AKVA group is the world’s leading supplier of both plastic and steel cages. Polarcirkel, the most recognized brand in aquaculture, invented the plastic cage concept in Norway in 1974, and has since supplied more than 40,000 cages worldwide.

All cages are installed by professional installation teams, and serviced by professional AKVA group service  technicians. AKVA group invests heavily in innovative and professional R&D in order to remain the leading supplier of cages; not only to improve products in the short term, but also to look into the future of tomorrow’s demands for cage technology. The Polarcirkel cage include smart solutions fo fully integrated walkways, sinker tube systems, safety floatation and system redundancies.

All-Plastic-Cages: A well proven concept in flexible cage design for extreme conditions...

Experience is a crucial success factor in the fish farming business. AKVA group (Polarcirkel) invented the plastic cage in 1974, and has since supplied more than 40.000 Polarcirkel Cages and 1.000 Polarcirkel Boats. The cages are made from raw materials especially suited for the dynamic loads of the sea, and are available in a wide range of models, shapes and sizes to suit individual needs. Many have tried to copy these products, but none have managed to match the genuine Polarcirkel designs and quality builds. Plastic cages started out as small single pipe circles, but now our largest models approach 200m circumference, and with floating pipes of 500mm diameter. Both circular and square cage systems are available. Combined with AKVA group´s global sales and service network, the Polarcirkel Cage is well proven and recognized worldwide.

Safe Polarcirkel walkways

In order to increase crew safety on fish farms, another Polarcirkel innovation was launched in 1999; the integrated Polarcirkel Walkways. The anti-skid walkway panels fit securely between the two floating pipes, forming a stable and safe working surface. The PE pressure moulded panels are held in place with strong and flexible continuous PE tubing inter-locking the panels to the PIM brackets.
