BioMar and Bio Feeder Announce Environmentally Friendly Boat
BioMar Norway and Bio Feeder extend their collaboration with a new cutting-edge hybrid vessel. The Kryssholm – a high-tech vessel for shipping fish feed will be completed in 2021.
BioMar and Bio Feeder AS are extending their collaboration and have now embarked on an exciting project to develop a new and innovative hybrid vessel. This will be the first vessel in Norway to use battery power in fish feed deliveries. The ship will be chartered to BioMar during the high season, with the first feed deliveries taking place in the summer of 2021.

“With this vessel’s cutting-edge hybrid technology, we are continuing to develop our role as an innovator in the aquaculture industry,” says Tore Gunnar Wikdal, BioMar’s Supply Chain Director.
The Kryssholm will be one of the market’s largest feed vessels, boasting a cargo capacity of more than 3000 tonnes. The ship is owned and operated by Bio Feeder.
“We are very much looking forward to upgrading the Kryssholm. This is a very exciting project and we are delighted to be continuing our collaboration with BioMar in this venture,” says Nils Tore Øpstad Melingen of Bio Feeder.
With a length overall of no less than 89.9 m and a beam of 13.6 m, the Kryssholm will be the largest fish feed carrier on the market. The Kryssholm features a combination of diesel engines and hybrid batteries, a combination that offers both noiseless DP delivery and low energy consumption on delivery.

“During DP discharging, the ship will use batteries and auxiliary engines. Using the hybrid solution during discharging enables both emissions and consumption to be reduced,” says Nils Tore Øpstad Melingen.
Financial support for the conversion of the vessel has been received from the Business Sector’s NOx Fund.
The grant is conditional upon the Kryssholm being fitted with a system for treating the exhaust gases produced by its engines. The aim of the NOx Fund is to reduce emissions by business and industry to enable Norway’s commitments under the Gothenburg Protocol to be met. The NOx Fund was established in 2008.
