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 with permission for increased density, can potentially produce the equivalent of 2% of the 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 move fish. Sludge is collected by sedimentation and processed at the plant. The entire steel structure can be lifted out of water for washing, maintenance and disinfection on site without the use of service vessels. The Aquantum 500K technology is patented.
