Turn your supplier into your partner...
Turning the key to a better operation
A complete solution is a new concept in the aquaculture industry.
Choosing a AKVA group supplier is like choosing a business partner
to help you plan and shape the best possible aquaculture operation
based on your initial idea, challenge or problem. Your partner will
take part in the planning and design of solutions to make your new
farm optimal with regards to biological, economical- and technical
risk, mechanical system design, site evaluation, system drawings,
project planning, construction, assembly, startup and training of
managers and personnel.
Project planning Hardware solutions Budgeting Software solutions
Two heads think better than one, says
an old proverb. In terms of planning an
aquaculture operation it translates into
allowing people with different know-how-
to work together in the planning process.
Letting AKVAs technical experts team up
with your own operational experts will
allow a more holistic view of the planned
Are you happy with standard solutions or
does your operation or employees require
fne tuning of some of the hardware?
In a carefully planned turn-key project,
specifc hardware requirements can be
taken into account at an early stage so
they wont add extra costs or delays
along the way.
Budgeting means planning ahead to
create an image of the size and shape
of your operations. It is imperative for
the fnance- and sales department in
their jobs. Allowing technical conside-
rations into the budget will also help
you identify constraints or bottlenecks
in your operation.
I know the software can do it, if I can
only fgure out how. We have heard it
before, and aim to make all software
solution a user-friendly and integrated
part of your operation. This will turn it
from a headache to a tool that helps
you communicate with your equipment,
and helps your fsh talk back to you.
Many think instruction manuals are tedi-
ous, they are, but still an important part
of successful farm operations. Suffcient
training of your staff and managers will
minimize the amount of frustration that
builds up while browsing through a man-
ual in search of a solution to a problem.
Training of staff, face-to-face is always
a smart investment.
Minimizing risks...
AKVA group is the only supplier
with the capability to offer both cage
farming and land based aquaculture
operations with complete technical
solutions. Being a dedicated AKVA
group partner means leaving respon-
sibility for technical matters to
external experts, while allowing
your own personnel to focus on
biology and production.

AKVA groups team of professionals
knows what is important for your
success in the aquaculture industry.
We are able and willing to take on
the responsibility for delivering
technology with the quality, standards
and service level needed to minimize
the risk of technical problems which
may lead to production down-time
and associated financial losses.

We will ensure the integration and
quality of our work by undertaking
thorough and detailed planning and
pre-project design of your farm.
This will enable you to focus on
biological and financial performance,
while the rest is handled by us.
AKVA group offers complecte intergrated
packages with all the equipment and
software you need for your operations.
Plug and play may be the preferred mode
for anyone wanting to connect two pieces
of equipment together. In an aquaculture
facility, putting the pieces together may
not be quite as simple although it might
seem like it when our experts are at
work. Professional installations prevents
future headaches and costly mistakes.
An operation is only as good as the soft-
ware needed to manage it. Effcient farm
control also needs effcient and timely
software support that can lend
a helping hand in times of trouble.
AKVA group has an entire department
dedicated to this task, ready to step in
to get you back on track.
The start-up phase is critical to the
success of any farm, and having a
system expert on site for support will
ensure optimal utilization of both your
hardware- and software solutions.
AKVA group offers full Farm Manage-
ment Support to help fne-tune your
site and for consultation and staff
training, ensuring the best possible
Systems running year on end, sometimes
in extreme weather, will always be sub-
ject to extensive wear and tear. In order
to maintain steady operations, preventive
service ageements and proper mainte-
nance are critical. AKVA groups Service
department has decades of experience in
supporting and doing maintenance under
such conditions.
Being able to run the farm by remote
control, also means being able to hand
over certain operations to people located
off-site. AKVA group now offers a new
operation package - the farm manager
can focus completely on the fsh, while
our technical staff looks after the
technical equipment.

