Adapted to shallow conditions
“Ronja Explorer”was built based on a completely new design and is especially adapted to operations in Scotland and for the transport of smolt and post-smolt to areas that can be difficult to access.
The vessel has 2,500 cubic meters of cargo capacity which will give it a capacity of 375 tonnes of live fish.
