Scanship Holding has signed a contract with Billund Aquakulturservice for the delivery of a sludge handling system to Miami-based land farm Atlantic Sapphire.
The facility in Homestead will be built in several steps, and the contract includes supplying what it calls its “environmental protection and circular economy” technology for the first step.
“With this milestone contract, we are now in all three segments of a growing aquaculture market for smolt, seabased closed cage and landbased farms”, says CEO Henrik Badin in a statement.
The company provides advanced technologies for processing waste and purifying wastewater. The contract, inked through subsidiary Scanship, represents an expansion of Scanship Holding’s aquaculture business into overseas markets.
In May, the company won a contract to build a land-based freshwater facility for Scottish Sea Farms, which is expected to be completed in November.
Atlantic Sapphire, is a Norwegian outfit founded by Norwegian salmon entrepreneurs Johan Andreassen and Bjorn-Vegard Lovik which aims to eventually produce 90,000 tonnes of salmon per year near Miami, Florida.
