Tuco Marine has delivered a 15-metre high-pressure cleaning boat to the AKVA Group for fish farm operations in Norway.
The 15-metre vessel is built from composite materials, reducing the structural weight of the vessel and ensuring low maintenance and superior durability.
Thanks to the low weight and the twin inboard diesel engines connected to the Volvo Penta IPS propulsion system with forward-facing, counter-rotating propellers, the vessel is capable of operating at more than 33 knots.
The hull structure for this particular model features special appendages and reinforcements that Tuco believes make it ideal for fish farm operations.

|Owner:||AKVA Group, Norway|
|Builder:||Tuco Marine, Norway|
|Length overall:||15.0 metres|
