The idea for the doughnut-shaped fish farm came in 2015. Now SalMar and Bluegreen have signed a contract to take over the development permits and build the first Marine Donut. This will become the world's largest construction in thermoplastics.
Drammen District Heating has supplied businesses and private individuals with district heating since 1984. They are now building a new energy center on Brakerøya in Drammen. Drammen will thus have Norway's largest heat pump facility located in one place!
A scaled model of the closed-containment fish farm Marine Donut has arrived in Newfoundland to be modified and tested locally. The aim is to build a full-scale model in the province for ocean trials over the next growing season.
We have established a Bluegreen subsidiary in Canada, aiming to introduce the Marine Donut to salmon farmers in the Americas.
For some industries, such as cement production, capturing and storing CO₂ is the only possibility to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The Norwegian government has therefore provided NOK 16.8 billion in support to the LANGSKIP project, which will establish a full-scale facility for CO₂ handling that includes the capture, transport and storage of CO₂.
This summer we have recruited two new employees to work on engineering, project and administration in Bluegreen.
Plastic welding often involves heavy manual work. To save arms and shoulders, as well as ensure good documentation of welding quality, we are developing a self-propelled fusion machine.
Test report confirms. High Force Fusion meet the requirements and give the same good quality as INSTA 2072 fusion.
Achilles Utilities NCE is a supplier register and qualification system used by the energy industry. It manages supplier information and risk in the supply chain, thus securing efficient procurement in line with EU regulations.
BioSort's innovative concept iFarm is constantly being further developed. Using sensors, artificial intelligence and machine learning, iFarm will recognize salmon at the individual level, to give each fish the care and treatment they need.
Industriuka is the arena for Norwegian industry focused on green transition. This year, the event runs over four days and includes conferences, networking opportunities and a large trade fair. Bluegreen is of course present at the event.
We are growing and need to strengthen our team with more talent! We are looking for both skilled workers and engineers. Application deadline 24.4.
FiiZK has engaged Bluegreen to supply intake pipes for an innovative closed containment cage. Our experience, certified welders and control systems were crucial for us to win the job.
Sande Settefisk is expanding its facility to increase production by as much as 4 million post-smolts. We were engaged to deliver the process pipe package, and now three layers of ground pipes are finished.
- I had no idea what I was getting into! But both people and profession have delivered above expectations, says our new apprentice Caroline Ritch-Wedding satisfied.
In Bluegreen we are alway on the look out for talented people. So when Bjørn, Jan Egil and Kim Andre knocked on our door this autumn, we did not hesitate to say "Welcome to us!".
We are in strong growth, and start the year with new employees - and several new machines.
When Lødingen Fisk had challenges before Christmas, Bluegreen came to the rescue. A team of four traveled up to Vesterålen to change PE lining on four fish chambers.
Our first year of operation is coming to an end. Founder and CEO Nils-Johan Tufte can look back on an exciting year, which has substantially exceeded every expectation.
Throughout the autumn, we have had a team in place at idyllic Sandane by Nordfjord. Here we lay the foundation - literally - for the production of 4 million post-smolt annually.
In our workshop we produce various products in thermoplastic - whether it is for special design or tailoring. The advantage of choosing thermoplastic for your product is that it is maintenance-free, very durable and without risk of leakage. An added benefit is the recyclability of the material.
The trend has been notable for several years. Land-based smolt and post-smolt plants are becoming larger and more complex - and also deliver better on most parameters. This development calls for top performing suppliers, and we are proud to be part of the team of specialists when SalMar builds a new hatchery at Tjuin in Malm.
The Norwegian startup BioSort develops sensor-based solutions for optimizing fish resources. The goal is to replace manual inspection and random sampling by automated processes and monitoring derived from modern production processes. By handling fish at the individual level, you get both increased fish welfare and higher production yields - good for both the environment and the bottom line.
Closed fish farming is the way forward - it ensures high quality product in an environmentally friendly way. FishGlobe is built in 100% recyclable polyethylene, and this has been a project where we have utilized all our experience and expertise on thermoplastics. On October 6, FishGlobe was launched from our quay in Bamble, and is now located in Erfjord, Rogaland, where it will be filled with 250 tonnes of post-smolt.
StartBANK is a common register of suppliers to the construction industry. The purpose of StartBANK is to contribute to the use of serious suppliers in the industry, and ensure a fair competition on equal terms.
In August, we signed a multi-year strategic cooperation agreement with Sterner. We have previously delivered pipe packages to hatchery and and fish lab on Campus Ås, and we're now in the process of delivering a new exciting job.
To deliver great projects, we depend on skilled people. Plastic mechanic has low awareness, and there is unfortunately little knowledge about thermoplastics in the vocational schools. It is therefore absolutely crucial for us to offer apprenticeship to ensure access to competent workers.
National approval of Enterprises is a voluntary quality scheme that describes professional competence, routines for quality assurance and seriousness in the enterprise. The scheme is a seal of quality, which gives our customers assurance on our competence and quality.
The Aqua Nor trade fair is approaching! We look forward to physical meetings and mingling, and to showcasing our state-of-the-art solutions for sustainable AND cost-effective fish farming. Meet us at booth D-318.
Together with Uponor Infra, Waister and Signify, we have the pleasure of inviting you to a seminar during the Aqua Nor trade fair. The topic is "State-of-the-Art Solutions for Closed Fish Farming" and we will present four important disciplines for eco efficient fish farming.
In order to increase fish production and ensure good fish welfare, we must find solutions to the challenges of escape, lice and overconsumption of medicine and feed. The new, sustainable and cost-effective product Marine Donut, solves these problems, writes Fiskeri og Havbruk in an article about Bluegreen.
Ok, we're a bit of a nerd when it comes to plastic fusion. So the mood was high when we received a completely awesome new machine last week - actually the only one of its kind in Scandinavia! The McElroy top model: Tracstar 1200.
Like all industries, plastic fusion is also constantly evolving. Some are skeptical of change and new technology, while others embrace it. We at Bluegreen belong to the latter group. We want to put High Force Fusion on the agenda.
We know from experience that two things are crucial for the success of a start-up: the right partners and ongoing solid control of the economy. That is why we have hired Erik Ritch-Reinfjord from BDO as our CFO. We have a fantastic first quarter behind us, and are poised to turn over tens of millions in the start-up year. In this article from Finansavisen, Erik and Nils-Johan talk about the collaboration.
Even though we are newly established, we still have considerable experience from the industry. In a short time, we have recruited a team with some of the world's leaders in engineering, welding and production of large structures and infrastructure in thermoplastic. This was crucial when we won the contract for the construction of a new FishGLOBE in January 2021.
