Oslo-listed Faroese grower, Bakkafrost, has ordered a 75-meter feed barge from JT Electric, its second from the company, reports Salmonbusiness.com.

The feed barge will be delivered with a modern feed facility made by JT and equipped with a pelleting control system that offers good feed utilization.

Salmonbusiness.com points out that JT will supervise the work of a shipyard in Poland that will deliver the assembly. The technology onboard was developed in the Faroe Islands and will be delivered to Poland, where it will be installed.

The vessel — a converted bulker — has the capacity to hold up to 800 tonnes of feed. The other JT vessel of the same type delivered to Bakkafrost in November 2017 was destined to work in the Faroe Islands, adds Salmonbusiness.com.
