Whitehaven Fishermen’s Cooperative (2017)
Awarded funds to purchase a new forklift truck and a refrigerated van.
The refrigerated van is to transport fish landed in Whitehaven, to auctions in distant ports with a large buyer base, such as in Lowestoft and Brixham. In these ports the fish can attract optimal prices.
The new forklift is to transport fish and shellfish landed into Whitehaven safely around the harbour to storage and transport facilitiies in the port.
This project was financed by Ørsted as an Agreed Donation in return for co-operation of the fishermen during the construction of the Walney Extension offshore wind farm.
