Norwegian shipyard orders wellboat pumps from PG Flow Solutions

PG Flow Solutions is to supply seawater circulation pumps for a wellboat that the Norwegian shipyard Aas Mekaniske Verksted is building for Brønnbåt Nord Lofoten.

Eight large seawater circulation pumps will be supplied for the 63.86 metre long and 14 metre wide newbuild wellboat. The pumps will ensure continuous seawater circulation in the boat’s well, which has a total storage capacity of 1200 cubic metres across two wells.

During the past year, the shipyard awarded similar contracts to PG Flow Solutions for three other newbuilds.

“2019 was a very good wellboat year for us, largely because Aas Mek has been very successful in this segment. Receiving another order from the yard gives us a great start to the new year,” said Øyvind Berg, vice president of sales and marketing manager at PG Flow Solutions.

“Our seawater pumps are designed to ensure the best possible fish welfare, which in turn translates into financial gain for both the wellboat operator and the fish farmers,” added Berg.

The pump systems will be delivered to Aas Mekaniske Verksted’s yard in Vestnes, Norway.

Ship delivery is planned for November 2021.
