NB1070 “M/S Nkysund” Launching Ceremony
M/S Nyksund, the LNG-powered fish feed supply vessel that Tersan Shipyard is building for its valuable clients NSK Shipping has been launched in a ceremony where the owners management, shipyard management and local authorities have participated. MS Nyksund’s predecessor MS Høydal, the first gas-powered vessel of its type, was delivered in 2012 again by Tersan and was fitted with innovative new systems for delivering fish feed in bulk. The ship made a vital contribution both to Owner’s and charterer BioMar’s commitment to environmentally friendly and sustainable solutions. Designed by NSK Ship Design, MS Nyksund will also be a high-tech vessel featuring cutting-edge equipment in all areas including cost-effective and environmentally friendly LNG-powered propulsion engines, fish-feed handling equipment that is efficient and gentle on the feed, as well as the DP system for optimum manoeuvrability.
In their speeches both parties have highlighted the importance of human factor in this business as well as the success of the cooperation between the two companies created throughout these new building project.
