Oxygen: Portuguese technology expands to Chilean salmon farming industry

Sysadvance, Portuguese company specialized in systems for the purification and separation of technical gases, including oxygen, expanded its products and services for the aquaculture industry after company executives traveled to Norway in 2017 to participate in AquaNor international fair.

During the event, Sysadvance closed a deal with Vard, an aquaculture equipment firm, to sell their in situ oxygen generation systems.

Six of the systems are now installed in the south of Chile with more on the way.

The technology is cost efficient with excellent productivity results and also supports animal welfare by making oxygen more available in the farming area. It is equipped -among other things- with temperature sensors, possibility of remote monitoring, warning messages by SMS or email and alarms.

In a recent interview with AQUA, Pedro Pinto, the Sysadvance representative, and Jorge Flores, Sales Manager of Vard Chile, expressed their interest in keep expanding in Chile given the salmon industry’s positive outlook.
