SINTEF ACE is a full-scale laboratory facility designed to develop and test new aquaculture technologies. Facility users are researchers and others conducting practical experiments and tests both under optimally controlled and realistic conditions.

The research activity on aquaculture technology takes place on different salmon and seaweed sites, mainly in Mid-Norway. We strive to carry out the experiments at one of SINTEF Ocean's aquaculture licenses (STR-0023, STH-0902 and STF-0903). Main sites are located on Hitra/Frøya where we also have boat and other equipment.

The full-scale laboratory, SINTEF ACE, is open for research and equipment testing to all parties. Research and experiment focus is mainly on technology for operation activities as well as constructions and environment surveillance. This is based on a multidisciplinary competence within biology-technology-interaction. Here work e.g. biologists with fouling experiments alongside cyberneticists with autonomous vehicles.
