FarmBase Concrete Feed Barges
Our state-of-the-art concrete feed barges feature integrated feed silos and are equipped with all necessary operational facilities, as well as living quarters for the staff. The design of facilities on deck and below deck reflect years of close cooperation between Marine Construction and our clients – that is one reason why Marine Construction today is the undisputed leader in this field in Norway.
We have delivered more than 50 FarmBase barges in recent years, and more are being built to fill client orders.
Our FarmBase barges can be delivered in a variety of sizes and configurations. Most in demand at the moment is the barge with 500-tonne capacity, which provides large storage capacity, has considerable feed capacity, and the space necessary for various service functions. These barges give the operator the required deck and storage space, ensuring onsite production support, to meet today’s demands and future demands.
Below deck, the barge has water and diesel tanks, as well as a power station, feed distribution equipment, silage processing and storage tanks, and all necessary pumps – all conveniently located for easy access. No other barge concept on the market provides this degree of service functions and amount of available space.
All FarmBase barges are constructed with double hulls for maximum safety in case of collision. Furthermore, the barges are almost maintenance-free due to their concrete hull and internal concrete wall construction.
Each FarmBase barge is custom made, with every detail inside and outside designed exactly according to customer specifications.
