The Expansions plans are progressing


We are about halfway through the expansion plans, which were presented in the summer of 2013. Several big projects are on-going and some projects are in progress.

The purpose of the expansions presented in the summer of 2013 was:

  • to produce bigger smolt (Reach 300g in 2018)

  • to minimize the biological risks

  • to gradually enhance the total production capacity with 10-15%

  • to have a higher efficiency and a safer investment by integrating production units on land

  • to have the total savings accumulated through a higher efficiency should save about DKK 70-90 mio. yearly from 2017


  1. Minimize the biological risks
  2. Increase the efficiency
  3. Increase the total production capacity

The Expansion at Bakka

Bakkafrost’s expansion plans on building a new production plant and headquarter are progressing. The ship M/S Nordvåg has recently made two trips from Strand in Norway to Glyvrar with equipment to the new production plant. Many installations are on-going, e.g. sewage, freezers, ice production, plumbing and several companies start their installations in the coming weeks.

The installations are a couple of weeks behind schedule, so therefore the startup of the new facilities will be delayed accordingly. We hope that we can start trial productions in May this year.
