World's largest closed fish cage
Aquantum 500K is probably the world’s largest planned closed fish cage. It has a diameter of 120 m and a depth of 60 m. Aquantum 500K holds 500,000 m³, and one 500K corresponds to 1% of the total salmon production in Norway today. All operations are automated and integrated into the steel structure. The volume can be sectioned into three adjustable parts. These sections can be sealed apart, or separated by nets that allow water to flow through. These possibilities for sectioning effectively provide opportunities to sort, starve, process and deliver fish. Sludge is collected by sedimentation and transported continuously out of each farming cage and processed at the plant. The entire steel structure can be lifted out of water for washing, maintenance and disinfection without the use of service vessels. Aquantum 500K is patented.
