Nippon Gases Sverige and Quality Salmon Sotenäs have signed a letter of intent for the delivery of industrial gases to the salmon industry’s most modern and sustainable circular industrial park.

Announcing the signing recently, the duo said such partnership signifies the next important step in planning and building the largest circular and sustainable industrial park for land-based fish farming in Europe.

An investment of SEK 17-20bn ($2bn-$2.4bn) has been put into the circular industrial park. The park hopes to achieve future production of 100,000 tonnes of salmon per year - Nippon Gases’ industrial gases will now play a big part in this.

Commenting on the new agreement, Robert Palffy, Managing Director of Nippon Gases in Sweden, said, “We look forward to develop and build a unique circular industrial park for salmon production together with Quality Salmon and the other stakeholders.”

“Nippon Gases has extensive knowledge on how to efficiently dissolve oxygen in water and deliveries of gases to similar projects. With our expertise in the area, we can contribute to the success of the project. In addition to oxygen, we will also offer industrial gases to other parts of the industrial park’s processes.”

“Sustainability and circular economy are important focus areas for us as a company and we want to be involved in the process of transitioning to a more environmentally and climate friendly production. We are actively searching for projects where our gas solutions can help both our customers and the society to reduce humanity’s footprint.”
