The contract includes developing an efficient and lean factory logistic, Bjørdal automation system, Bjørdal factory equipment and installation services. Delivery will take place mid 2022.

Arctic Pearl is the former vessel Ocean Duke which will now be rebuild to harvest the Iceland Scallop. The new harvesting methode is developed by Tau Tech and both harvesting and the Bjørdal process plant are based upon the most sustainable methodes, aiming to use all raw materials.

PE Bjørdal have during the years been known for developing highly efficient and lean factories both for white fish and snow-/king crab in addition to having a thorough knowledge of processing high quality seafood. The Iceland scallop contract is a result of this compethence in addition to the ability to develop new solutions in close cooperation with our customers. We are for sure looking forward to being part of this important project.