AKVA group, the leader in aquaculture software
More than 30 years of innovative solutions
Rules and regulations
Tailor-made solutions for cost effective aquaculture
AKVA groups software division has its origins in the
merger between Maritech and Superior Systems.
Both companies were market leaders within their
fields; Superior Systems within operational control
of marine and freshwater operations, and Maritech
in systems for packing, sales, logistics and financial
management of seafood production.
AKVA group has since then safeguarded their unique
position, and has developed the integration between
the systems even further. As a result, this is the most
robust, flexible and user-friendly aquaculture software
on the market. Integrated companies are able to trace
every single fish from broodstock to the end customer,
including audit trails, documentation and financial
AKVA group developed the first solutions for the seafood
industry as long ago as in 1978. The very first system
was run on an office computer, creating simple final
notes for fish-buyers in Norway. From here packing
systems for weighing and labeling salmon and trout
were developed, followed by even more sophisticated
aquaculture management solutions. This allowed for
detailed farm records, as well as accurate planning
and forecasting. Thereafter, the sales and logistics
solutions adapted especially to fish trading were
launched. Our software is in use by most Norwegian
aquaculture and fishery companies, a strong testi-
mony to the fact that AKVA group offers aquaculture
software solutions that are second to none!
The requirements imposed by national authorities for
the aquaculture industry are in most countries changing
rapidly and becoming increasingly more demanding.
AKVA groups Fishtalk solutions provide a sound basis for
certification in accordance to the Global Gap and BR C
quality standards. These require documentation for food
safety, as well as for Health, Safety and Environment
standards (HSE). This includes HACCP. Fishtalk also
simplifies the mandatory reporting to the authorities.
With decades of experience to draw from, our profes-
sional consultants will act as both partners and advisors.
This in turn ensures the best possible return investment.
It is not just a question of installing the software;
training and knowing how to use it correctly is equally
important. Our consultants will help you optimize your
farming process; they will ensure that you deliver
the correct product to the correct customer every
time; they will help you maintain recordkeeping to
a minimum; they will enable you to target your sales
to the market offering the best price, and so on.
When providing our software division with your
requirements, we will customize the solutions to
make your business as efficient as possible.
Intelligent dedicated software ensures safer and more cost effective solutions

- the worlds leading cage supplier
AKVA group is the worlds leading supplier of both plastic
and steel cages. Polarcirkel, the most recognized brand
in aquaculture, invented the plastic cage concept in Norway
in 1974, and has since supplied more than 42,000 cages
worldwide. The renowned Wavemaster steel cages originated
in Ireland in 1985, and more than 12,000 cages have since
been delivered globally.

In order to ensure the highest possible quality, competitive
pricing and on-time deliveries, the cages and components
are manufactured in many different regions. All cages are
installed by professional installation teams, and serviced
by professional AKVA group service technicians.

AKVA group invests heavily in innovative and professional
R&D in order to remain the leading supplier of cages;
not only to improve products in the short term, but also
to look into the future of tomorrows demands
for cage technology.

Experience is a crucial success factor in
the fish farming business. AKVA group
(Polarcirkel) invented the plastic cage
in 1974, and has since supplied more
than 42.000 Polarcirkel Cages and
12.000 Polarcirkel Boats. The cages
are made from raw materials especially
suited for the dynamic loads of the
sea, and are available in a wide range
of models, shapes and sizes to suit
individual needs.
Many have tried to copy these products,
but none have managed to match
the genuine Polarcirkel designs and
quality builds. Plastic cages started out
as small single pipe circles, but now
our largest models approach 200m
circumference, and with floating pipes
of 500mm diameter. Both circular and
square cage systems are available.
Combined with AKVA groups global
sales and service network, the
Polarcirkel Cage is well proven and
recognized worldwide.
Safe Polarcirkel walkways
In order to increase crew safety on fish
farms, another Polarcirkel innovation
was launched in 1999; the integrated
Polarcirkel Walkways. The anti-skid
walkway panels fit securely between
the two floating pipes, forming a
stable and safe working surface.
The PE pressure moulded panels are
held in place with strong and flexible
continuous PE tubing inter-locking
the panels to the PIM brackets.

