Enwa is very pleased to take part in the industry's endeavors, and in this context especially Nova Sea, showing great willingness and ability, to find methods that are better for fish health and better for the environment than many of the current methods. "We strongly believe that Nova Sea through their pilot project will succeed in achieving their objectives. Enwa see a growing demand in the industry for our expertise and are now seeing a potential for increase in deliveries to the aqua culture industry. Demand for fresh water, in areas where this is not readily available, will consequently lead to demand for desalination plants and correctly dimensioned pre-filtration where Enwa have great expertise." says Per Morten Lyngaas, Enwa Water Technology AS.
