Located in Norway's aquaculture hub, Svaberget Smolt represents Sinkaberg-Hansen's entry into Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS), enhancing the company's production capabilities. The facility aims for a production capacity of 2000 tons per year, equivalent to about 5 million smolt, significantly advancing salmon farming practices with a peak feeding load of 14,500 kg per day. This initiative underscores Sinkaberg-Hansen's focus on sustainability, incorporating water conservation, waste management, and environmental stewardship.

Delivered by AKVA group Land Based, the facility features:

  • Five RAS systems for precise water quality control, optimizing smolt growth and minimizing environmental impact with the AKVA group Zero Water Concept.
  • A hatchery with advanced incubation technology for optimal egg hatching and early development conditions.
  • Infrastructure and auxiliary systems including intake valve, buffer, and sludge holding tanks for enhanced operational efficiency.
  • Thirty-nine steel fish tanks designed for smolt rearing, prioritizing fish welfare and growth.

As Sinkaberg-Hansen's first venture into RAS technology, Svaberget Smolt marks a significant step in the company's journey towards sustainable aquaculture, positioning Sinkaberg-Hansen at the forefront of the industry's technological innovation and smolt production evolution.
