Tuco Marine wins prestigious award
Tuco Marine’s work in the aquaculture segment has paid of. The company’s 15-meter long ProZero- vessel build as a specialized high-pressure edition has been given the prestigious award "Best Inshore AquacultureBoat 2018" – by International Work Boat World Magazine.
”We are very happy to receive thus prestigious award. The award is a sign that our work towards living up to all the demands and needs in the highly specialized and demanding aquaculture indsustry has paid of, as it has been recognized by the workboat industry” says CEO of Tuco Marine, Jonas Pedersen.
Work Boat World Magazine describes the 15 meter long workboat as: ”A carefully thought out and special boat that aims to achieve very high efficiency. It carries an exceptionally optimized design that is very well executed by the builder”.
The 15-meter long Prozero HPC boat is made of composite materials that reduces the structural weight of the body and leads to lesser need for maintenance and longer durability. It is powered by two built-in diesel engines that are connected to the characteristic Volvo Penta IPS propulsion system with acroscopic rotating propellers, which can give an operating speed of more than 33 knots.
The boat was sold to AKVA Marine Services from Norway in cooperation with Tuco Marine's local partner in the aquaculture industry. The boat was delivered after successful tryouts at sea, performed by Kjetil Nygaard from ProZeroNorway along with co owner and project manager Jakob Frost from Tuco Marine.
