More acitivity and a new assembly site for pens in Northern Norway
The assembly site in Tromsdalen - with a straight view over Tromsøysundet to the city of Tromsø - was put into use in October 2018 on a 5-year contract. The site will complement AKVA group´s assembly sites at Mo i Rana, Sandstad and Bømlo along the Norwegian coast.
The 180 x 80-meter area will assemble pens destined for Vesterålen in the south and Finnmark in the north. Assembled pens will be moored in the Tromsøysund before they are towed by boat. All pipes are produced by AKVA group Helgeland Plast in Mo i Rana.
AKVA group has a presence in Tromsø through project management, sales and service. The office also has plastic welders for service assignments.
EXPERIENCE: The pens are assembled by highly experienced and certified personell. Here represented by Kim Rune Einmo.
