Danish suppliers hold a strong position in the aquaculture industry and are ready to meet the Norwegian and international markets at Aqua Nor in Trondheim Spektrum, when it opens on 24th August.
A group of 36 Danish companies will be present at the Pavilion of Denmark, where they will be showcasing a wide range of solutions developed based on many years of experience in the aquaculture industry. According to Martin Winkel Lilleøre, Head of Fish Tech, Danish Export Association, the organiser of the Pavilion of Denmark, the Danish companies bring technology that can support the aquaculture industry in the move towards a more energy efficient production of farmed fish.
‘Right now, we are really experiencing a move in the industry towards increased attention to circular thinking, optimisation and energy efficiency in production while still meeting the growing demand for farmed fish. Accordingly, this offers great potential for Danish suppliers that hold a position as front-runners in developing new technology with a strong focus on high quality solutions, cost-efficiency, and sustainability,’ he said.
One of the Danish companies at the Pavilion of Denmark is Danfoss, which works across the aquaculture sector’s entire value chain, supporting the industry in reducing the overall carbon footprint. Ian Jones, Head – Food Production at Danfoss Climate Solutions explained that the market is developing and demands new technology.
‘We see a significant increase in opportunities for land-based fish farms and many farm operators are looking into recirculation aquaculture systems that recirculate 95% of the water. used Facilities are getting larger and are producing fish to the final grow out and this demands new technology,’ he said. Danfoss Climate Solutions provide both technology, product expertise and test facilities and work closely together with fish farm operators and turnkey providers in selecting the right equipment and sizing it for their facilities.
‘The industry is looking for partners that can support them in the selection of the right equipment across the entire value chain. What we are seeing now is also the opportunity for utilising waste heat in the facility and working with the heating supplier in the municipal to put heat back into district energy,’ Ian Jones commented.
‘In addition to this, controlling temperature of the water tanks through the selection of heat pumps, chillers, AC drives, heat exchangers or the adoption of natural refrigerants by utilising our application knowledge is where we support farm operators and turnkey providers while always maintaining a focus on energy efficiency and ongoing maintenance costs.’
Danfoss A/S is part of the Pavilion of Denmark at Aqua Nor 2021 and is located in halls A-190 and D-375 at Aqua Nor
