Fredrikstad Seafoods proceeds with expansion plans

January 04, 2018

While phase 1 construction for 2000 tons capacity for salmon and a slaughtering facility are in progress in Fredrikstad, engineering is now on a fast track for development for the adjacent 16,000 m2 landsite.

 

Phase 2 expansion will involve the addition of 4200 tons new production capacity and a smolt facility. Construction of phase 2 is set to start in 2018, pending permits, and will be based on a new generation of designs, developed to achieve optimal capital efficiency and fish welfare. A range of new innovations will be implemented to improve the performance of the land-based production method on a true industrial scale.

 

The phase 2 facility is a pilot for the next expansion projects planned by Nordic Aquafarms.
