Alfa Laval provides to aquaculture portfolio

Alfa Laval has acquired LiftUP, a Norwegian supplier of waste extraction systems for fish farms.
Located outdoors Bergen on the west coast of Norway, LiftUP manufactures, sells and installs pumps and cleansing equipment for the removal of lifeless fish, waste and sludge from open fish cages. diaphragm seal compressed waste is stored in tanks that are shipped to a biogas facility, where it’s transformed to renewable power and a high-grade fertilizer.
The LiftUP system enhances Alfa Laval Framo’s AquaStream pumping system which brings up recent low temperature water with high oxygen levels (from round 25m depth) and creates an ideal sea current, providing circumstances much like deep fjords.
LiftUP, which had revenues of NOK75 million in 2020, will now be part of Alfa Laval’s Pumping Systems business unit within the Marine Division.
“This acquisition is a priceless addition to our sustainable aquaculture portfolio, expanding our providing of fish farming options that increases each the productivity and financial attractiveness of fish farming solutions while reducing its influence on the setting,” stated Sameer Kalra, president of Alfa Laval’s Marine Division.
