24 August 2021 – Norwegian water treatment company Sterner AS has awarded PG Flow Solutions a contract to deliver 15 pump systems to the new smolt facility that Sterner is building for Sande Settefisk.
PG Flow Solutions will as part of the agreement supply nine of its large circulation pumps and six pumps for stripping of CO2, which means removing CO2 from water. PG Flow Solutions has not disclosed the value of the contract.
“The chairman of Sande Settefisk has stated that ‘it was undoubtedly Sterner’s technology that made us choose them to build this facility’. Our pumps are core components to maintain good fish health and production in the RAS facility. Hence, we hope that our technology has been a contributing factor to Sterner winning this prestigious assignment,” says Øyvind Berg, vice president of sales and marketing at PG Flow Solutions
PG Flow Solutions’ circulation pumps are capable of pumping large volumes of water with low pressure. They will be utilized to pump fresh water into the three departments of the RAS facility. Further, the CO2 stripper pumps help ensure solid production and low level of biological waste at the facility.
Sande Settefisk has awarded Sterner the contract to build the new smolt facility. The new facility will increase annual production from one to five million smolt at the company’s site in Sandane, Sogn og Fjordane county in Norway. Salmon and rainbow trout will be produced at the facility.
The plant will have three departments, each with a maximum feeding of 1,500 kilograms per day. It will consist of a hatchery with RAS technology and two grow-out departments, one with flow-through system and one with RAS technology.
“This is an ambitious investment by Sande Settefisk. We are very proud to be chosen as subcontractor to Sterner, who has built up a strong reputation for delivering fish-friendly water treatment solutions, says Øyvind Berg.
The pump systems will be assembled and tested at PG Flow Solutions’ fabrication and test facility in Sande, Vestfold county, Norway.
