Pure Salmon Technology announced the continuation of its collaboration with Helgeland Smolt for their upcoming smolt facility in Kilvika, Meløy, Norway.

“After successful partnerships in previous projects, it is very gratifying that Helgeland Smolt has once again chosen us as their collaborative partner. The fact that we provide both process equipment and automation, ensuring the interface between equipment and control, has been a crucial factor. Helgeland Smolt's choice reflects their trust in our expertise and technology,” said Jack Tucker, sales manager of Pure Salmon Technology.

The construction of the smolt facility is set to commence within weeks, with the first smolt expected to be delivered in spring 2026. Pure Salmon Technology is delivering comprehensive electro and automation solutions, process equipment, and support systems for the project.

Arne Gransjøen, CEO of Helgeland Smolt, said “we chose Pure Salmon Technology based on their expertise in RAS, particularly in automation. We have collaborated with Pure Salmon Technology in previous projects and have a very good working relationship with them.”

“We greatly appreciate the trust Helgeland Smolt has shown in choosing us as the supplier for their upcoming facility. I would like to extend a special thanks to everyone involved from Helgeland Smolt, especially to Tor-Arne Gransøen and Trond Mellerud, for their highly positive and constructive collaboration,” said Niels Brynnum, CCO at Pure Salmon Technology.

NJORD, Pure Salmon Technology's digital platform, provides comprehensive control and monitoring of the facility for Helgeland Smolt. This will contribute to optimizing operations, ensuring precise data collection and control, and strengthening the focus on fish welfare. It includes several smart functionalities that simplify the daily tasks for operators and personnel.

After previous deliveries of complete RAS facilities at Helgeland Smolt Reppen and Helgeland Smolt Sundsfjord, Pure Salmon Technology has now implemented complete SCADA for both these facilities, and it will also be part of their Kilvik facility.

The Sandefjord-based company, Pure Salmon Technology, has now secured its second project over a short period, following the recent announcement of Grieg Seafoods' project at Adamselv.

“After a period where the new resource tax paused Norwegian projects, Pure Salmon Technology used the time to finalize a post-smolt design and an exciting automation package for the industry. Therefore, we are currently experiencing significant interest and demand for our solutions, and we look positively toward the future,” said Kent Kongsdal Rasmussen, CEO of Pure Salmon Technology.
