Seawater circulation system to Kerko Seatrans vessel

1 November 2018 – Norwegian shipyard Aas Mekaniske Verksted has contracted PG Flow Solutions to supply a seawater circulation pump system to a wellboat that the shipbuilder is currently constructing for Kerko Seatrans AS.

The system consists of eight large seawater circulation pumps that will be delivered to Aas Mekaniske Verksted’s yard in Vestnes, Norway.

The vessel is newbuild number 203 from Aas Mekaniske Verksted and has a storage capacity of 3000 cubic meters. It is scheduled for delivery during the summer of 2020.

“Our non-mechanical seawater circulation pumps are designed to ensure excellent animal welfare, in line with the overall design of this wellboat. We have been a subcontractor to Aas Mekaniske Verksted on many other vessels and are pleased that they have returned to utilise our pumps at this newbuild,” says Øyvind Berg, vice president sales & marketing at PG Flow Solutions.

PG Flow Solutions’ seawater circulation pumps are highly efficient and ensure excellent animal welfare. The vessel crew can easily maintain the pumps without the support from an external service technician. PG Flow Solutions’ contract value has not been disclosed.

Kerko Seatrans AS is a wellboat company based in Bergen, Norway. Its new vessel will be used for transporting live fish and as a service vessel for fish farms. The wellboat is of the AAS 3002 ST design and will be 76.96 metres long and 17.80 metres wide.

PG Flow Solutions provides proprietary solutions, systems and products for companies within the energy, maritime, aquaculture and land-based process industries. The heritage of the business is pumps and pumping systems. Its main manufacturing sites are located in Sande, Vestfold, Norway, and Worcester, UK.
