More than 20 new jobs are being created by Inverness-based marine equipment and engineering services supplier Gael Force Group.

The workers will construct fish farm feeding barges for the Scottish Salmon Company (SCC).

The contract worth almost £2.5m involves the making of three 200-tonne SeaMate 200T barges.

SCC has indicated that it may order three more barges if it goes ahead with a planned expansion of its business.
