Norwegian shipyard Aas Mech. Verksted has completed the delivery of the “Ronja Evolution” to wellboat supplier Sølvtrans.

This marks the 38th vessel that Aas Mech. has delivered to Sølvtrans over the past 25 years.

The “Ronja Evolution,” measuring 77 meters in length and with a cargo space of 3,000 m³, is designed for the transport of live fish, particularly smolt. Its design features a low draft relative to its loading capacity, making it suitable for operations in areas with access limitations.
