FV Defender underwent a significant conversion to make her the first fish pumping vessel in the Global Seas fleet. 

The scope of the project included:

  • Structural work: stern extension, bulbous bow with refurbishing of the thruster, whale back bow cover for the refurbished anchor windlass, an anti-roll tank, aft decks and bulwarks. Cargo hold capacity expanded by approximately 55%.
  • Mechanical work: rebuilding the main engines and generators, installation of new propellers, nozzles and Deflector Rudder system.
