Design optimisation: Gigante Salmon optimises the design of the production pools on Lille Indre Rosøya compared with the design published previously.
– We have devised a way to reduce our physical footprint while maintaining the planned production capacity, says Gigante Salmon AS CEO Helge E.W. Albertsen.
The orientation of the production pools has been altered, and inlet and outlet of water are now placed between pool 1 and 2/3. The design optimalisation has been approved by Rødøy Municipality.
– This will result in the facility being less visible from the water; now it blends even better into the surrounding terrain, Albertsen says.
Work establishing the Lille Indre Rosøy facility began on the 1’st of September, and the investment budget of NOK 445 million remains unchanged.
– I am very pleased that the construction work is proceeding as planned, Helge E. W. Albertsen says.
Report for H1 2021 is attached.
