In mid-August in Trondheim, Norway, the AQUANOR exhibition took place - the world's largest exhibition for the aquaculture sector. Our local distributor, SATEMA, was also in attendance and exhibited two KOHLER SDMO gensets on its stand: an R44C3 and a PERFORM 4500 XL. SATEMA sells and installs medium-power industrial gensets, notably to the aquaculture industry. KOHLER SDMO gensets are especially used on fish feeding barges. These floating silos can transport up to 700 tonnes of feed for salmon. Supported by Jean-Christophe Landuré, our distributor was able to obtain numerous contacts with major players in the sector, which should lead to offshore or onshore projects in the coming weeks.
Especially dynamic in Scandinavia, the aquaculture industry is generating a lot of interest. First held in 1979, every 2 years AQUANOR brings together the major players and continues to attract high numbers. The proof: once again this year over 27,000 visitors from 71 countries flocked to the trade fair to find out about 600 exhibitors of 25 different nationalities.