Polarcirkel quality and certifcation
All Polarcirkel Cages are manufactured and assembled
in accordance with AKVA groups Quality Assurance
System (ISO 9001) which is certifed by DNV
(Det Norske Veritas). All cages in Norway are designed
in accordance with NS9415 (Norwegian Standard 9415
for cage farming equipment to prevent fsh escape).
Polarcirkel Cage History
32 33
Proven Sinker Tube concept
As cages grew bigger and nets became
harder and harder to control in strong
currents, Polarcirkel invented the sinker
tube concept in 1989. A concept that
later has been adopted as an industry
standard. The Polarcirkel Sinker Tube
consists of a 200-280mm heavy walled
PE pipe filled with steel wires (typically
20-70 kg/m). It is supported by strong
ropes fastened through the stainless
steel sleeve in the PIM brackets.
Polarcirkel cage sizes
The most popular models
are the circular cages in 315,
400, 450 and 500mm floating
pipes with circumferences
from 90-160m.
Polarcirkel Cages - designed for rough conditions...
Strong Polarcirkel PIM Brackets
Extensive use of PE (Polyethylene) in our PIM (Pressure Injection
Moulded) brackets eliminates corrosion, minimizes expensive and
difficult maintenance, and substantially increases cage lifespan
compared to steel brackets. This is especially important in areas
with high salinity, warm water temperatures and choppy seas.
Only strong and high quality PE is used for Polarcirkel brackets,
while many suppliers use weak and low quality rotationally moulded
Medium and Low Density Polyethylene. This makes the Polarcirkel
brackets superior in terms of structural strength, durability and UV
resistance. This is especially important in high energy offshore farm
sites and areas with high UV radiation from the sun.
For areas prone to icing, such as Norway and Canada, another critical
advantage of the Polarcirkel HDPE brackets is that they will not ice up
as steel brackets do. Icing is a dangerous safety problem for all floating
structures, including cages. Heavy ice overloads the cage, reduces
stability and jeopardizes overall cage integrity. As the name indicates,
the Polarcirkel cages are well suited for extreme arctic conditions!
All Polarcirkel Cage designs are carried out by our professional R&D
department. Independent marine engineering consultants are also
involved in advanced static and dynamic load calculations to ensure all
designs meet or exceed expected real life loads as well as applicable
industry standards.
AKVA groups proven sinker tube system
uses a vertical rope. No metal parts,
such as chain and shackles, can there-
fore cause damage to the net.
All the weight of the net and sinker
tube system is supported by the
floating pipe - NOT by the handrail.
When harvesting, the net volume is
reduced by lifting vertical ropes of the
sinker tube system. This leaves
no load on the handrails.
Forget corrosion! Photo showing

A wide range of flexible Polarcirkel
cages are designed for extreme weather
conditions, such as here on Norways
stormy coastline at 70 North.
Polarcirkel cages are known for their
strong railings and high reserve buoyancy,
which is crucial in case of sudden
excessive net loads or icing.

Extra wide catamaran design
Polarcirkels extra wide catamaran design ensures
maximum cage stability and railing stiffness. Combined
with strong stanchions and interlocked railing design,
this make the Polarcirkel Cages safe and easy to work
on without sacrificing seaworthiness and strength.
Due to its low weight-to-strength ratio, the Polarcirkel
Cages have very high reserve buoyancy compared to
cages with other brackets. This easily results in our
larger cages having up to 4-5 metric tons higher reserve
buoyancy. This substantially increases cage safety
margins in case of sudden operational problems that
weigh down the cages (icing, mass mortality, storms,
strong currents etc.).
Unique Polarcirkel redundancy systems
In addition to obvious redundancy safety factors such
as individually secured brackets, individually secured
anchoring connector and Styrofoam inside floating
pipes, Polarcirkel also offer an optional secondary
continous safety chain inside the outer floating pipe.
This will serve as an unbreakable barrier in case the
cages integrity is severely compromised. Keeping
the chain inside the pipe leaves it out of the weather
until needed and maintains a clean exterior cage
layout. All of this makes the Polarcirkel Cages the
safest and most escape proof cages on the market!
Net Hooks & Accessories
A wide range of integrated accessories are available
for the Polarcirkel Cages, including:
Various types of Polarcirkel Net Hooks.
These systems simplify net handling on the cages and
provide a secure attachment point for your nets.
Polarcirkel Center Support Stands. These are placed in
the center of the cage to keep the bird nets high
off the water. Standard sizes from 1.5m to 5m high.
Custom sizes are also available.
Feed systems, cameras and environmental
sensors, wireless networks, cage lighting etc.
Most plastic cages are moored in a grid
system and include sinker tube, center
support stand, feed system/barge,
cameras and sensors.
Polarcirkel Cages are used all over
the world, such as here at a Vietnam
cobia farm.
Various types of net hooks are available.
The systems simplify net handling on the
cages and provide a secure attachment
point for your nets.
New Polarcirkel Anchoring Connector
We are now introducing a new and innovative anchoring
connector system that simplifies the anchoring process
and improves the structural strength of the cage when
anchored at the site. This anchoring connection is also
NS9415 certified. (Norwegian Standard 9415).

