The Future of Fish Farming

  (NORWAY, 12/21/2016)

Zenitel, a leading provider of Critical Communications over IP, is contributing to the world’s first aquaculture development project, which in time will practice fish farming in far offshore sites.

The ocean fish farm project is developed by Norwegian company Ocean Farming AS. The purpose is to make fish farming more effective, and despite the cost related challenges, to be able to deliver fish directly from their natural environment. In addition, production is expected to increase up to tenfold thanks to offshore farming.

The project’s objective is to develop technologies that will make it possible to establish aquacultural activities in areas of more open water which have not so far been used. 

Zenitel has delivered a full communication package to the Ocean Fish Farm Project via Kongsberg Maritime Engineering, containing an exchangeless Pulse system, Mototrbo, UHF and Antenna Entertainment System.

The Ocean Fish Farm project is the world's first offshore aquaculture development project. Kongsberg Maritime Engineering has the role of integrator and complete package supplier. The innovative facility makes the most of the best Norwegian industry has to offer. Zenitel’s leading-edge system is therefore well positioned to help the project reach its objectives.

Vingtor-Stentofon Pulse is a Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) based intercom system for up to 36 users in total.

Small, but powerful the Pulse system contains 16 telephone stations with signalling devices and shore line connection (SIP to SIP) for installation. The UHF package consists of Motorola handheld radios, mobile radios, repeater and is interfaced with the PA (Public Address) system. The Antenna Entertainment System will provide TV/R antenna signal to eight accommodation cabins for employees.

The project utilizes existing technologies from the Norwegian fish farming whilst collaborating with the offshore oil and gas industries to resolve the many challenges. The result is a paradigm shift in salmon farming. With underwater cameras and other devices, they will be able to control and monitor feeding and the overall physical environment of the sea.

The other advantage from this offshore facility is how Ocean Farming are able to use steel cages, which should lead to a substantial reduction in the number of fish that escape. The project is not limited to only salmon; the goal is to include other types of fish in the future. By controlling and monitoring aqua biological conditions they will be able to provide the most suitable environment for the fish.
