Danish Suppliers well represented at Aqua Nor 2019.

Twenty-nine Danish suppliers in the global fishing, aquaculture and seafood processing industries will travel to Trondheim Spektrum, Norway for this years Aqua Nor conference. The conglomerate of Danish suppliers represents Fish Tech, Danish Export Association, the largest group of Danish suppliers in the fishing equipment sector. Head of Fish Tech Martin Winkel expects this year’s Aqua Nor conference to be especially remarkable because of shifting market forces that are demanding more sustainable products. Accordingly, [this shift] offers great potential for Danish suppliers that hold a position as front-runners in developing new technology with a strong focus on high quality solutions, cost-efficiency and sustainability,” Martin said. 

 

Specifically, Mr Winkelbelieves there will be high interest in long lasting products and solutions at the conference. For Lykkegaard A/S, a Danish supplier of pump technology, this is excellent news. Lykkegaard recently developed the world’s first high-performing corrosions-resistant pump for aggressive saltwater that offers fish-farmers a long-term solution for pumping water. “Due to challenging conditions in aggressive water with high temperatures and salinity, fish-farmers risk that pumps corrode very quickly. This causes unnecessary downtime and fish death because the water is not being oxidized and cleaned. With our new pump made of the extremely durable material HDPE, fish farmers can get a guaranteed 100 percent corrosion-resistant solution and avoid fish death,” Karsten Lykkegaard, Managing Director of Lykkegaard A/S explained. Karsten fully agrees the industry has intensified its focus on the environment and he expects more products which can be repaired, rather than replaced to develop in the coming years. The Aquoa Nor Conferences will take place between August 20-23 and will include numerous seminars, mini-conferences, lectures, debates and presentations on the latest developments in aquaculture.
