Salmon processing plant for the Faroe Islands
In the Faroe Islands, fishing is the biggest industry, incorporating most other industries within it. The process of catching, killing, and cleaning the fish all happens in the Faroe Islands.
For the HiddenFjord salmon farms in the Faroe Islands, DC-Supply developed a specialty solution based on 40ft High Cube containers. We have previously delivered a mobile slaughterhouse solution for Luna Lakseopdræt, also located in the Faroe Islands. However, the HiddenFjord solution differentiates itself from the previous solution by being designed as a mobile unit, capable of being brought out into the fjord.
By bringing the container solution out on the water instead of bringing the catch to a facility on land, the stress levels of the fish are minimized, and thus maximizing the freshness and quality of the catch.
The specialty solution is based on the 40ft High Cube containers, which are fully installed with electricity, washable walls and floors (veterinarian standards), drains, and a separate control room.
HiddenFjord salmon is raised in open waters, without the use of hormones or antibiotics. Furthermore, the firm has developed the world’s most humane and natural harvesting method. In 2003, HiddenFjord was the driving force behind the implementation of the most stringent and comprehensive regulations for aquaculture in the world (Faroese Veterinarian Act on Aquaculture). With our new solution, the stress-free salmon rearing environment is maximized, and this, once again, puts HiddenFjord at the forefront of Faroese quality salmon production.
