Right next to SalMar’s existing processing plant and headquarters in Frøya, ground was broken for InnovaMar, a unique project with a total investment budget for buildings and equipment of approx. NOK 420 million.
The building that will house the facility will be owned by a real estate company in which SalMar will be one of three shareholders along with Kverva AS and Abra Norge AS. SalMar will invest in a state of the art machinery that will be installed on the facility’s 16 000 square meters. In comparison the current facility is 3 000 square meters.
InnovaMar will be able to harvest 60,000 tonnes of salmon per shift per year, of which a significant proportion will be processed further before being shipped to customers and consumers throughout the world. Innovative use of technology will ensure a better quality end product, lower costs and an improved working environment for employees.
InnovaMar is big, both in terms of size and the level of ambition. It is probably the largest investment ever made on the Trøndelag coast, and its objective is clear: to be the world’s leading salmon harvesting and processing plant that will stand like a beacon in the industry for many years to come.
