Estonian BLRT Grupp company Marketex Marine completed building the world's biggest steel fish-feeding barge, LETA/Postimees Online reports.


"This barge is at the fish farming market already in the next generation of steel barges due to bigger fodder storage capacity and higher level of crew accommodation," said BLRT Group Board Member Mark Berman.


The barge, built for Norwegian company AKVA Group, is 40 metres long, 12 metres wide and accommodates 850 tonnes of fodder.


Over the past ten years, BLRT Group specialists have built over 250 fish farming barges for fish industries in many states. Around 100 of them have been ordered by AKVA Group.
