Alfa Laval adds to aquaculture portfolio

Alfa Laval has acquired LiftUP, a Norwegian provider of waste extraction techniques for fish farms.
Located outside Bergen on the west coast of Norway, LiftUP manufactures, sells and installs pumps and cleansing equipment for the removing of useless fish, waste and sludge from open fish cages. pressure gauge 4 นิ้ว 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 enhances Alfa Laval Framo’s AquaStream pumping system which brings up fresh low temperature water with high oxygen ranges (from round 25m depth) and creates an ideal sea current, offering 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 inside the Marine Division.
“This acquisition is a useful addition to our sustainable aquaculture portfolio, increasing our providing of fish farming solutions that increases both the productivity and financial attractiveness of fish farming solutions while lowering its impact on the environment,” stated Sameer Kalra, president of Alfa Laval’s Marine Division.
