Among other projects, AKVA group North America has been busy getting ready for the 2015 Marine Harvest Polarcirkel cage project delivery. This year’s plan is to build 28 pcs. 120m circumference cages making it the largest project to date in North America for Polarcirkel! These are a mixture of 450mm and 500mm float pipe cages. All cages are being built in Port Hardy, British Columbia, on Vancouver Island in Canada. We have many resources working hard to ensure success on this project which is in full production swing, with a goal to have all cages delivered during the summer and fall of 2015.
The project has been a team effort with resources from Norway, Scotland, Chile and Canada. All contributing to the design in order to meet the requirements of Marine Harvest Canada. There has also been great collaboration with the customer and we look forward to the continuing relationship and further installations of the quality Polarcirkel Cages in North America.
