Reference report as PDF
The Åland Islands-based company Fifax Ab is currently building one of the largest fish farms in the Nordic countries. The aboveground facility is located in Eckerö, Åland, about 1.8 kilometres from the sea. Operating at full capacity, it will produce more than 3,200 tonnes of rainbow trout for the Finnish and Scandinavian markets annually. The facility piping contract was simplified and implemented at a lower cost by replacing the pressure pipes specified in the original plan with 1,800mm Weholite pipes.
