ScaleAQ is a Norwegian group of companies engaged in providing a wide range of products and services within the aquaculture industry. Founded in 1980 and based in Trondheim, Norway, ScaleAQ incorporates three separate business entities. They are: Steinsvik Group AS (a supplier of products and solutions for aquaculture, maritime, and oil and gas industries), Aqualine AS (a fishing equipment supplier), and AquaOptima AS (producer of recirculation aquaculture systems (RAS) and various water treatment solutions).
Steinsvik Group, Aqualine, and AquaOptima have completed the merger to form ScaleAQ in 2019. Combined, these three companies have a local presence in 11 countries and employ more than 900 people, providing a broad portfolio of products to global customers, as well as consulting and engineering services. ScaleAQ also has a subsidiary in Australia that provides a range of solutions for the salmon, barramundi and prawn farming industries in the Pacific region, with products including remote feeding technology and software, underwater cameras, feed systems, nets, cages and moorings.
ScaleAQ has an extensive portfolio of products divided into four broad categories: seabased solutions and products (designed for pen-based aquaculture), land-based equipment, services, and software.
ScaleAQ’s seabased line of products includes a large number of equipment for pen-based aquaculture, as well as optimization and upgrade services on existing infrastructure. Seabased equipment by the company includes feeding bagres, camera systems, pens and pen accessories, nets, lights, sensor systems, mort handling, lice control and other offerings.
Land-based product portfolio of the company is centered around so-called closed aquaculture systems (CAS). CAS are closed sea facility systems that typically include monitoring technology, digitization, software, feeding systems, dead fish handling, sustainability, and a number of other components.
ScaleAQ also provides custom services for the aquaculture industry businesses, employing service technicians with their own service vehicles or boats to access existing facilities.
