Easter weekend production at Vopnafjördur
Blue whiting production started last weekend at HB Grandi’s fishmeal factory in Vopnafjördur as the company fleet landed approximately 5000 tonnes. 4000 tonnes had already been landed to the company’s Akranes factory.
According to Vopnafjördur factory manager Sveinbjörn Sigmundsson, Faxi RE, Lundey NS and Ingunn AK all landed at the weekend.
‘Production has been going very well. We are working around the clock with two twelve-hour shifts. We didn’t manage to complete the factory extension before all this these landings so that will now have to wait until this production cycle is finished. We have nevertheless started using some of the new equipment with excellent results,’ Sveinbjörn Sigmundsson said.
