Nordnes took over an old fishfactory on Vigra outside Ålesund, some years ago. The factory-equipment is now gone, and instead the building has been totally renovated and houses today an up to date trawlfactory, storage facilities, 100 meters of quayside and a small-scale fishfactory, mainly for educational use. The facility is now named “Bryggen Center of Training”.
All examination of fisherman-apprentices in our region, are now taken at Bryggen. There are also a lot of courses taking place there.
Affiliated Bryggen is the vessel “Nordbas”, which is specially built for training of students in the use of trawl, Danish seining and general seamanship.
