The first off shore fish farm is taken into production of salmon by SalMar during autumn 2017.
The farm is built under a development licence given by the Norwegian Ministry of Fisheries and Coastal affairs, with the objective to spur new technology concepts, that can ensure sufficient growth, whilst also ensuring environmental sustainability.
Graintec has participated in this novel project for the last 3 years. Graintec has designed, delivered and installed all fish feed handling and transport equipment on the fish farm. This includes all equipment from intake and storage, to correct dosing and transport of the fish feed into the cage. All conveying and storage of the fish feed is designed to be very gentle, to protect structural integrity of the pellets.
