of the vessel.

Great flexibility in fish handling 

The operation has to be tailored to the processing sites facilities and practical solutions.

After the fish is Stun & Bled at the pen and transported to the processing site, the fish can be:

  • Discharged directly and continous to the processing site during production.
  • Discharged in a short time to a RSW tank on land. The processing site use this as a buffer and produce at their own speed after the vessel has delivered the fish.

Ideally the fish is discharged to a RSW receiving tank on land. The vessel utilization will then be higher since there will be no waiting time for the vessel.
