Gael Force Group has successfully delivered the first of two new SeaMate Feed Barges to Organic Sea Harvest near the Isle of Skye, Scotland.
The delivery of the SeaMate 350T marks the completion of farm infrastructure at Culnacnoc, with the inclusion of SeaQurePens, SeaQureMoor mooring grid, and SeaFeed technology, all supplied by Gael Force.
“We are delighted with the quality and strength of all the equipment we have received from the team at Gael Force,” said Organic Sea Harvest’s farms manager, Euan McArthur. “It is very reassuring to know that our farm technicians can care for our fish with the full knowledge that the equipment on site is offering us all a secure environment to work in.”
Designed and engineered to EN1992-1-1 and built in accordance with all applicable standards, the SeaMate Barge has a 350T feed capacity and is fitted with a series of safety features to protect farm personnel and the integrity of the barge, such as bilge alert systems, automatic sensors, and remote monitoring systems.
The software for controlling the feeding of fish can be intelligently configured to guide future feed plans ensuring the salmon receive the correct amount of feed. From a land-based feeding centre which is planned imminently, farmers will have the option to control feeding and monitor barge safety from the shore via a secure link to the barge.
