AKVA lands RAS project in Sweden
By Nestor Arellano
AKVA Group Land Based has signed an engineering agreement to deploy its sustainable zero water concept (ZWC) technology in a new recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) project in Sweden.
Karlstad-based aquaculture company Premium Svensk Lax was granted permission by Swedish authorities to produce 10,000 tons of salmon on a land-based facility in Värmland, Sweden. The company has chosen AKVA to deliver and install the necessary RAS equipment for the project.
AKVA’s ZWC technology consists of denitrification and phosphor removal that purifies the process water for re-use in the farming system and minimizes the discharge levels
The deliverables by AKVA group will include a complete RAS including fish tanks, fish handling for large salmon, feeding system and other auxiliary equipment to complete the facility.
“Obtaining authority approval for a land based fish farming project in Sweden is a major breakthrough achieved by Premium Svensk Lax,” said Jacob Bregnballe, sales director of Land Based Salmon Projects in AKVA group. “We look forward to continue our work with the ambitious team in Premium Svensk Lax.”
