For the trawler Nordkap staying at Fiskerstrand Verft for maintenance and repair, we have finalized 270 squaremeter with epoxy in the cargo hold for fish.
The ship needed a seamless floor to avoid process water from the fish soaking into the concrete.
The original floor was grinded down to “white concrete” prior to applying an epoxy primer followed by a thicker sand-filled epoxy layer. Finishing with an epoxy top coat results in a robust and hygenic floor ideal to hold the fish cargo for many years to come.
Expansion grouts are cut similar to the underfloor and filled with a flexible polyurethane sealer, and all future cut-outs for manholes are marked with stainless steel bolts.
