Artec Aqua was the design and build contractor, delivering a turnkey installation to Hofset Aqua. The new facility is built on a site where the construction client previously operated smolt production.

This is the first project where we have designed and constructed a complete installation for trout farming.

The facility provides Hofset Aqua with a new “gear” in its project to become self-sufficient in fish for its sea farms.
