World’s Largest Fish Feed Plant Now Open

On Friday 20 September Erlend Sødal, Managing Director of Skretting Norway, officially opened the extended fish feed plant in Averøy in mid-Norway.

This Skretting production facility is today the largest and most modern fish feed plant in the world. 

 

Hilde Roald, the Production Manager, added: “Twenty nationalities were represented during the construction. This is the most comprehensive and successful project we have ever completed. We started to prepare the site two and a half years ago. "More than 9,000 hours went into administration and project management and around 400,000 man-hours were invested in work on-site. It has been a challenging job for employees at the facility and not least for our 40 suppliers. They were given with a rigorous work schedule and they've stuck to the plan.”
