Offshore Wind Synergies

Aker Solutions is in a key position to tackle the challenges and possibilities that may arise when aquaculture and renewable energy combine.

Wind turbines need distance between them to limit wake effects, and fish farming units require distance for biosecurity and water quality. We provide services to utilize sea space for both offshore wind farms and fish farming with shared logistics and infrastructure to enhance efficiency and reduce operating costs for both fish farmers and wind operators. Enabling shared use of area reduces the amount of ocean space restricted for others.

Aker Solutions Ocean Cage

The Aker Solutions Ocean Cage is a semisubmersible aquaculture system designed to withstand harsh offshore environments. The design ensures fish are protected against heavy waves and sea lice when submerged for long periods of time.

The cage is equipped with a double net barrier system to prevent fish from escaping. The unmanned, self-contained concept includes feed barge functionalities and remote monitoring and control. We currently offer two open cage designs, 3,000 metric tons and 6,000 metric tons biomass.
