Alfa Laval adds to aquaculture portfolio

Alfa Laval has acquired LiftUP, a Norwegian provider of waste extraction methods for fish farms.
Located outside Bergen on the west coast of Norway, LiftUP manufactures, sells and installs pumps and cleansing gear for the elimination of lifeless fish, waste and sludge from open fish cages. The compressed waste is stored in tanks that are shipped to a biogas facility, where it is converted to renewable energy and a high-grade fertilizer.
digital pressure gauge enhances Alfa Laval Framo’s AquaStream pumping system which brings up fresh low temperature water with high oxygen levels (from around 25m depth) and creates an ideal sea current, offering circumstances similar to deep fjords.
LiftUP, which had revenues of NOK75 million in 2020, will now be a part of Alfa Laval’s Pumping Systems enterprise unit throughout the Marine Division.
“This acquisition is a priceless addition to our sustainable aquaculture portfolio, expanding our offering of fish farming solutions that will increase both the productivity and economic attractiveness of fish farming options while lowering its impression on the setting,” mentioned Sameer Kalra, president of Alfa Laval’s Marine Division.
