Salmon Evolution’s land-based plant planned to produce 7,900 tonnes HOG at Indre Harøy in Norway, Phase 1 facility is in operation. Phase 1 includes 12 tanks, each containing 5,000 m3 fresh sea water replaced approximately every 4th hour. The future expansion, Phase 2 and 3, includes in total 48 fish tanks where fresh seawater pumped from the sea will count 16,000 liters per second and where the total amount of water circulating will be above 50,000 liters per second at peak biomass, making it a massive project. During the project Phase 1, execution and commissioning, DESMI had the honor of working closely with EPC contractor Artec Aqua and the end-user Salmon Evolution.
