เกจวัดแรงดัน has acquired LiftUP, a Norwegian provider of waste extraction methods for fish farms.
Located outside Bergen on the west coast of Norway, LiftUP manufactures, sells and installs pumps and cleansing equipment for the removal of useless fish, waste and sludge from open fish cages. The compressed waste is saved in tanks that are shipped to a biogas facility, where it’s converted to renewable energy and a high-grade fertilizer.
The LiftUP system complements Alfa Laval Framo’s AquaStream pumping system which brings up contemporary low temperature water with high oxygen ranges (from round 25m depth) and creates a perfect sea present, providing circumstances much like deep fjords.
LiftUP, which had revenues of NOK75 million in 2020, will now be a part of Alfa Laval’s Pumping Systems enterprise unit throughout the Marine Division.
“This acquisition is a priceless addition to our sustainable aquaculture portfolio, increasing our providing of fish farming solutions that will increase both the productiveness and financial attractiveness of fish farming options while decreasing its impact on the setting,” stated Sameer Kalra, president of Alfa Laval’s Marine Division.
