From now on, a Serbian seafaring ship will be transporting live fish from the sea to the farm of the Vaagland company in Norway.

Although shipbuilding industry is not Serbia’s strong suit, a Zrenjanin-based company Bomex 4M has started changing the image.

The biggest ship the Serbian shipbuilders have ever made has just sailed away from Perlez, Vojvodina, to Norway. The 70 metres long, 12 metres wide, and 750 tons weigh, the ship has been produced for the Norwegian company Vaagland.

According to the shipyard Bomex 4M director, Branislav Radanovic, the ship is equipped so that it can transport different sorts of fish, from the sea to the farm or port. “Our company has provided the main logistics and engineers, while the subcontractors were engaged on the construction, decoration and painting the ship,” he added.

The construction lasted for three years and the ship was sold to the Norwegian company for 2 million euros. This is the 33rd vessel delivered by this shipyard since its opening in 2007.

The ceremony at the shipyard in Perlez on March 31 was attended by Aleksandar Vulin, Serbian minister of labor, employment veteran and social policy, who congratulated the company for a good job but also for a large number of workers engaged in the construction.

The ship is due to pass few more tests on the way and come to Norway in the coming days.
