First 160 mtr pen for Bakkafrost launched
The first in a series of 160 mtr pens for leading Faroese salmon farmer Bakkafrost was handed over at the assembly site today. The pen – a 2x450mm Hvalpsund EXTREME pen – is the first from an order placed earlier this year by Bakkafrost. It includes some unique features such as bird poles fitted directly into the sinker tube sleeve and integrated mooring points. With this order Bakkafrost hopes to reduce maintenance cost by moving away from old technology galvanized steel brackets.
