September 28, 2021

Faroese Company, Fremherji chooses Havfront` s gutting and heading machine, LOPPA100.

Havfront delivers its first machine to the Faroe Islands and Framherji.

Framherji is building a new trawler, type Vard 803 design that will replace the existing trawler P/F “Akraberg”.
P/F “Akraberg” are 84 meters long and 16,7 m wide. With a crew of 24 men and 25 single cabins. By June 2022 the trawler will be completed by Vard Brattvåg.

The factory has a capacity of 105 tons HG fish per day, they will also have silage on board.

Loppa100 heading and gutting machine will be used as a big fish machine, so there will be no manual heading and gutting.

Framherji owns six boats, one trawler, two pelagic and three-line boats.

“We have chosen to go for Loppa100 because of the good feedback from others in the industry and because it can be used on big fish”
– Technical inspector, Svenning Hansen

Havfront thanks Steel-X AS for the cooperation and is looking forward to having the machine in use onboard P/F “Akraberg”. This is the third LOPPA100 Steel-x delivered.
