The Alaskan Venturer
The processing barge Alaskan Venturer is a one-of-a kind 260 X 60 foot (80 X 18 meter) ocean-going barge. A large roofed structure beginning at the bow covers nearly two thirds of the barge’s deck. The generator, boiler, and icehouse are located on the stern.
The fish protein and fish oil production line is housed within the main processing structure. All of the processing equipment is state-of-the-art, made of stainless steel, aluminum, or high density plastics, which meet all federal and state food grade safety standards.
The hydrolysate plant is capable of converting approximately 200 to 300 metric tons per day of Alaska salmon industry by-products into hydrolyzed fish protein concentrate, hydrolyzed salmon meal, and salmon oil.
All of the hydrolysate prodcution equipment is controlled by the latest in integrated systems technology, Process Logic Control (PLC).
