SAGO COMBI POOL
During the process to find the ultimate way to handle Sago Extreme on board, the first idea for Sago Combi Pool was created. That said, vessels can use Sago Extreme without this solution by lifting the units out of the water with crane either at the side of the vessel or through a moonpool.
The Sago Combi Pool is designed to take on challenges with bird mortality and working in icy waters as well as creating a safe and comfortable working environment for the crew.
Sago Combi Pool is a unique stern design (available as an extension module) with an internal pool and working area. The longline is both set and hauled through the same pool. This means that the longline is underwater when it leaves the vessel, making it less available for birds and protecting the fishing gear from ice.
NORWEGIAN AND URUGUAYAN COOPORATION
Pesquera Azul Norge AS finished the rebuild of their vessel "Ocean Azul" in 2020.
The vessel has was totally renovated including the installation of a 12-meter Sago Combi Pool extention.
The Sago Combi Pool is the first of its kind and are in addition to take on challenges with icy waters and bird mortality designed to create a safe environment for the crew and optimize the use of Sago Extreme.
The “Ocean Azul” is operating under Uruguayan flag.
In addition, the vessel features more innovations to increase the efficiency and the sustainability of the operation. The “Ocean Azul” has a top-quality research station on board where Uruguay invites both national and international scientist to join in.
