Krüger Kaldnes, a Veolia Water Technologies subsidiary specialized in aquaculture, has recently commissioned one of the world’s largest post-smolt RAS facilities for Lerøy Sjøtroll Kjærelva, located in Fitjar, Norway. The facilities were designed according to the highest standards, with a strong focus on biosecurity, fish logistics, and footprint.

Lerøy Sjøtroll Kjærelva is a compact and efficient plant with a high focus on industrialization as well as a safe display of production for visitors.

About the facilities

The plant is made of twelve departments with two separate production lines. Each line consists of a hatchery, as well as Kaldnes® RAS departments for starting lining, growth, presmolt, and post-smolt. All RAS departments have the option of salinity adjustment. The delivery also includes all necessary support systems, such as freshwater and seawater inlet cleaning, energy plants, lime systems for PH regulation, vessel lighting, casing, dead fish and sludge plants. The plant is automated with PLS controls and control rooms (SCADA) and also includes a system for maintenance planning and management (MimerVA).
