Bakkafrost’s new 241 feet long farming service vessel “Bakkanes” has now commenced operations, and is destined for Scottish waters.
On Saturday, Bakkafrost’s newest farming service vessel, “Bakkanes”, arrived at the company’s headquarters at Glyvrar on Eysturoy, in the Faroe Islands.
About 400-500 people attended the reception, where Regin Jacobsen, CEO of Bakkafrost, welcomed the guests, and Magnus Rasmussen, Minister of Environment, Industry and Trade and Ian Laister, CEO of The Scottish Salmon Company spoke at the reception.
All guests were invited aboard to see the new vessel. “Bakkanes” has previously been operating in the Norwegian offshore industry as a supply vessel. At 241 feet long and 54 feet wide, “Bakkanes” is a sister ship to Bakkafrost’s FSV “Martin”, purchased in 2016. “Bakkanes” is equipped with the FLS delousing system.
“Bakkanes” has now commenced operations, and it will primarily operate in Scottish waters.
