A few examples of what we do:
Lower running costs and life time extension
The owner of the trawler Enniberg considered various alternatives regarding the vessel. Following a number of analyses together with MEST a decision was taken to replace the main engine and most of the machinery components with new modern equipment. The result of this comprehensive work has proven to be far lower running costs and extending the life time of the vessel Enniberg by 10 years.
MEST - a part of a succes!
Bakkafrost has developed into an international succes over the last years and is today a leading company within the salmon industry.
MEST Runavík has been a part of the team delvoping stainless steel solutions within most of Bakkafrost’s division - farming, processing og packaging.
Very positive feedback from the customer
More than 100 employees were involved in this project, which took place in the longest fjord in the Faroes, Skálafjørðurin – in August and September 2014.
Originally only the thrusters were to be worked upon. This work was estimated to last for app. three weeks, but since then the Faroe shipyard was handed over more tasks to do including comprehensive steel work. As agreed the work was finalised after seven weeks.
The feedback has been very positive from the customer. Thomas Gunnlaugsson, Statoil, wrote:
“I would like to thank you all for the extraordinary mobilization and support given to the WH project at the Faroe Islands.
A special thanks to the local Faroese companies and people. The will to assist, and ability to solve challenges has been beyond expectation for such a small community. The friendliness shown, always smiling and providing the outermost service at all times, has been well noticed in the Statoil team, and among the different companies involved in the shelter water stay.
I hope our paths will cross again sometime.”
Urgent challenge solved
An agreement was made between MEST and Maersk Tankers on repair of oil tanker Maersk Edgar. The vessel was repaired while anchored i Skálafjørðurin. According to Maersk Tankers MEST solved the task convincingly. Fleet Group Manager, Ajay Arora,Maersk Tankers, wrote to us: “I have received very positive and encouraging feedback on your handling of the Maersk Edgar”
