Major tank farm delivery for Marine Harvest

The client:

Marine Harvest ASA is one of the largest seafood companies in the world, and the world’s largest producer of Atlantic salmon. The company employs 13 233 people, and is represented in 25 countries. In 2017 the company had a turnover of EUR 3.6 billion. Marine Harvest is listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange (OSE) and its share also trade on the US OTC market.

Marine Harvest supplies healthy, delicious and sustainably farmed salmon and processed seafood to more than 70 markets worldwide. The company is present and trusted in all major salmon farming regions in the world. In 2017 harvest volumes of salmon was 370 000 tonnes (GWT).

The project:

A state-of-the art greenfield fish feed plant with annual production of 170,000 tonnes of fish feed requires a lot of liquid storage capasity. Together with the client, Nakkila Works Oy was responsible for the dimensioning the liquid storage area for optimal technical and commercial value. Nakkila Works Oy´s scope was a turn-key liquid storage tank farm including planning, design, materials, prefabrication, freights, and site erection with total of ten liquid storage tanks including insulations, heating elements and walkways. Total liquid storage capasity of the delivery is over 6.000m3 of fish oil.

The execution:

Located in the Isle of Skye, Scotland, the harsh site conditions were acknowledged early on during the project, therefore the unusual high degree of workshop premanufacturing of the tank parts was playing a crucial role in order to keep the site welding in minimum. At site, the co-operation with Marine Harvest and the site crew abled us to perform a yet another successful liquid storage tank project.

The feedback:

”Nakkila executed the project in an excellent manner, both in time and ensuring the strict site rules for HSE were followed here in the UK. The work force paid attention to installation detail and we have ended up with an oil storage and oil handling facility of World class quality, would recommend them for any similar type project from start to finish” -Mick Watts, Group Engineer, Marine Harvest ASA
