With the professional support of our Norwegian office, and following the successful installation of two MELCAL JL300S fish feed unloaders in 2018, Norwegian shipowner EGIL ULVAN REDERI has awarded MELCAL with a contract for delivery of a third unit.

Construction of EGIL ULVAN’s versatile newbuild “Odrun With” has been assigned to Tersan Shipyard in Turkey. The 3,500dwt vessel is equipped to sail on LNG to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions. To obtain an even lower carbon footprint, the vessel features battery packs that enable operations in full electric mode. In conjunction with the vessel’s dynamic positioning system, MELCAL’s JL300 fish feed unloader is devised for efficient and non-contact direct discharge at the numerous fish farms along the Norwegian coast.

Benedetto Catanzaro, CEO MELCAL We take pride in furnishing these specially designed handling solutions for EGIL ULVAN’s fish feed carrier; these are complex projects, that demand close collaboration with our client and across all departments. With our JL300S fish feed unloaders already installed and operating smoothly onboard the “With Junior” and the “With Frohavet”, we would like thank our client for this renewed commitment. As always, our team is ready and eager to deliver on product quality, safety and operational performance.
