The assembly site in Tromsdalen – with a straight view over Tromsøysundet to the city of Tromsø – was put into use in October 2018 on a 5-year contract. The site will complement AKVA group´s assembly sites at Mo i Rana, Sandstad and Bømlo along the Norwegian coast.

The 180 x 80-meter area will assemble pens destined for Vesterålen in the south and Finnmark in the north. Assembled pens will be moored in the Tromsøysund before they are towed by boat. All pipes are produced by AKVA group Helgeland Plast in Mo i Rana.

The pens are made from PE 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.
