Yanmar powers award-winning Norwegian hybrid fishing vessel

The Ro Vision hybrid live fish carrier

Yanmar has delivered engines for a hybrid power solution for the live fish carrier, Ro Vision, the winner of Norway’s Boat of the Year Award.

Built by Norwegian shipyard Larsnes Mek. Verksted AS, the 84.2 m Ro Vision is powered by three of Yanmar’s 6EY22ALW diesel generators integrated with a 600 kW battery pack from Siemens which together provide power for onboard systems and the electric propulsion system.

The 6EY22ALW engine has an output of 1370 kW and a bore and stroke of 220 x 320 mm.

Three 6EY22ALW diesel generators from Yanmar power the Ro Vision’s hybrid solution.

With the Norwegian aquaculture and fishing industry setting its sights on the future, new boats are being built with increasing concern for the condition of the live fish, the welfare of the crew and the environment. This first-ever hybrid propulsion live fish carrier is developed with a strong focus on increased safety and lower emissions. Equipped with a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system to reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions, the Yanmar engines deliver safe and reliable power that is cleaner than ever.

Jarle Gunnarstein, CEO of shipbuilder Larsnes Mek Verksted, gave credit to the powerplant.

“Yanmar engines are easy to install and accessible for maintenance,” Gunnarstein said. “Moreover, they are economical, have low emissions and a long lifespan, which is often a decisive factor for our customers, such as ship owners and designers.”
