Enwa to deliver fresh water plant for treatment of salmon

Enwa to deliver freshwater plant for well boat with capacity of producing 6 000 ton water per day. 

DESS Aquaculture Shipping AS (DAS) has recently contracted two new large well boats from Artic Group (picture of the vessel) with a capacity for fresh water production of 6000 m3 water per. Today (6 million liters). The boats are 76 meters long and have a width of 15 meters.

Fresh water treatment – the most efficient treatment

Fresh water treatment is emerging as the most effective, gentle and sustainable method of removing lice from salmon. Production of large amounts of fresh water at a low cost coupled with efficient installation in compact and specialized vessels require considerable knowledge and experience.

The cooperation between Artic Group, SEACON and Enwa will provide a vessel with capacities upon delivery that will set a new standard in the industry, says project and development manager in DESS Aquacultur shipping AS, Henrik A. Larsen.

Enwa delivers the fresh water plant

According to the ship owner, Mr Ove Vilnes, Enwa demonstrated a level of knowledge and insight that was superior to the competitors and ended as the preferred supplier. The RO plants that are embedded in the bow (picture) were designed and the RO will be assembled at Enwa’s production facilities in Gothenburg. Bjørn Dørum in Enwa states that the plants that are already under the production are scheduled for delivery before summer 2017. The first boat is ready Q1 2018. The boat number 2 by the summer 2018.

Competence in many areas

Desalination of such large quantities of seawater requires knowledge in many areas whereas the desalination process probably is the easiest. Knowledge of raw water conditions, content in the ocean, seasonal and locality changes are essential in order to be able to dimension as reliable and economically efficient plants as possible. Our technological development is partly based on research results together with Norwegian and international oceanographic environments.
