Swedish engineering company AFRY AB and Norwegian land-based aquaculture facility expert Morefish recently announced a partnership to provide comprehensive services to the recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) sector.
AFRY was founded in 1895 as a supplier of engineering, design, and advisory services. The company also provides land-based fish farms and project management services.
The company has over 1,000 employees and 12 offices covering all the regions and the major engineering fields. Its project management activities are carried out by Advansia, part of AFRY, which recently handled project management of Salmon Evolution’s land-based fish farm in Norway.
Morefish was establish in 2014. The company focuses on facility design, engineering of land-based facilities and fish biology. Morefish has a broad experience in the management and operation of flow-through and RAS facilities.
”We see this as a unique opportunity to partner up with a team with a proven track record in this specific field, to provide our clients with the right systems, buildings and operations,” said Claudio Ferro, leader of aquaculture business for AFRY. “Entering the Norwegian market is an important step in AFRY’s development strategy for the Blue Food business, and our mission to accelerate the transition towards a sustainable society.”
“Within land-based aquaculture, AFRY gained several references at international level including Swiss Lachs, in operations since 2017. AFRY’s forward-thinking approach has proven to be instrumental in creating significant value,” says Svein Martinsen, development manager at Morefish.
“From our side, Morefish aims to be the leading expertise in land-based fish farming, with a unique knowhow of technology and biology combined. In joint collaboration with AFRY, we will be able to engage in projects at any scale and ambition.”
