These boats constitute a historical fact for the company as they are the first completely new ships built by the Galician company. With more than 40 meters in length and capacity for 36 crew members, the two freezer trawlers have been blessed by the priest of Navia Don Manuel Álvarez as the anciente tradition suggests, and proudly launched by their respective godmothers: Arancha Sainz de Baranda and Clavel Blanco, both company employees. Due to the current situation, the event has been restricted to a limited number of attendees, maintaining security and social distance measures.   Both projects have required more than 13 months of work, a team of more than 30 people, and an investment that exceeds € 26 million.   Grupo Iberconsa, currently present on 5 continents, is the leading operator in Argentina and is positioned among the 3 most important operators in Namibia and South Africa, reaching a total of 123,000 tons of fish and seafood a year.   The construction of these new vessels is part of Grupo Iberconsa fleet expansion plan, which already has 50 vessels specialized in fishing and the production of various seafood products, of which 21 are freezer and fresh fish trawlers for hake and other fin fish, 16 are freezer trawlers for wild shrimp and 13 are squid jiggers. In addition, Grupo Iberconsa has factories in Argentina, Namibia, South Africa and has recently inaugurated one in Spain, focused in production of value-added products and equipped with the most modern technologies.   After their delivery scheduled for the end of March 2021, the new vessels will set sail for Argentina, where they will begin to operate in the wild shrimp fishing, and will help to increase the fishing and production capacity of Grupo Iberconsa, which continues to consolidate its growth and leadership in the sector at an international level.   During the same event, Astilleros Armon and Iberconsa congratulated themselves for their advanced negotiations in closing a new contract for the construction of another new vessel, with an expected delivery date throughout 2022, thus continuing with the objective of expanding the fleet capacity.  " ["post_title"]=> string(56) "Grupo Iberconsa celebrates the launch of two new vessels" ["post_excerpt"]=> string(0) "" ["post_status"]=> string(7) "publish" ["comment_status"]=> string(6) "closed" ["ping_status"]=> string(6) "closed" ["post_password"]=> string(0) "" ["post_name"]=> string(56) "grupo-iberconsa-celebrates-the-launch-of-two-new-vessels" ["to_ping"]=> string(0) "" ["pinged"]=> string(0) "" ["post_modified"]=> string(19) "2022-08-10 09:27:19" ["post_modified_gmt"]=> string(19) "2022-08-10 07:27:19" ["post_content_filtered"]=> string(0) "" ["post_parent"]=> int(0) ["guid"]=> string(33) "" ["menu_order"]=> int(10) ["post_type"]=> string(4) "post" ["post_mime_type"]=> string(0) "" ["comment_count"]=> string(1) "0" ["filter"]=> string(3) "raw" } [1]=> object(WP_Post)#6404 (24) { ["ID"]=> int(9100) ["post_author"]=> string(1) "5" ["post_date"]=> string(19) "2021-03-01 22:12:43" ["post_date_gmt"]=> string(19) "2021-03-01 21:12:43" ["post_content"]=> string(1933) "   With Directo al Plato, the new range of the NÓS brand, we want to expand Iberconsa's leadership in seafood with innovative products for a rich and healthy diet.   Without flavor enhancers, and with Mediterranean inpiration, we bet on recipes that contain all the necessary nutrients — fish, pasta or rice, vegetables… —for a rich and healthy dish. In 5-6 minutes in the microwave without prior defrosting, we combine the quality of a homemade recipe with the convenience of enjoying it anywhere.   Fusilli with Wild Prawn in Fine Herb Sauce, Biscayan Hake with Rice, Marinera Hake with Rice and Linguine with Wild Prawn with Fine Herbs, are the 4 recipes that will soon be available in the frozen food store.   The dishes are based on seafood, a category that we have led for 40 years. "We apply our expertise to the elaboration of each dish, guaranteeing the highest quality, by controlling the main product throughout the entire production chain", comments Gonzalo López, director of Iberconsa Seafood Processing, our new factory in Vigo where NOS Directo al Plato is made .   