Two closed cages to the Faroe Islands!
This autumn, two semi-closed cages will be delivered to Hiddenfjord in the Faroe Islands! The certified cages – with a total production volume of 30,000 m3 – will be the same model delivered to Cermaq Canada and SinkabergHansen.
A specially designed rigid floating collar produced in steel pipes ensures a buoyant enclosure where safe farming operations can be carried out.
A strong industrial PVC bag closes the production volume and four independent seawater in-takes pump large volumes of seawater from outside the semi-closed cage and from below the sea lice zone.
The cage environment is continuously monitored and documented through a sensor network. Oxygen is added automatically and as required. The control and management system provides automatic operation, monitoring and emergency alarms.
“This is an important agreement for us”!
Hiddenfjord is a pioneer in production
of large smolt on land and we look forward
to deliver 30,000 cubic meters of protected and
lice-free production volume at sea.
