Biggest feed barge delivery everPublished: 24.05.2017

At the shipyard in Gdynia Poland, 7 feed barges were recently loaded onboard the vessel Jumbo Vision. The barges are destined for Canada and will be operational this summer.

 

Employees on three continents have contributed to the delivery 
This has been a great project to work on, says Ronny Askeland, Head of Projects in Steinsvik. “Great coworkers and partners on three continents have contributed to the project being delivered on time. Factory workers in Vietnam, software developers, project workers and technicians in Norway in addition to a growing service team in Canada, have all been important in securing the contracts and finalizing the delivery”.

 

 
About the barges

The barges are in the SeaFarm Feeder design, have a feed storage capacity of 300 metric tons, and are customized for customer needs and site conditions. The design make them efficient feeding machines and they have proved to be well suited for Steinsvik’s overseas customers. All barges from Steinsvik are equipped with the Next Generation FeedStation software and can be fitted with 2 to 8 feeding lines. The barges on their way to Canada have 4 feeding lines and can feed up to 48 cages each.

 
Special transport
This is the third time in two years that Steinsvik ship feed barges as deck cargo to Canada. In total 13 barges have been shipped to Canada this way.

 

“This is a challenging and costly operation made possible by Steinsvik global presence and years of experience in fish farming deliveries on all continents. Jumbo performed the loading with the highest precision” says Ronny Askeland.
