Norwegian company Nessco has been chosen as supplier of compressor systems to the closed post-smolt facility FishGLOBE v5 currently being built at Stathelle in Telenmark.

Nessco will supply compressors, air dryers, pressure tanks and filter systems. Nessco will also deliver a blower that will be used to empty the globe and transfer the fish to a wellboat. The compressors are supplied as subcontractor to Sandnes-based Icon Systems, which is responsible for project management together with procurement and installation of technical and electronics equipment.

“We deliver some of the market’s most energy efficient air compressors and we understand that this has been a deciding factor when choosing the supplier,” explained Christian Ness, managing director of Nessco. “This is easy to understand when the FishGLOBE concept is developed with a view to making the fish farming industry more sustainable, profitable and with even better fish welfare.”

Storing 250 tonnes of fish, FishGLOBE v5 is being built by Uponor Infra and is a closed, floating post-smolt fish farm that measures 22m by 19m tall with a capacity of 3,500m3. The facility’s aim is to produce post-smolt up to one kilogram and to use the closed cage to protect the fish at the early stage in the ocean.

After construction is complete, the globe will be towed to Stavanger for installation of technical equipment. It will afterwards be taken to Oanes where the closed cage will be tested prior to the first full launch of smolt in October approximately 100 metres from shore in Lysefjorden.
