Andfjord Salmon AS is developing land-based facilities at three different sites on Andøya. This summer, the first pool was completed and handed over. This pool is now entering a test phase, while the development of the remaining pools and sites is proceeding at full capacity. In total, Andfjord Salmon has the potential to produce 90,000 tonnes of salmon HOG.
In contrast to other land-based initiatives, Andfjord Salmon AS uses flow-through technology, with technological adaptations developed by the company itself. The facility utilises its unique access to tempered water directly from the Gulf Stream, and is not dependent on pumping, heating/cooling, or other costly operations. It´s estimated that the energy usage is as low as 1 kWh per kilo of produced salmon.
“We are on schedule with our long-term plans to produce approximately 90,000 tonnes of salmon, with the smallest environmental footprint ever seen. Jostein Nilssen is the best person to have with us when we will now be realising our further development plans”, says Rasmussen.
Jostein Nilssen starts in his new post as Project Director on September 21, 2021.
