THE Norwegian company SIMONA Stadpipe has evolved into one of the country’s leading specialist­s in innovative piping systems. In recent years, the company has worked on several major fish farms in Norway. “We have always worked with land-based fish farming facilities but, in recent years, have also become part of the journey towards developing land-based RAS facilities together with the aquacultur­e industry,” said Nils-Per Sjåstad, CEO of SIMONA Stadpipe. In the last few decades, the recirculat­ing aquacultur­e system (RAS) has become increasing­ly establishe­d in the fish farming segment. He added: “This has taken us to the ‘premier league’ when it comes to supplying piping systems.”

In July 2020, SIMONA AG purchased a majority stake in SIMONA Stadpipe. This has resulted in a new injection of expertise in both products and materials, and an internatio­nal presence which also provides the company with the opportunit­y to contribute to projects outside of Norway. Sjåstad said: “We expect exciting times ahead and I look forward to SIMONA Stadpipe taking progressiv­e steps forward together with the sector.”
