AKVA group polarcirkel

When nature rebels, you need equipment you can trust. Polarcirkel 500R pen is engineered not only to withstand severe weather conditions, but also to provide the farmer with the most practical and safe tool possible.

The pen has a highly robust and stable construction: where extreme forces from the moorings are absorbed in strong-point bulkhead-collars that are integrated in the outer floating pipes (permitted forces in the bridle over 40 tonnes in the accident state).

Its superior structural strength has made AKVA Polarcirkel a preferred choice for fish farmers all over the world. Extensive use of HDPE in our brackets eliminates corrosion, minimizes expensive and difficult maintenance and substantially increases pen lifespan. 

  • Made from non-corrosive high-quality Polyethylene (HDPE100)
  • The outer floating pipe has strong mirror-welded mooring collars with sectioned waterproof chambers (the inner floating pipe is also sectioned in waterproof chambers) 
  • The pen is styrofoam-free, something that eliminates the risk of pollution, which gives a smaller environmental footprint, at the same time as requirements for residual buoyancy in accordance with NS9415 are met
  • Our new solution with chamber division (without Styrofoam) eliminates the danger that the pen sinks
  • Fortified stanchions (180mm) and railing pipes (160mm) enhance the pen’s loading capacity. Reinforced stanchions and railing pipes the pen to "carry" more accessories (cleaning fish shed, power cabinet, camera/winch, etc.) than most competing solutions
  • Built-in bird net pole sockets
  • New integrated net connection system
  • Centre distance between inner and outer floating pipes 1100mm. Width of walkways 1205mm
  • Strong bollards for mooring boats to the pen
  • Recessed box for sinker tube suspension
  • Several smart add-on options, including outer railing 
  • Fastening for mooring with normal strap fastening around the floating pipes (500R)

A well proven consept

The new and watertight bulkhead collars take more mooring loads and eliminates the need for internal styrofoam. This, together with enforced stanchions and railing pipes, a tighter fit between the brackets and main floating pipes, and smart details such as built-in bird net pole sockets, make AKVA Polarcirkel 500R one of our most powerful, safe and environmentally friendly pen models.

  • Dimensioned for all mooring loads
  • No styrofoam
  • Delivered in 100 - 240 m circumference

Experience is a crucial success factor in the fish farming business. AKVA group invented the first plastic pen in 1974 and has since supplied thousands of pens all over the world. All AKVA Polarcirkel pen designs are carried out by our professional R&D department. 
Independent consultants in marine engineering, together with our own engineers and specialists, have performed advanced static and dynamic analysis to ensure all designs meet or exceed expected real life loads as well as applicable industry standards.

Everything we produce has undergone material and function tests, approved by our certification agency.