Main design features include:
Practical and safe shackle point connection
No corrosion
No boat damage or obstruction from anchor lines
Separates cage bracket from anchor load
Allows for custom positioning to match anchor
grid system
Primary load to inner floating pipe that carries
main net loads
Secondary back-up connection to outer floating pipe
Extra wide load distribution sleeve eliminates point
Freely rotates anchor load perpendicular to the
floating pipe
PE sleeve on PE pipe minimizes pipe chafe
Sideways locking system allows for safe angular
The new Polarcirkel anchoring connector eliminates most
of the weak points typical of steel brackets: Corrosion,
damage to work boats, sideways jamming of brackets,
chafe on floating pipes, need for chafe sleeves, point loading
floating pipes, bending connection lugs, icing loads etc.

Wavemaster is the worlds leading
supplier of steel cages with close
to 10.000 cages delivered since
1985! The cages provide an ideal
platform for fish farming. Wide
non-slip walkways with high free-
board around all sides of the cages
allow the operator full flexibility of
operation and easy access from
cage to cage. This is becoming
essential for good husbandry and
maintenance. The compactness
and simplified mooring arrange-
ments make Wavemaster Steel
Cages a very attractive option
for many sites.
The cages are available in a wide
range of models, single- or double
string systems and sizes up to
40x40m to suit individual needs.
The patented moulded rubber hinge system allows the cage structure
to adapt to the wave profile, thereby reducing loads on the member
and ensuring longer life of the cages.
The Wavemaster Steel Cages include
smart solutions for fully integrated
non-slip walkways, net supports and
floats with self-draining top.
Wavemaster has a proven track record
of installations on a wide range of sites
and in many different climates around
the world, such as here in Chile.
The handrail system provides tie off
points at the main walkway level, posts
to support the net and removable hand-
rails. They can easily be removed while
the net is tied to the posts.
The upper surface of each float incorporates sloping surfaces so that any
feed or debris deposited can be washed away by wave action or water
hose. High reserve buoyancy is crucial in case of sudden excessive net loads.

Wavemaster - a trusted steel cage concept...
Wavemaster began producing steel cages in Ireland in 1985,
in Canada in 1988 and in Chile in 1990, and today supplies
cages to all world markets. The large number of cages
currently in use on a wide variety of sites, operating under
diverse wave and wind conditions world wide, has demon-
strated the reliability of the Wavemaster design. Produced
locally and designed to suit local markets, Wavemaster
provides the most cost effective steel cages available to
the industry. Steel cages are suitable for sites with moderate
exposure and strong tidal currents. Combined with a global
sales and service network, the Wavemaster Steel Cages
are a well proven concept indeed!
Steel cages allow for a simplifed
mooring arrangement due to its
system structure and design.
The wide walkways provide superior
support for predator nets, well spaced
from the fish net. This is a crucial
feature for some areas.
A wide range of strong, high quality
mooring systems are also available
in various dimensions.
Feed Barge
Safe and stable cage construction
built to withstand icing and rough
Feed barges can be moored at the
end of steel cages and provide easy
access to the cages for farm staff.
Wavemaster steel cages are also available
with driveable centre walkway, such as
here in British Columbia, Canada.
Hot dip galvanizing
All components are hot dipped galvanized
after manufacture. This has proven to be
the most effective and durable coating
for use on fsh pen structures.
Ongoing R&D
All of the Wavemaster designs are
continuously updated to refect operating
experience and the changing work
practises of the fsh farmers using the
equipment. This continues to make
Wavemaster the leading edge steel cage
in the fsh farming industry.
Secure foats
Two different types of foats are available.
The standard type provides normal free
board while the high type provides extra
high free board. All are rotationally
moulded, UV stabilized polyethylene flled

High durability
Escape prevention
Maximized water fow
No need for antifouling paint
Easily recyclable material
The unique Polarcirkel EcoNet concept can
totally change todays fshfarming! This long-
life net technology has been used to make over
4000 fsh farming nets in Japan since 1988,
in addition to many other usages including
shark nets, rock slide nets etc.
The EcoNet is made from very strong but light
weight PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) and has
some superior characteristics, including: being
virtually escape proof, predator proof and has
a 20-year lifespan compared to nylon nets that
often only last 4-7 years. The non-fbre wire has
very hard surface that resists marine fouling
and makes it easy to clean in the water using
Idema Net Cleaners. This also eliminates the use
of antifouling paints and ongoing net changes.
The Polarcirkel EcoNet semi-rigid structure keeps
the net shape intact to maximize water fow and
oxygen to the fsh. PET is easily recyclable!

