26 November 2020 - Nutreco has completed its further investment in Nordic Aqua Partners (NAP), the company behind a commercial scale Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS) facility which will be built in Ningbo, Zhejiang province, China.
Construction of the facility in Ningbo is expected to start at the beginning of 2021. Total production capability of the facility will be around 8,000 tonnes of Atlantic salmon by 2026.
Nutreco Chief Innovation Officer Viggo Halseth said: “The collaboration will allow Nutreco to further integrate farming and feed solutions towards optimal fish performance and will help further develop this highly sustainable form of aquaculture. It will also help us expand our learning about RAS and continue Skretting’s development of the best feed tailored for RAS systems.”
NAP Chairman Ragnar Joensen added: “We are thrilled to partner with Nutreco. Over the last year we have worked hard to develop the project to be investment ready and with the support from Nutreco and other co-investors we have completed detailed engineering and are soon ready to start construction.”
