Murre Technologies has been supplying the EasyFarm system with which mussel seed cultivation is possible, for almost 20 years. Seaweed cultivation and processing is their next development. Murre Technologies is building a harvester that harvests the seaweed from the cultivation nets in the sea. Sowing seaweed is also part of the EasyFarm concept, which is why they supply the complete system for harvesting and sowing the seaweed. We have also developed a seaweed bubble washer to sort the sand and undersized waste such as crustaceans from the product during the washing process. The system is equipped with separation rollers for this, the washing water is continuously filtered through a separator drum. To reduce the iodine content, we use a blanching/cooling system.
In short, we are your partner in seaweed harvesting and processing!
Seaweed Solutions AS is one of Europe’s seaweed pioneers and was the first company in Norway to start farming seaweed. Since 2009, the company has invested significantly in R&D across the seaweed value chain including both biology, marine technology and processing. The company operates a flagship farm at Frøya, Norway and offers a scalable supply of high quality seaweed in bulk (B2B) to food, feed and other markets as well as supplying seeds to other farmers. With a vision to enable large scale seaweed farming in Europe, the company continues to take an active part in innovation activities through its own R&D and through partnerships.
