Mowi Ireland has placed an order for a Racemaster net cleaning robot system for its southern site, near Castletownbere from Norwegian technology company MPI (Multi Pump Innovation).

To run the Racemaster 3.0 net cleaning robot, Mowi Ireland has also ordered a stainless steel D300 pump unit. The compact assembly saves valuable deck space, and six doors allow easy access for inspection and maintenance. This replaces their former MPI equipment of a D300 pump unit and RONC7.

‘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 Liam Doherty, Manager of MOWI Northwest Marine Operations Manager.

Mowi Ireland will use the new Racemaster 3.0 and associated power cabinet at its southern sites in County Cork. Mowi has farmed Atlantic salmon in Ireland since 1982.

The Racemaster 3.0’s cleaning width of 1.9 metres and four drums enables the robot to stretch the nets, which in turn improves climbing and cleaning performance and manoeuvrability on slack netting and during challenging conditions. The robot’s large discs come with multiple options for nozzle settings, which have resulted in further improved cleaning capacity and quality. In addition, MPI has designed the robot for easy access, which allows operators to maintain it on site without the need for an external technician.

‘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,’ said MPI’s CEO Kåre Myrvåg.
