Norway-based LNG design and engineering firm Fuelgarden Energy has commissioned a temporary LNG installation on the Isle of Skye in Scotland.

Fuelgarden said that the LNG installation was supplying natural gas to Mowi´s newbuilt fish feed factory at Kyleakin.

Mowi, the world´s largest salmon producer and one of the largest seafood companies in the world, constructed a new fish feed factory at Kyleakin in Scotland.

The factory, with an estimated cost of £125 million ($151.7M), will produce fish feed to Mowi´s salmon fish farms in Scotland, Ireland, and the Faroe Islands.

The process to produce the fish feed requires thermal energy, and for this purpose, Fuelgarden Energy designed and project managed the construction of a 2,000-cbm LNG terminal. The LNG terminal is mechanically complete, with commissioning planned for the third quarter of 2019.

While waiting for the LNG terminal to be started up, Fuelgarden Energy has designed and commissioned a mobile LNG installation that is temporarily supplying natural gas to the factory.

Dag Lilletvedt, founder and CEO of Fuelgarden Energy, said: “As an LNG designer with specialization in off-grid energy solutions we are very pleased to have been assigned the task by Mowi to design and project manage both the permanent and the temporary LNG solution at their newbuilt fish feed factory at Kyleakin. The temporary LNG installation has been designed with mobile LNG tanks and by using existing cryogenic equipment in the market.
