Investment in highly efficient CO2 aerators is highly profitable
We have carried out an assessment of the economic consequences of investing in CO2 aerators with high cleaning effect compared to aerators with lower cleaning effect.
The assessment shows that in a 350 m3 tank, an increase in the cleaning effect from 50 – 60% up to 75 – 80% may provide a potential growth in turnover of about 1 million NOK per year provided certain assumptions. This assumes that the technology provides stable, high effect.
Investment in efficient and stable aerator technology is the fastest way to increase the production capacity in a smolt facility. Even if the assessment in this memo mentions salmon particularly, the assessment will also be valid for salmonides in general.
