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. 

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.

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.
