Sølvtrans aims to be industry-leading when it comes to service quality. The company is subject to the Aquaculture Act (Norwegian legislation) and the Scottish Freedom food standard.
The competence of Sølvtrans’ employees is seen as a key factor in achieving superior quality of the company’s services. The company therefore works actively to secure a highly qualified crew, through training, as well as systematic and ongoing improvements of procedures and routines. Furthermore, the technology onboard the vessels is an important driver for service quality, and Sølvtrans has developed a future-oriented concept based on closed system technology, which gives controlled water and temperature conditions and contribute to optimized bio-security and quality of the fish. Sølvtrans operate today nine vessels with closed systems.
During transport the live fish is continuously monitored by way of cameras and measurement of water quality parameters. Six of the company’s vessels are equipped with skimmers to remove protein foam from the recirculating water, and eight of the vessels have equipment for sea lice treatment installed. Automatic well-cleaning system is installed on four vessels, to increase efficiency of cleaning, and simplify one of the most physically challenging operations on a modern well-boat.
Sølvtrans have a modern fleet with low technical downtime. Scheduled maintenance is carried out annually on the vessels, hereof mainly during the period January – April for most of the vessels.
