2 Million Hatchery Recirculation Contract

CHILE - The Chilean division of Equipment and technology the AKVA group, has signed a contract with Sealand Aquaculture to build a salmon recirculation hatchery in Chiles Tenth (X) region.

This contract, another significant deal for the UNI Recirculation System, is the second AKVA delivery of a recirculation hatchery in Chile. The preceding system went to a large marine system for Kingfish (Seriola Ialandi) production in the north of the country.

The latest system has a capacity of six million smolts, in six cycles. It uses both freshwater and saltwater sources to create an optimal environment for all stages of the process from egg to smolt and implements the highest biosecurity standards.

With the purchase of UNI-Aqua and DANAQ, AKVA group has strengthened its position as the leading technology supplier to the aquaculture industry. It has formed a strong international team for the development of recirculation and land based systems, supported by the established local sales and service infrastructure.
