New Service Vessel

On the 24th of February, Bakkafrost bought a new service vessel, which will be named “Róland” after one of the brothers that founded Bakkafrost in 1968. The service vessel will be equipped to undertake different kinds of service operations in our salmon farms among others delousing using lukewarm seawater for treatment against sea lice – identical to Bakkafrost’s latest service vessel “Martin”. The investment is yet another initiative in Bakkafrost’s sustainable delousing strategy without the use of chemicals. 

The vessel will be delivered in June 2017.
