RAS supplier NOFITECH will deliver another facility in Japan

Nofitech has previously delivered four RAS facilities to Japan. Two facilities for grow-out, one for the production of Rainbow trout and one for the production of Pacific salmon. The other two facilities are for smolt production. This time, Nofitech will deliver a grow-out system for the production of Rainbow trout to a new Japanese customer. Construction will start in 2020.

CEO of Nofitech Robert Hundstad is very pleased that the company has signed another contract for the delivery of RAS facility in Japan.

“For many years we have developed a close and solid partnership with our customers in Japan. This, combined with good results from Nofitech facilities, has ensured that Nofitech was the perfect choice for the construction of a new facility. The fact that we are now delivering to a new Japanese customer also shows that our long-term presence in the Japanese market is delivering results. We see that partners in the Japanese market demand facilities that are safe and easy to operate. This is achieved through ModulRAS, which are standardized, compact and cost-effective systems designed for operation with sea or fresh water. In addition, ModulRAS can be delivered for all parts of the production process, from smolt, postsmolt, grow-out and broodstock, which provides extra security for the customers and at the same time flexible possibilities for a future expansion of production”.

In addition, through its Nofitech Academy, Nofitech will provide courses and training as an integral part of the delivery. R&D leader Kari Attramadal emphasizes the importance of good training of operating personnel and managers. “Training is essential to achieve effective and safe operation. This is extra important in new systems where the employees have not yet gained full experience. We at Nofitech have therefore developed a comprehensive training program that covers both the biological and the technical parts of our ModulRAS. That this is now in high demand is very positive”.
