Mowi Scotland is putting its GBP 125 million fish feed plant through the mill.
In Mowi’s latest newsletter The Scoop, the salmon farmer reports that its news feed plant – which will provide for company’s Scottish facilities, as well as for Ireland, Norway and the Faroe Islands – is going through a commissioning phase to build capacity and stability.
Site manager Kevin O’Leary said: “So far, everything is going to plan. We are very much still in the commissioning phase and we are learning every day, but I’m delighted that we have been able to produce and deliver feed to a range of Mowi farms.”
NEPTUNE 50, 200, 600, 1200, 2500 and 4000 are the different sizes of salmon feeds Mowi will produce as standard salmon feeds in Scotland at Kyleakin. They come in Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn versions. So far Kyleakin has delivered Neptune Summer 200, 600, 1200 and 2500. Neptune 50 Adapt is currently being made and will be followed by Neptune 4000 in July.
Farms across the mainland and the Western Isles are receiving feed produced at Kyleakin including Loch Alsh, Ardintoul, Loch Duich, Maol Ban, Harport, Port Na Cro, Bagh Dail nan Ceann, South West Shuna, Colonsay, Rum, MacLean’s Nose, Invasion Bay and Tabhaigh.
Kyleakin is expected to produce an estimated capacity of 170 000 tonnes per year.
