Lerøy Midnor AS, Hitra - Norway: Delivery of new FarmBase 500
In April 2009, Lerøy Midnor (part of Lerøy Seafood Group), took delivery of the most modern FarmBase 500 barge that Marine Construction has designed to date.
This feed barge is equipped with all the facilities necessary to ensure optimal production efficiency, as well as the comfort for the crew. An Akvasmart feeding system is installed. The barge comprises of a cluster of eight silos and has a feed carrying capacity of 400 tonnes, plus a tank capacity of 100 tonnes for other purposes.
All necessary service functions are housed indoor on the main deck or below deck. These include including water and diesel tanks, generators, electrical installations and pumps.
On deck, the fish health management team has its own facility. The control tower has a 360-degree view and a space for display screens for monitoring sub-surface activity in the net pens. Images from the underwater cameras are wirelessly transferred to the control tower.
Lerøy Midnor is using a number of FarmBase barges of various designs and capacities that have been tailor built earlier. The most recent delivery proves Lerøy Group’s satisfaction and that they continue to insist on the best barges on the market – namely FarmBase from Marine Construction.
