Quality-assured raw materials for the production of fishmeal & fish oil
Fishing as a streamlined business
With its location close to the fishing grounds, the Port of Thyboron has been the home port for sand eel (tobis) and pelagic fishing since this type of fishing began in the 1950s. Industrial fishing has developed steadily and been modernised over the years, and now uses safe vessels with good working conditions for the crew, and equipment that ensures the best quality raw materials for feed production. The Port of Thyboron has developed in step with the sector, and has recently commissioned new world-class unloading facilities for industrial fishing crews.
A reliable business
Industrial fishing vessels operate an efficient business. Fishing vessels for blue whiting, sand eel, sprat and Norway pout are designed as highly professional workplaces, where efficiency, reliability and ultra-short waiting times are essential. You have to fish while the fish are there. It takes skill to find and catch the elusive fish species and operate a large fishing vessel.
Easy access to fishmeal factory
At Thyboron, it is very easy to sail in to the fishmeal and fish oil factory and discharge the catch. TripleNine A/S is located directly opposite the entrance to the Port of Thyboron, and the newly built quay makes it easy to sail to the new discharging facilities with a minimum of manoeuvring.
New discharging quay facilities
First-class working conditions at the discharging plant for the TripleNine A/S fishmeal and fish oil factory ensure that vessels can quickly return to sea, after a professional pit stop encompassing numerous services during discharging.
Fishmeal factory with good receiving facilities
To keep waiting times during discharging to an absolute minimum, the new receiving facilities at TripleNine A/S are designed to handle 400 tonnes of fish per hour with a self-selfdischarging system.Fishmeal factory
Ample space for pelagic vessels
In addition to the 160-metre discharging quay (Sperlingkaj), a new 130-metre long quay (Oliekaj) has been built, which can also serve as a layover quay for industrial fishing vessels when there are no imminent oil deliveries on the way. This means there is now ample space in the harbour for large pelagic fishing vessels in Thyboron.
Easy access for maritime services
At the Port of Thyboron, vessels can easily and efficiently refill supplies while the vessel is in port. There is easy access to water for the fishing vessels’ cooling tanks, as well as bunkering and electricity. The new quays even allow for vessel maintenance or repair by the local maritime service companies during discharging. The entire quay is designed for easy access for maritime services, such as the maintenance and repair of trawls, buckets and vessels, and there is easy access for cranes.Maritime Services