Polarcirkel EcoNet - High durability
and escape prevention...
New ills.
The semi-rigid structure keeps the net
shape intact to maximize water fow and
oxygen supply to the fsh.
A 20cm long cut in regular netting will
open wide and the fsh will escape.
Net sample after 20 years use in seawater
in Japan! Full tensile strength is retained.
Fish farm net deformation and loads are affected by three main
factors: CURRENTS + NET TYPE (rigidity, drag, strenght) + NET
WEIGHTS. The unique semi-rigid and low-drag EcoNets maintain
a superior net shape in strong currents compared to conventional
nets, thus providing optimum water fow and oxygen levels for
your fsh. Less net weights are then required to keep EcoNets in
place. The result is reduced deformation/drag, reduced risk of
net chafe/damage and reduced overall displacement (weight) of
the entire cage system. This means less load on the mooring
systems and more reserve buoyancy for the cages.
The EcoNets are made to withstand rough conditions, stormy weather, predators,
biological or mechanical damage.
The same cut in an EcoNet will tend to
stay closed due to the double twisted
thermo formed semi-rigid structure
and non-tearing weaving.
The new PET netting wire retains tensile
strength for 20 years below and above
water. This graph shows results of long-
term outdoor exposure tests.

Extra strong long-life nets
The hard non-fbre wire reduce settling of
marine fouling and makes the net easy to
clean with Idema Net Cleaners. This also
eliminates the use of anti-fouling paints.

The shape of the EcoNet wire mesh is designed
to remain intact if a single wire is cut. This means
the mesh will remain stable and the shape intact
with minimum negative effect of the strength of
the net cage structure. The Polarcirkel EcoNet is
made from very strong but light weight PET,

Polarcirkel EcoNet is available in two different mesh sizes:
Easy to install - easy to keep clean
Once the Polarcirkel EcoNet is installed in the cage there is no need
to disconnect it during normal operations. Exceptions will be in case
of net damage. The EcoNets are cleaned in the water and are not
taken out for cleaning or antifouling.
Net handling and fsh husbandry
Although Polarcirkel EcoNet is a semi-rigid net, it can still be handled
in very similar ways to a nylon net. This includes drying up the net
for crowding fsh during harvest, fastening the net to the cages and
attaching sinker tubes etc. However, as the EcoNet is being tested
and used in new markets and for new species, new and better tech-
niques will continue to be developed to simplify net handling and
ensure the best possible fsh husbandry.
Polarcirkel EcoNet is approved for
fshfarming use according to Norwegian
Standard 9415 (NS9415).
Predators Biological
Long term testing shows that Polarcirkel EcoNets retain full strength
even after years of exposure to weather, sunlight, chemicals, seawater,
abrasion and the sharp teeth of various fsh and predators. Most other
fbre type netting degrade relatively fast.
Four great challenges...

Idema Net Cleaning Systems
Idema Net Cleaners were launched in 1987, and are today
renowned for quality, high performance and their ease of use.
The frst Net Cleaners had single 30cm diameter cleaning discs,
operated from the cage edge using a shaft. Underwater pressure
washing of cages containing fsh has become even more common
as the requirements to environmentally friendly aquaculture in
larger cages provides the best scale of economics.
With this in mind we have developed and improved the Idema
Net Cleaners and can now present the best range of Net cleaners
and high pressure pumps ever. This combination offers you the
most effecient cleaning system suited for all types and sizes
of cages.
Effective Net Cleaning ensures optimum
oxygen levels and faster growth...
This curve is almost

The width of the cleaning path ranges from

Strong marine fouling on the net will
reduce the oxygen supply. Algea growth
can increase bacterial loads and cause
diseases and stress in the biomass.
It is proven that increased marine fouling
leads to reduced water fow. As a result,
the oxygen rich water will mostly fow

