Salmon farmer places order for a Racemaster net cleaning robot system from MPI (Multi Pump Innovation).
Mowi Ireland will use the robot across its southern sites, near Castletownbere, County Cork, Ireland, MPI wrote in a press release on Monday.
To run the Racemaster 3.0 net cleaning robot, Mowi Ireland has also ordered a D300 pump unit. This replaces their former MPI equipment of a D300 pump unit and RONC7. MPI has not disclosed the value of the contract.
“This kind of cage cleaning technology is the future for Irish fish farming and will be vital in the progress and continuity in maintaining the highest standards in farm management,” said MOWI Northwest Marine Operations Manager Liam Doherty.
“Our Racemaster 3.0 is one of the fastest net cleaning robots in the world, and have become a favoured net cleaner for many Irish fish farmers and service companies. Speed, reliability and low maintenance, energy efficiency, low maintenance and cleaning ability are given as the main reason for why they chose this net cleaner,” added MPI CEO Kåre Myrvåg.
