On Tuesday, Marine Harvest held an open day at its new feed plant site in Kyleakin quarry, on the Isle of Skye, Scotland.
According to the West Highland Free Press, Ewan McColl, Operations Director Processing and Feed Scotland, said: “We’re delighted to welcome the local community so they can see where we are in terms of construction. We’re also particularly keen to hear from anybody interested in working at the plant. This is a chance to hear more about what’s involved.”
The new plant, which is due to be finished by next summer, will supply fish feed to all Marine Harvest’s salmon farms in Scotland, as well as Ireland, the Faroe Islands and parts of Norway.
The liquid tank storage and raw material silo foundations are complete. All other foundation work on warehouses is ongoing. Marine works are imminent. 100+ persons are currently on site, Marine Harvest said in a press release.
When finished, this will be Marine Harvest’s second fish feed plant. The first one is located at Bjugn, Central Norway.
