Fjord Mar­itime gen­er­ates good news

Fish Farmer - - European News -

NOR­WE­GIAN aqua­cul­ture sup­plier Fjord Mar­itime has signed a con­tract with Grieg Seafood in Fin­n­mark to sup­ply four of its Fjord Hy­brid sys­tems.

Pow­ered by mar­itime ap­proved lithium batteries, the Fjord Hy­brid sys­tem can re­duce the run­ning time of diesel gen­er­a­tors on feed ves­sels and will be utilised on Grieg Seafood’s feed barges.

Ber­gen based Fjord Mar­itime is now fo­cused on Nor­way but plans to look to in­ter­na­tional mar­kets by the end of the year.

Mar­ket­ing man­ager Oyvind Bakke ex­plained the ben­e­fits: ‘Gen­er­a­tor run­ning times are re­duced to a min­i­mum, from 24 hours down to two hours per day, lead­ing to a sig­nif­i­cant reduction in fuel con­sump­tion and ser­vice costs, and a much health­ier work­ing en­vi­ron­ment.’
