Chile-based salmon farmer Multi X has signed a long-term agreement to operate one of the world´s most advanced wellboats in southern Chile.

The 4,000 cubic meter vessel is being delivered by Norway-based wellboat company Intership.

The vessel has significant innovations in freshwater production and treatment, which will allow for important advancements in sustainable operations, the companies said.

The wellboat will be part of the Multi X fleet and is expected to begin operating in the second half of 2024.

“This partnership will undoubtedly strengthen our seawater activities,” Multi X CEO Cristian Swett said.
