Our very first workboat has been officially handed over to Organic Sea Harvest from her builders and will shortly set sail for Skye.
The 19 metres long RoRo workboat has a cargo capacity of 40 tonnes and will service our organic sea sites at Invertote and Culnacnoc.
She has been named Bàta nam Brathairean (after Rubha nam Brathairean, a headland on Skye near to the OSH sites) and is the first LUV1908 aquaculture support vessel to be delivered by Damen Shipyards.
“Both Damen and Coastal Workboats Scotland have been very supportive during the construction of our vessel and are completely aligned with our mission to encourage sustainable aquaculture in the region. During the construction, builders allowed us to fit the vessel with a range of equipment, helping us get her ready for our distinct scope of work. This proved very helpful, as it resulted in the vessel being ready for operation immediately upon delivery.” – Ove Thu, CEO (Organic Sea Harvest)
