CEO of FSV Group, Arild Aasmyr, on why they selected Brunvoll: “We chose Brunvoll for this vessel because they have proven their ability to deliver top-of-the-range products along with a large global service network. This is a new market for us, and we will also be operating the vessel globally. An added bonus for us is that Brunvoll develops and produces these world-class products in our neighborhood.”
The 50-meter-long stun and bleed vessel will be fitted with a twin-screw configuration, featuring controllable pitch shaft lines propellers and reduction gears with electrical motors for propulsion. The vessel will also be equipped with two tunnel thrusters, one forward and one aft, for maneuvering. FSV Group chose the twin-screw configuration in combination with the two tunnel thrusters to meet the operational requirements of the vessel. The vessel is designed to operate in shallow waters with strong currents and is based on the Aurora series developed by Sirius Design & Integration (Sirius DI) and Fitjar Mekaniske Verksted (FMV). The vessel will also be constructed by FMV in Fitjar, Norway.
