IN BRIEF - Mericq sets foot in Spain by acquiring Wildomar

Tuesday, May 16, 2023

The Mericq group continues its internationalization with the acquisition of the Spanish Mariscos Wildomar, a specialist in premium shellfish, particularly clams.

Agenais Group announced the acquisition of the Spanish company Mariscos Wildomar. Based in Irun, in the Spanish Basque Country, this company specializes in live shellfish and their purification. These are mainly Manila clams ( Ruditapes philippinarum ) and mussels, but also cockles, oysters, clams, winkles, vernix or tellines.

Customers are mainly Spanish and French wholesalers. The Wildomar company was founded in 2008 by two passionate French people: Henri Izquierdo on production and William Goulay on the business side. The first to retire, his partner chose to leave at the same time. "We started the adventure together, it made sense to finish it together! “, explains William Goulay. “ Mericq takes over, with the same passion for the product, suppliers and customers ,” says Bruno Sachet, director of the Mericq group.

Funny point, it's another duo who will take over: Stéphane Planes, the Mericq shellfish buyer for more than 20 years will settle in Irun with his assistant, Gildas Parmentier.

IN BRIEF - Danish shutdown

Monday, May 15, 2023

The expected action by truckers, fishermen and others is taking place today, in response to the Danish government’s stance on road transport taxes that are seen as discriminatory as some sectors are harder hit than others.

Some haulage operators had already begun their disruptive action on Sunday night, aiming to paralyse Denmark’s road network. Police are reporting significant disruption to traffic.

The action is being supported by close to a hundred fishing vessels with actions at the ports of Hirtshals, Helsingør and Frederikshavn.

The Hanstholm auction had already warned vessel operators to avoid landing catches during the days around the action, concerned that this could lead to fish not reaching buyers or catches being sold at knock-down prices.

IN BRIEF | Finland - Wärtsilä LNG reliquefaction retrofit contract reduces costs and emissions

Wärtsilä LNG reliquefaction retrofit contract reduces costs and emissions

Technology group Wärtsilä will supply the reliquefaction system for a retrofit project on an LNG carrier vessel converted to operate as a floating storage unit (FSU). The vessel, the ‘Energos Grand’ is owned by Connecticut, USA based operator Energos Infrastructure, and is being chartered by New Fortress Energy. The order was booked by Wärtsilä in March 2023.

The Wärtsilä system allows the boil-off-gas (BOG) from the LNG onboard to be reliquefied and returned to the cargo tanks rather than being wasted. The solution contributes to a significant reduction in emissions and creates cost savings, as well as optimizing the LNG cargo level.

The Wärtsilä equipment is scheduled for delivery during the second half of 2024.
