Trimara appoints Norwegian Agent to support AutoBoss sales in Norway. Arctic Havservice has been appointed as the agent for the AutoBoss net washing robot in the Norwegian market. The AutoBoss is a fully automated net washing machine that has been widely adopted in Canada, USA, Scotland, Greece and New Zealand with more than 27 units now successfully deployed.

Stewart Hawthorn, Director, Trimara Services, said:

“The AutoBoss is a fantastic machine that has been designed to be very reliable, easy to use and fully independent. Trimara provides excellence in commissioning, training and on-going post sale support of the AutoBoss. We wanted to make certain that customers in Norway get the same great post-sale training and support that we deliver in other parts of the world. Arctic Havservice fits the bill perfectly.”

Included in the purchase of an AutoBoss is a commissioning and training package. Operators and local mechanics are trained in daily operations as well as routine servicing operations. Arctic Havservice will provide these services in Norway as well as sales and marketing support.

“We are very excited to be bringing the AutoBoss to Norwegian farmers. When we present the concept to the industry here in Norway we can see that the Norwegian farmers really understand the benefits of automation; the AutoBoss is a machine that works independently of the support vessel. They like the idea of the machine washing the net without the need for an operator to constantly guide it. We are convinced that this robot will deliver lower cost and trouble-free net washing in Norway just as it has in every other major farming region,” said Helge Stormyr, Director of Artic Havservice.

Arctic Havservice is part of Bamek AS, an engineering and service company based in Ballangen, Norway. They have 12 employees and will provide the complete post-sale training and support package that has been an important part of Trimara’s AutoBoss success.

“I spent several days in Norway last week meeting some fantastic farmers and net washing contractors,” said Hawthorn. “Farms in Norway are ideal for the AutoBoss with well set-up pens that will be perfect for the AutoBoss to wash.”
