Sølvtrans is the world's largest wellboat company for transport of live salmon and trout. The company is in the forefront when it comes to “closed system” technology, an environmentally friendly concept which limits the danger of infection, has a positive effect on animal welfare and gives a cost effective transportation and handling of the fish.
The fleet consists of 16 modern wellboats, mainly employed on long-term contracts with leading fish-farming companies in Norway, Scotland, Canada and Australia.
Sølvtrans has also invested in a 48 percent ownership in Solvtrans Chile SA, that operates 5 modern wellboats locally in Chile. The company is well looked after by the gerente general Viktor Vargas.
Solvtrans was established in 1986 and has its head office in Ålesund, Norway. In Chile, Sølvtrans Chile SA has its office in Puerto Montt.
