Cermaq and BioSort are now in the process of realising their development permits for iFarm, and - following a thorough process they have selected ScaleAQ as their delivery partner for aquaculture equipment for the project.

ScaleAQ will supply its Midgard System, including a floating collar, winch and Midgard net, in addition to a net cover and net tube that will enclose the iFarm unit being developed by BioSort. The first edition of iFarm is scheduled to be deployed at the Martnesvika facility in Steigen in the summer of 2020.

'For us, it was crucial to bring on board a partner who offered the best expertise and has enough muscle to ensure that we make iFarm a success,' says the very satisfied Project Manager for iFarm at Cermaq, Karl Fredrik Ottem. 'ScaleAQ is a partner we have worked with before, and we know they deliver solid solutions. During the process, they have always put their expertise and skills at our disposal, and they laid the foundations for a great partnership. We are very pleased to have secured ScaleAQ as our collaborative partner for the iFarm project,' says Mr Ottem.

ScaleAQ brings together the best
ScaleAQ's strategy is to bring together the best people in the aquaculture supply industry in order to build a strong, skilled company that can serve as an important partner and adviser to aquaculture operators. This ensures that ScaleAQ is a key contributor to enhancing and ensuring development in the aquaculture sector. A vital part has been played in this by the creation of a new department working on innovation and development across the companies under the ScaleAQ umbrella.

'We are thrilled that Cermaq chose us,' says ScaleAQ CCO Stig Førre. 'We feel this is confirmation that our strategy of offering partnerships is the right one. In time, we will increasingly become an adviser rather than a seller.'

Wide-ranging cooperation behind iFarm
Cermaq, BioSort and ScaleAQ have formed a project group featuring complementary knowledge bases. This will ensure that the iFarm project is provided with the best possible conditions in which to succeed. Expertise from a range of areas will be combined to unite their forces.

'We are excited about working together with the best experts in their respective fields,' says Noralf Rønningen, R&D Manager and responsible for coordinating ScaleAQ's contribution. 'BioSort's experiences with the Tomra system and recording large volumes of data and then processing this will be highly transferable to the aquaculture sector. Together with Cermaq and our own expertise, we will be the absolute best.'