In Net Cleaning, filtered high pressure sea water is used to
remove marine fouling on the nets. Idema Net Cleaners use
rotating cleaning discs mounted on support frames in various
shapes and combinations. We use rugged, tailor-made high-
pressure pumps to drive the cleaning discs. The cleaning
process starts with submerging the frame on the inside of the
net, using only sea water under high pressure. Idema cleaning
systems do not use chemicals or scrubbing action making
them environmentally friendly while ensuring minimal wear
on the nets.
This Optical Oxygen Sensor connects
directly to the feed system and can stop
the feeding at low oxygen levels.
Idema Net Cleaners also keep nets clean
in tropical waters, as here in Thailand.
It is extremly important to keep the
weight of the cages light in cold periods.
Icing and fouling can indirectly cause
breakdowns and serious damage.
The width of the cleaning
path ranges from 80cm, up
to 290cm for the largest
model using 7 washing discs.
The discs are generally
delivered in 40cm diameter
but can also be ordered
in 30cm or 50cm
Heavy Duty Cleaning discs with smooth front
rail in stainless steel ensures minimal wear of
the net. The discs have low resistance in the
water, extra high rotation speed - from 750 to

High quality - economic solutions
The main purpose for a feed barge is to provide the
most efficient, optimized and reliable feed system
for your farming operations. The second purpose
is to provide a safe and seaworthy barge that can
withstand the forces of nature at your farmbase site.
Historically, feed systems have been built into
feed barges. AKVA group has
now turned this around and
builds feed barges around feed
systems! This means that the
entire feed system installation
must first and foremost be
optimal internal feed pipe
design (stainless piping,
routing, sweeps, connections,
vertical lift, air cooling, air
control system, selector valve
positioning etc.). This is now
built into all Wavemaster
Feed Barges.
Each individual barge model has also
been optimized to ensure the lowest
possible cost compared to size of
barge. As a result, the AKVA group
Feed Barges are the most cost
efficient barges on the market with
no material or space wasted.

Full control of the feeding process from silo to cage...
Feed silos
Once the feed has entered the internal stainless
feed pipes, the selector valve sends it to the
correct cage via flexible HDPE feed pipe.
Each silo can hold from 15 - 70 mtons of
feed and connects to a FEED CARE CERTIFIED
doser valve that transfer feed into the
stainless feeding pipe.
Most feed barges are supplied with Quattro
feed system (4 feed lines). The Blowers
connect directly to efficient cooling pipes
outside the underwater hull.
Up to 12 parallel feed lines...
All barges have built-in Akvasmart CCS Feed Systems, and the largest
models are available with up to 12 parallel feed lines. Most are supplied
with 90mm Quattro systems (4 feed lines), but some with Twin (2) and
some Hexa (6). The Feed Blowers are installed in the machine room
together with the control cabinets. Cooling pipes for the feed transport
air are welded to the outside hull in a protected position below the water
line. The standard dimension is 110mm in order to prepare all barges
for future expansions.
The feed enters the air flow through the Doser Valves and is then blown
through seamless stainless pipes inside the barge and up to the Selector
Valves on the exterior main deck platforms. From there, the feed continues
through the PE feeding pipe to each cage, where Rotor Spreaders
distribute the feed onto the cage surface. The entire process and feed
system is FEED CARE CERTIFIED. All optional equipment, such as networks
for integrated camera-, pellet- and environmental sensors is installed at
the shipyard. The barges are ready for start-up and feeding once it is
moored at the farm site and feeding pipes connected. All
systems are operated from the comfortable main Control Room, with
great panoramic views of the cages.
All barges have large built-in bulk feed silos with weather proof loading
hatches at the upper deck level. The standard loading hatches are
180x240cm with two smaller hatches inserted. This enables maximum
utilization of available silo volume when fully loading the silos. The number
of silos ranges from 4 to 24 (see table), but most barges have the optimal
8 silos for the Quattro feed systems. The silo capacity range from 15-70
metric tons depending on the model (silo capacities are based on salmon
feed density of 650kg/m3). The feed is normally loaded using a crane
and bulk-bags (500-1000kg bags), but the latest method is bulk delivery
directly from large feed supply vessels using blowers or conveyors.
Userfriendly disinfection and cleaning
The Akvasmart Feed System concept is the only central feed system on the
market designed to allow for simple but thorough cleaning and disinfecting
if required. The silos can be steam cleaned and degreased
internally with the Feed Doser and Feed Blower running, blowing debris
and grey water out of the barge. This process also cleans dosers,
internal piping, selector valve and feed pipes.
Silo loading hatches are available in various
sizes. Photo showing dual size bulk loading
hatches for blower / conveyor filling.
All internal feed piping systems are FEED
CARE CERTIFIED stainless steel pipes with
optimal connections, bends and routing to
preserve the pellets.
Full control of the feeding process using
Akvasmart Feed System and cameras from
the feed barge control room.
The feed is loaded into the silos
using either bulk bags or bulk
blower/conveyor systems. Hatches
are available in various sizes.
All Wavemaster feed barges are designed
by professional naval architects to meet
all required regulations.
The air control system keep the pellet speed
in the gentle feed handling area, significantly
reducing the risk of blockage and breakage.
The unique Akvasmart CCS feed system
is perfectly integrated on a wide range
of Wavemaster feed barges.

