Fosen Yard AS has built a semi-closed fish farm construction with a diameter of 160m and a depth of 20m. The second half ring of this construction has left Emden on Friday.

The team of Ems pilots, ESB towage and Wagenborg towage assisted Fosen yards and BOA in a smooth operation.

According to the company, the 1,600-ton steel colossus is the largest salmon farm in Europe and took almost a year to build at the Fosen Yard shipyard in Emden. The first half of the structure already set sail at the end of March. The client for the structures is salmon producer Norway Royal Salmon.

Salmon farm takes just under a week to Norway
The transport poses a challenge for those involved: two tugboats maneuvered the half-ring, which measures 40 by 40 meters and is almost 25 meters high, through the lock, which required the removal of light poles and fences beforehand. The offshore salmon farm is expected to arrive in Norway in five to seven days.
Simulation first!
Such a difficult mission succeeds only with a very good preparation in the form of a simulation. Before the real job started, the concept was previously tested in the simulator with everyone involved. Due to the limited space in the lock, the size of the transported part and the behavior of the convoy, the transport must be simulated beforehand. Professionals do not want to experience any unpleasant surprises.

NAUTITEC GmbH & Co KG prepared and conducted the simulation of this challenging project:
