Tech update Antarctic Endurance

Antarctic Endurance is the name of Aker BioMarine’s latest flagship vessel for krill harvesting, which began its first venture in January earlier this year. The 130-metre long ship is truly a technological marvel, with innovative harvesting technology on-board that ensures Aker BioMarine can quickly and efficiently harvest all the krill they need from the depths of the arctic. The boat cost 1.1 billion NOK (US $118 million) to construct and the cargo can hold an impressive 3,150-tonnes of processed krill, which is then transferred to their supply vessel, La Manche, before being shipped to Uruguay and then to the end customer.
