SES has proven capacity to cultivate seaweed in large scale and to provide a platform for the further development of cultivation technology. An industrial scale hatchery was built and successfully supplied seeds for 100-150 tons wet weight biomass.
Our Pilot Farm in Frøya is one of the largest seaweed cultivation farms to date in Europe. Further improvements to the harvest technologies, including mechanization, will help increase harvest volumes.
A monitoring program was designed to assess the growth and quality of the seaweed and environmental conditions through the harvest season, serving as a baseline for future improvements to farm productivity and cultivation methods.
We now enter a stage with greater focus on harvest technology, processing of the harvested biomass, and product development together with clients.
