Kyleakin Fish Feed Factory

MOWI have created a new fish feed factory at Kyleakin, Skye to produce feed for their Salmon farms throughout Scotland, Ireland, Norway and the Faroe Islands.

Location: Skye
Client: MOWI
Cost: £25m
Completion: 2019

Blyth & Blyth worked with Robertson Construction to create the factory which encompassed a Main Process building and various other production buildings forming the £125M facility. Blyth & Blyth also worked closely with other engineering firms to provide SER certification for various Silo buildings. The main structures were constructed using steel braced frames with precast concrete floors and horizontally composite cladding systems for external and internal walls. Foundations were created with various piled solutions due to the nature of the ground and the large forces exerted by the 40m high Main Process building.
