Sterner AS has selected PG Flow Solutions to deliver 15 pump systems for the new smolt facility that it is building for Sande Settefisk in Sandane, Norway.

The new facility will increase annual smolt (salmon and rainbow trout) production from one million to five million at the company’s site in Sandane.

PG Flow Solutions will supply nine of its large circulation pumps and six pumps for stripping CO2 from water.

The circulation pumps are capable of pumping large volumes of water with low pressure. They will be used to pump fresh water into the RAS (recirculating aquaculture system) facility’s three departments. The CO2 stripper pumps will help ensure solid production and low levels of biological waste at the facility.

The plant will have three departments, each with a maximum feeding of 1500 kilograms per day. It will consist of a hatchery with RAS technology and two grow-out departments, one with a flow-through system and one with RAS technology.

“This is an ambitious investment by Sande Settefisk. We are very proud to be chosen as subcontractor to Sterner, who has built up a strong reputation for delivering fish-friendly water treatment solutions,” said Øyvind Berg, vice president of sales and marketing at PG Flow Solutions.

The pump systems will be assembled and tested at PG Flow Solutions’ fabrication and test facility in Sande, Norway.
