‍‍26 February 2021:

The most central building-blocks of its flow-through system is now connected to the surrounding ocean at Andøya. The water inlet pipeline, which is the main artery to the first pool, was connected to the pool in mid-January. Read more here.

“We are very pleased that the two most weather-dependent and time-critical installations have been completed. These installations bring us a major step closer towards function testing of the first pool, which will help further de-risk our build-out at Kvalnes and our technology solution in general,” says Martin Rasmussen, CEO of Andfjord Salmon™. 

‍‍Some electrical and automation installations as well as installation of less time-critical pipeline connections remain before the first pool is ready for water testing. 

The company’s flow-through technology, utilising fresh seawater from the surrounding Andfjorden, is a key enabler towards reaching Andfjord Salmon’s objective of building the world's most fish-friendly and sustainable fish farm on land. 

‍‍Andfjord Salmon™ has developed a flow-through system that will provide unique conditions for salmon farming on land. Without the use of energy, the pools fill themselves with seawater from a water depth of 160 meters. Organic biomass will be captured and recycled into growth products for agriculture.

Andfjord Salmon is a Norwegian company established in 2014. The company is listed at Oslo Stock Exchange (ANDF), and located at Kvalnes on the northernmost island of Andøya in Vesteraalen, Norway.
