Aquaculture constructions

SINTEF has developed applied and theoretical expertise in structures and systems for sea-based aquaculture. We are a world leader in technological research in the field of exposed aquaculture, with structural engineering and hydrodynamics as important subjects.

  • Properties of farming structures and their behavior in a marine environment with exposure to waves and currents
  • Flexible structures
  • Open cage systems
  • Closed aquaculture systems int the sea
  • Technology - biology interaction
  • Flow field and transport processes
  • Design of aquaculture structures
  • Physical modeling
  • Laboratory testing - full scale and model scale
  • Numerical modeling, simulation and analysis
  • Field measurements and methodology for full-scale testing
  • Environmental measurements in cage / tub / wellboat
  • Expert assessment of farming equipment in accordance with existing standards
