Scanship Holding has been awarded a contract with Billund Aquakulturservice to build a land-based freshwater facility for Scottish Sea Farms.
Once operational, the Barcaldine smolt facility will boast a production capacity of between 2.000 and 3.000-ton smolt per year.
The delivery of Scanship sludge handling technology forms part of the effluent treatment of wastewater, according to Scanship CEO, Henrik Badin.
He added: “Our technology, from the RAS system, will not only reduce pollution but will also open up circular economy concepts, including industry offsets of valuable nutrients.”
The contract, inked through subsidiary Scanship, represents an expansion of Scanship Holding’s aquaculture business into overseas markets.
Added Badin: “With this contract, we are moving our aquaculture business outside Norway, and we are thrilled to contribute our sustainable solutions to the aquaculture sector in Scotland.”
The installation is expected to be completed in November 2018.
