In the world of aquaculture, the health and well-being of fish take precedence. However, ensuring optimal conditions for fish is just one piece of the puzzle. A successful aquaculture plant demands careful consideration of multiple parameters, including process redundancy, reliability, energy efficiency, and access to local service.

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 honour of working closely with EPC contractor Artec Aqua and the end-user Salmon Evolution.

Mr. Hallgeir Øyen, Technical Manager shared the story of selecting the right pump partner for the project. Although he was not familiar with DESMI pumps initially, he knew he needed pumps that would not rust or deteriorate quickly and would last for many years, ensuring a safe and healthy environment for the fish. After inspecting other aquaculture plants in Norway that had DESMI pumps installed, the team invited DESMI to participate in the tender. DESMI was selected based on its reliable, high-quality, and energy-efficient pumps and competitive pricing, besides DESMI’s proven excellent service and aftermarket support.
