New Landing Craft for Scottish Sea Farms

Scottish Sea Farms has this month (February) taken delivery of the Warness Lass from Macduff Shipyards in Aberdeen in an investment worth £500,000.

This new Landing Craft is 14.95 metres long and 5.6 metres wide and is capable of carrying 21 tonnes of deck cargo. It has two engines, each with 230hp, and is destined for Scottish Sea Farms’ remote Eday site in Orkney as a feed boat.

Richard Darbyshire, Orkney Regional Manager, Scottish Sea Farms, commented: “This latest vessel is part of the planned expansion of the Eday site to 12 cages and 1900T of production capacity that was granted planning permission in September 2014. We are continually investing in our staff and equipment at Scottish Sea Farms and this new vessel will assist us in meeting an ever increasing demand for our high quality salmon.”
