How great it is to be part of a winning team! That’s what we felt when the new flagship Ro Vision was proclaimed Ship of the Year 2020 in Norway by the marine trade magazine Skipsrevyen. Ro Vision is the world's first hybrid well-boat in the salmon fishing industry and heralds a new era for green development in the well-boat industry.

The power on the Ro Vision comes from three YANMAR 6EY22ALW diesel generators, powering the supporting systems onboard to keep the life fish in good condition and the electrical propulsion system to ensure safe navigation.

Reliable, safe, economical power

For Jarle Gunnarstein, CEO of Larsnes Mek Verksted, where the ship was built, YANMAR is the undisputed choice when it comes to marine engines, both for propulsion engines and auxiliary engines. “YANMAR engines are easy to install and accessible for maintenance. Moreover, they are economical, have low emissions and a long lifespan, which is often a decisive factor for our customers, such as ship owners and designers.”