Air Cooler Feed Doser Feed Selector Rotor Spreader
Rotor Spreader
flow chart:
The unique Rotor Spreader is designed to provide excellent
feed spread in cages. All our models have adjustable light weight
aluminium rotor pipes that allow for lower air speed for start-
up and rotation. This means less dust and breakage, power
consumption, back pressure, air temperature, noise and wear
and tear on the feed pipes. Our unique ventilated Zenon bearing
requires no regular cleaning and does not corrode. Due to its
light displacement and low point of gravity, the Rotor Spreader
is very stable in rough seas. All Akvasmart Rotor Spreaders
are easy to install and simple to maintain.
Rotor Spreaders
The Rotor Spreaders are used in all types
of cages. More than 7000 units are
delivered world wide.

Gentle feed handling
Up to two temperature sensors can
be directly connected to each feed
selector valve in the Akvasmart CCS
Feed system.
A rugged silo outlet gate, made from
galvanized steel, can easily be installed
in between the silo fange and feed
doser valve.
The outlet gate makes it possible to
remove the feed doser valve with
pellets in the silo.
Akvasmart Air Control System is
installed between the Air Cooler
and Feed Doser. Regulated air
speed ensures optimal pellet flow,
significantly reducing the risk of
blockage and breakage. If the
pellet/air speed is too low, the
risk for pellet blockage is
increased. If the pellet/air speed
is too high, dust and breakage
is increased. The system also
monitors and logs airspeed,
back pressure and temperature.

This has resulted in full integration with camera
systems, pellet- and environmental sensors.
Basically, the feed is delivered just the way you
and the fish wants it.
Biological approach
The only feed system software with biomass
regulated feeding regimes based on accurate
monitoring of fish appetite and environmental
Environmental monitoring and logging
Oxygen-, temperature- and current sensors
are fully integrated in AkvaControl. All sensor
data are displayed in real time and logged
for further analysis. This allows for optimal
feeding at all times.

each feed line or each fish group.
System capacity planning - Can the feed
system meet your planned daily feeding require-
ments? Prior to feeding, AkvaControl will compare
actual feed system capacities with required
feeding regime. Conflicts are visualized in order
for the operator to optimize daily feed system
Advanced meal planning This powerful
planning tool simplifies the setup of feeding
individual meals at group or unit level.
Multiple group feeding regimes - Groups
of units with identical criteria are treated equally.
This especially simplifies the setup and daily
management of cyclic feeding of many units.
Hopper control AkvaControl allows for
advanced operation of individual feed hoppers
as well as centralized feed systems. One system
software can therefore control all feeding
activities at the farm.
Integrated feeding camera control
Camera selection is done in the main screen
view. Manual or automatic camera selection
can be set up to monitor the feeding.
New Air Control System - Through real-
time measurement and control of the air flow,
air temperature and back pressure, AkvaControl
allows for optimizing pellet transportation.
The result is full Feed Care Certification where
feed dust and breakage are minimized. This also
reduces the risk of feed blockages.
Wizards - AkvaControl utilizes Wizards to
further simplify the setup and daily management
of the feed system.
Powerful reporting and analysis tools -
The powerful report generator provides a complete
overview in various time ranges and for various
data. This allows for advanced analysis to optimize
feeding regimes.
Gentle feed handling without
blocking feed pipes
Real time measurement of airflow, backpressure
and temperature ensures optimum feed handling.
Low airflow: Blocked pipe.
High airflow: High risk of dust and breakage.
The Air Control system is visualized in AkvaControl
through a simple graph per feeding line. The graph
displays real-time data for each unit being fed, and
automatically adjusts the blower speed to ensure
operation in the gentle feed handling area.

Why use a camera to monitor feeding?
Cage sizes have rapidly increased over the last 20 years, and as a result,
the visible area has decreased accordingly. In a cage of 160 diameters,
only 0,2% is visible from the surface. Therefore a submersible camera is
a requirement for monitoring and controlling feeding.

