Lisbeth Plassen to head up newly merged seafood industry supplier.  Lisbeth Plassen has been appointed managing director of newly merged seafood industry software providers Naviaq and Seacloud, which mark the merger by re-branding to Seaqloud.

The two Bluefront Equity-owned companies announced their merger plan at the end of last year. The purpose is to provide customers in the aquaculture industry with a broader and more cost-efficient data-driven service offering.

“We have during the past few months conducted a technical and organisational merger, and developed a strategy to identify how we can jointly create even more value for our customers,” says Lisbeth Plassen, managing director of Seaqloud.

Plassen was previously the managing director of Naviaq.

“The board and shareholders are delighted that Lisbeth has agreed to lead the newly merged business and with how the integration process has been conducted. We also believe that the new company name – Seaqloud – preserves Naviaq and Seacloud’s legacy in an elegant manner,” says Charles Høstlund, chairman of Seaqloud.

Newly merged Seaqloud delivers sensor technology and software that provide a complete overview of the salmon’s marine environment, both above and below the surface. The company also delivers solutions that provide an overview of equipment, operations and logistics. Overall, the solutions enable standardization, quality assurance and streamlining of industry workflows for the fish farming industry.

Compliance and sustainability reporting

In addition to making fish farmers’ operations more efficient, Seaqloud’s systems make it easier to comply with new requirements for on-site environmental monitoring throughout the calendar year. The combination of sensors and tailor-made software ensures data of highest possible quality.

“Demands and expectations to the aquaculture industries are on the rise. Our solutions enable enhanced data control related to operations and environmental monitoring of fish farms. Such improved data gathering and presentation will, for example, make sustainability reporting better and more efficient,” says Lisbeth Plassen.

Seaqloud is headquartered in Trondheim, Norway. The company also has offices in Alta, Namsos and Tromsø, Norway.

Seafood investor Bluefront Equity is the largest shareholder in Seaqloud, which is one of the seafood industry’s largest SaaS players (Software-as-a-Service).
