The purpose of the visit was to hold workshops with us and other partners in the project and to inspect construction on the site in Þorlákshöfn, where the salmon farm will be built. It was an important phase in the project, which aims to set up a modern high-tech salmon farm on land.

The visit was considered a success and had an important and positive impact on the progress of the project. The collaboration between the two companies has proven to be extremely successful, opening up new opportunities and strengthening the relationship between Iceland and Norway in the field of fish farming.

During the same trip, representatives of Artec Aqua met with their other partner companies in Iceland, which are many of the country's leading engineering firms. The cooperation of these companies ensures that the design of the project complies with Icelandic standards and environmental aspects.

We are excited about the continuation and continued cooperation between the companies. With shared knowledge and experience, we will create exemplary conditions and an environment for salmon farming on land that will promote increased sustainability and efficiency in the industry, which can become a new basic industry in the country.

Heimsókn Artec Aqua til Íslands

Dagana 10. – 12. júní var starfsfólk norska samstarfsfyrirtækisins okkar Artec Aqua í heimsókn á Íslandi. Tilgangur heimsóknarinnar var að halda vinnustofur með okkur og öðrum samstarfsaðilum í verkefninu og skoða framkvæmdir á lóðinni í Þorlákshöfn , þar sem laxeldisstöðin verður byggð. Var um að ræða mikilvægan áfanga í verkefninu, sem miðar að því að setja upp nútímalega hátækni laxeldisstöð á landi.

Heimsóknin þótti vel heppnuð og hafði mikilvæg og jákvæð áhrif á framgang verkefnisins. Samstarfið milli fyrirtækjanna tveggja hefur reynst afar farsælt, opnað ný tækifæri og styrkt tengslin milli Íslands og Noregs á sviði fiskeldis.

Í sömu ferð funduðu fulltrúar Artec Aqua með öðrum samstarfsfyrirtækjum sínum á Íslandi sem eru margar af helstu verkfræðistofum landsins. Samstarf þeirra fyrirtækja tryggir að hönnun verkefnisins samræmist íslenskum stöðlum og umhverfisþáttum.

Við erum spennt fyrir framhaldinu og áframhaldandi samstarfi fyrirtækjanna. Með sameiginlegri þekkingu og reynslu munum við skapa fyrirmyndar aðstæður og umhverfi fyrir laxeldi á landi sem mun stuðla að aukinni sjálfbærni og hagkvæmni í greininni sem getur orðið að nýrri undirstöðuatvinnugrein á landinu.

Um fyrirtækið

GeoSalmo er íslenskt fyrirtæki sem sérhæfir sig í sjálfbæru laxeldi á landi. Markmið okkar er að framleiða hágæða lax á umhverfisvænan hátt, með nýjustu tækni og bestu starfsháttum í greininni. Við leggjum mikla áherslu á nýsköpun og sjálfbærni, með það að leiðarljósi að tryggja heilbrigðan og ábyrgan vöxt í íslensku fiskeldi.