Environmental Sensors
Temperature Sensor
Optical Oxygen Sensor
Current Sensor
Environmental data is a critical feeding parameter...
To know the environmental data as temperature, oxygen and current speed
are factors that are important inputs when feeding fish. In the Akvasmart CCS
Feed System all these factors can be set to automatically control or adjust
the feeding. All environmental data will be logged and can be used in further
analyses either in AkvaControl or in Fishtalk.
Temperature - the foundation for all feeding regimes and growth models.
The Akvasmart Temperature Sensor is a reliable and robust sensor that can
be submerged at desired depths. Accurate real time readings are displayed
and logged by the AkvaControl Feed System software. AkvaControl can cal-
culate the expected daily feed amount based on feed tables with measured
temperature data. The Akvasmart Temperature Sensor is connected to the
Akvasmart CCS Feed System either by connection to the Akvasmart CCS
Selector Valve or via the CAP network.
Oxygen an important factor for growth and fish welfare.
The Akvasmart Oxygen Sensor is connected to the Akvasmart CCS Feed
System and can stop the feeding at low oxygen levels in water. The Oxygen
Sensor is an optical sensor that is robust and dependable with no need for
water flow. The only maintenance is periodic cleaning and there is no need
for re-calibration. The principle of operation is to illuminate the oxygen as
the reflected light is a measurement of dissolved oxygen in the water.
Environmental current knowledges prevents feed waste
The Akvasmart Current Sensor is connected to the Akvasmart CCS Feed
System and will prevent feed waste caused by tidal current that pushing
pellets out of the cage. The Akvasmart Current Sensor is located in strategic
positions at site and you set which cages that are connected to the sensor and
the maximum tidal current speed (in cm/sec) that allows feeding. When the
current speed exceeds the limit, the feeding temporarily stops in these cages
and resumes at slack current later, all other cages will be feed as scheduled.
The integration between Akva Control
and Fishtalk software provides the choice
of where and when to analyse the
environmental data.
Continuous data readings from the cages
are transmitted through the Akvasmart
wireless sensor network (CAP) or via an
EAP (Environmental Access Point).
Using the Temperature Sensor in combi-
nation with an Oxygen Sensor gives
a good picture of the environment.
The Current Sensor angles like a
pendulum when exposed to currents.
The angle is measured and converted
electronically to cm/sec.
The machined bronze housing
prevents marine fouling and makes
the sensor low maintenance.
The absolute oxygen concentration
is measured by illuminating a
membrane with modulated blue
light and by reading the phase
changes in the refected red light.
The signal is then linearised and
temperature compensated.

Environmental Access Point (EAP)
Full integration of environmental sensors
The EAP is directly linked to the Akvasmart CCS Feed System
via the AkvaControl software. Collecting and logging environ-
mental data from one or multiple depths provides better control
of the feeding and possibilities of analysis of environmental data
compared to feeding data. The EAP (Environmental Access Point)
is a robust sensor connection hub that allows connection of
multiple sensors in one location. The two-way communication
between EAP and the feed system is either wireless or hard wired.
The EAP is then an active part of the feed system, allowing
connection of sensors such as temperature, oxygen and current.

Land Based Aquaculture
- from extensive to intensive solutions...
AKVA group offers a wide range of land based aquaculture
technology, from single components to turn-key installations
worldwide. The complete range of quality products and software
provides maximum reliability and cost effectiveness.

Unlike the short history of cage farming aquaculture, land
based aquaculture goes back thousands of years with most of
the production being fresh water farms in China and Asia.
Land based aquaculture is today one the fastest growing food
industries in the world. Although most of the industry was
developed as extensive fsh farming in ponds with low technology
solutions, the main reason for todays growth is the increased
use of intensive solutions and the latest innovations in water
treatment technology. This makes it possible to maintain
excellent water quality combined with exceptional low water-
and energy consumption. Over the last 20 years, energy
consumption per kilo fsh produced has been reduced by more
than 80% while water recirculation has increased to more than
99%. In addition to freshwater, AKVA group also has unique
knowledge in saltwater recirculation systems, making it feasible
with proftable production of almost any species anywhere in
the world. Our main success criteria include scientifc competence,
practical experience and close cooperation with both customers
and research communities. This has enabled us to develop
innovative and cost-effective solutions for most land based
aquaculture projects.
AKVA group has more than 30 years of
aquaculture experience in designing and
supplying viable recirculation systems. For more information,
