Gael Force forges ahead with new steel-enhanced pen


Inverness-based aquaculture industry supplier Gael Force has unveiled two new products ahead of the Aquaculture UK trade show in Aviemore next week.

The SeaQurePen Ultra pen system is an iteration of the company’s SeaQurePen that comes with steel brackets for extra strength at the exposed sites that some of Scotland’s biggest salmon farmers are pioneering.

Gael Force has also introduced an enhanced version of its SeaFeed Spreader, which features an improved float design for greater stability in the water, and an improved bearing for longer life expectancy.

Challenging sites

“We’re delighted to be able to showcase our new pen at Aquaculture UK this month,” said group sales director Jamie Young in a press release.

“We have been supplying pens to the aquaculture sector for over 25 years and to showcase this new 560mm steel bracket pen at the UK’s largest aquaculture show allows us to demonstrate our commitment to our customers to deliver solutions for some of the most challenging sites.”

The new pen is purpose-built for exposed and environmentally dynamic sites and is available in sizes 120m to 200m in circumference with the option of floatation pipes in 450, 500, and 560mm. The design utilises heavy-duty galvanised brackets for strength and resilience, along with engineered tie rods to provide improved load distribution.

Gael Force Group, which employs around 170 people, is exhibiting at stands C10 (inside) and OS46 (outside) at Aquaculture UK in Aviemore on May 14 and 15 May.