Futhermore, by having control over the entire process, there is the possibility of creating and customizing different products, according to market needs.   The new NÓS range is vacuum packed with TRAY SKIN technology, following the highest quality and food safety standards. In addition, it is committed to caring for the environment, using 80% recycled and 100% recyclable material.   In the future, the range will be expanded by creating new dishes with salmon or cod as a base, along with the creation of specific recipes for partners.  " ["post_title"]=> string(58) "We Launch Nós Directo al Plato, our new ready meals range" ["post_excerpt"]=> string(0) "" ["post_status"]=> string(7) "publish" ["comment_status"]=> string(6) "closed" ["ping_status"]=> string(6) "closed" ["post_password"]=> string(0) "" ["post_name"]=> string(56) "we-launch-nos-directo-al-plato-our-new-ready-meals-range" ["to_ping"]=> string(0) "" ["pinged"]=> string(0) "" ["post_modified"]=> string(19) "2022-08-08 13:14:47" ["post_modified_gmt"]=> string(19) "2022-08-08 11:14:47" ["post_content_filtered"]=> string(0) "" ["post_parent"]=> int(0) ["guid"]=> string(33) "" ["menu_order"]=> int(11) ["post_type"]=> string(4) "post" ["post_mime_type"]=> string(0) "" ["comment_count"]=> string(1) "0" ["filter"]=> string(3) "raw" } [2]=> object(WP_Post)#6409 (24) { ["ID"]=> int(9095) ["post_author"]=> string(1) "5" ["post_date"]=> string(19) "2021-03-01 21:42:53" ["post_date_gmt"]=> string(19) "2021-03-01 20:42:53" ["post_content"]=> string(2418) " The Government of Chubut (Argentina), together with the Operations General Manager of the Iberconsa Group and numerous personalities, inaugurated a comprehensive primary health care center in the port of Rawson.   The work was carried out thanks to the decision of Chubut´s governor, Mariano Arcioni, under the supervision of the Health Minister, Fabian Puratich and Iberconsa Group financing.   The need to have an assistance point for the workers of the important fishing port is the origin of the project. In the words of Jose Domínguez, Iberconsa's Operations General Manager:  “This came up in a conversation we had with the Secretary of Fisheries, Adrián Awstin, where talking about the endowments that the port had, it was mentioned that there was a lack of resources in the health system and the existence of this place that was semi abandoned. Considerting this, and taking into account that GRUPO IBERCONSA has an important fish processing plant in Rawson, we understood that it could be a useful collaboration, necessary for assistance in the port, and that is how we got to work ”.   Likewise, the Secretary of Fisheries Adrián Awstin stressed that "Iberconsa is a company that has demonstrated, together with the entire fishing sector, corporate responsibility and great solidarity towards the wholte population". Awstin also assured that “it is a very important and highly expected work in the Port, because it is linked to health, emergencies and first aid for workers on the dock. Now they will be able to work with the peace of mind that a nearby health center means ”.   The place is part of the Ministry of Fisheries building; it holds a complete medical dispensary, a health office, two bathrooms and a waiting room for patients.

Our commitment to sustainability and environment will be reinforced with a new solar roof that is already being installed at IBERCONSA SEAFOOD PROCESSING, our new factory in Bouzas (Vigo). EDF Solar is the firm responsible for the project. The installation, made of 1,211 modules, will have an annual, clean and non-polluting energy production of 773,090 kWh.   The works began in May and will end in July 2019. This new system will allow us to reduce the emission of almost 263 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere, and represents our contribution for the energy transition and the fight against climate change.   Self-consumption is the most effective energy saving and efficiency alternative for the refrigeration sector. Frozen Food companies have very high electricity costs due to the operation of the machinery that must keep the cold and that operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. With the new solar roof we will achieve a total saving of 11.65% in the electricity bill.
