Techano has received order for equipment for Norway Royal Salmon’s (NRS) newly-developed aquaculture facility, Arctic Offshore Farming. (AOF).
“In strong competition with leading players, Techano received orders for winches for net handling, chain jacks and a boat slip for the fish food barge,” says Øystein Bondevik, sales director at Techano. “With this, Techano confirms its world-leading position as a supplier of advanced cargo handling equipment in offshore aquaculture, a growing and important market for the future.”
The order goes into the series of several major orders to the offshore aquaculture industry.
Techano recently delivered rail mounted service units (RMSU) with several cranes per unit (cargo rail cranes) to the Nordlaks project Havfarm 1, which is under construction at the Chinese yard CIMC Raffles, Yantai.
“It is very nice to see that our targeted commitment to offshore aquaculture and fisheries over the years has borne fruit. We bring our high level of expertise from the offshore oil&gas industry into these new industries making them both safer and more efficient,” says CEO Morten Sørensen.
Norway Royal Salmon will build semi-submersible offshore fish farms, designed for very harsh offshore areas. The first plant will be located outside Troms and fish are planned in the cages during the autumn 2020.
