Land Based Recirculation Aquaculture System (RAS).
The municipality of Sotenäs in Sweden and the Norwegian company Lighthouse Finance have agreed on an investment that will generate approximately 2,000 new jobs in the municipality. The objective is to create a new 75-hectare industrial area, where Europe's largest land-based fish farm will be built by Quality Salmon AB. The project has a total worth of SEK 17-20 billion.
Quality Salmon will implement CodelT eMRB® as a supplier and customer portal to gather and present data for the whole industry park. CodeIT eMRB® is one of two core Industry 4.0 services developed by the CodeIT Group.
CodeIT eMRB® will be linked to and have data exchange with ERP and MES systems installed in the different legal entries being part of the industry park. The goal is automatic synchronization of documents and data including traceability and fulfillment of legal authority's rules and regulations. Fulfillment of industrial standards like ISO, HACCP, FDA etc., shall also be part of the CodeIT eMRB® deliverables.
CodeIT eMRB® shall be a flexible toolbox for additional functionality for handling of data and documentation based on a functional specification from Quality Salmon. The CodeIT eMRB® solution will greatly reduce Quality Salmons time and resource use for managing legal documentation, records, site architecture and production information.
Quality Salmon will use their extensive experience together with the CodeIT Group to further enhance CodeIT eMRB® services for a global market in the field of largescale land-based seafood farming.
The Sotenäs site will have Europe's largest and most modern land-based fish farming facility with a production capacity of up to 100,000 tonnes of Atlantic salmon per year, for sale on the international market. A land-based cultivation entails having a limited environmental impact and a circular management, which is in line with Sotenäs municipality's long-term strategy. There will be minimal water and energy use without emissions to the sea through a closed system. The facility will use the latest and most advanced RAS (Recirculating Aquaculture System) solutions in the world for sustainable and smart fish production.
