We focus on quality. An important area is optimization and customizing net design. Development and testing has resulted in a net with characteristics such as reduced abrasion, giving less risk of escapes.

R&D - Research and Development

We are continuously engaged in research and development activities, emphasizing improvement and innovation.

We intend to reduce the risk of escapes, reduce the risk of disease, and optimize handling and operation.

Our solutions must be safe on behalf of the customer, and we invest considerable resources on verification of new solutions, often in cooperation with the customer, research institutions and other cooperating partners.

In addition, we maintain emphasis on simplifying operations. We are working on continuous product development within a number of areas, as well as testing of various designs in cooperation with our customers. 

​“Quality based on experience and product development”.

Testing of materials

Our laboratory is equipped with advanced technological equipment for verifying the characteristics of ropes and other materials. All components are carefully tested and documented before being implemented in any of our products.

R&D Marine Engineering

Our employees have a varied background with both theoretical engineering education and practical experience from the aquaculture industry.
This gives us insight and a better understanding of the challenges facing the industry, and we always work hard to find the best solutions when we design and analyze floating fish farms. The department's main tasks include analysis and certification of net bags and mooring. Marine Engineering participates in sales and development projects with its broad competence and experience in the search to find the best total solution for the customer's challenges. R&D Marine Engineering is one of five departments in Marine Infrastructure, each with its own product area, which aims to strengthen AKVA group's position as a total supplier.
  • Net and mooring analyzes through simulations in Aquasim as a basis for product certification and product development
  • Drawing, 3D modeling and FEM analysis using AutoCAD and SolidWorks
  • Special projects such as development of sales and dimensioning calculations for moorings and nets for safe and efficient operation
  • Preparation of innovative and competitive solutions for complete cage systems in collaboration with other departments
  • Analysis and design of development licenses

Testing of models

Egersund Net invests major resources in product development and testing of models in cooperation with our customers.
A test tank belonging to SINTEF Fisheries and Aquaculture is often used in order to improve our knowledge about various designs. The test tank allows simulation of various currents and wave conditions.
