The report from NIVA and UW shows that the concept gives good water quality and recorded stress levels among the lowest measured in onshore fish farming. Artec Aqua is your partner all the way from pre-project to completed facility. We deliver products and systems for flow through, regeneration and recirculation aquaculture systems (RAS). We have the knowledge and experience required to undertake turnkey projects for onshore aquaculture.

Design and budgeting

Artec Aqua has in-depth knowledge of production planning and system optimisation. We have designed several of Norway's most modern facilities for salmon smolt and broodstock. Our extensive experience of repair and newbuild work enables us to draw up good budgets.

Project management

Our project administration consists of project managers and a project secretary. We use external partners for site management, building and construction. We have extensive experience of different turnkey projects and technical installations in onshore aquaculture.

Turnkey delivery

We offer a wide range of products that meet the needs of clients with strict quality and functional requirements. For building and construction work, we are happy to organise competitive tendering among relevant suppliers based on the location of the construction site. Agreed mark-ups and an 'open book' policy are often the chosen solutions between our company and the client.

Balanced contracts

We have competence and experience in most types of contracts regulated by Norwegian standards. We adapt our contracts to meet clients' wishes  regarding liability and division of risk.

We have good experience of projects that are based on partnership agreements. They provide the best basis for improving the project as it progresses and do not tie the parties to the solutions that were agreed when the contract was signed. This provides the best possible basis for an open and good dialogue between the client and contractor throughout the project period.

Good relations and good cooperation

It is a clear goal for Artec Aqua that we continue to enjoy good relations with our clients after completion of delivery. Our follow-up does not end when the project has been commissioned and handed over.
