Benchmark’s SalmoBreed Salten

Benchmark’s SalmoBreed Salten site in Norway has been recognised for its energy efficiency by Kystmiljø.

The site, officially opened in May 2019, has the capacity to produce 150m salmon eggs per year and was designed with sustainability credentials at its core.
212,235kWh. –  Energy contribution corresponding to energy consumption for 10 households

Renewable energy and biogas production

The purpose-built site minimises its environmental footprint by using 94% renewable energy as well as sending fish and sludge waste for biodigestion. In 2019 biodigestion of waste generated 212,235kWh thereby saving the equivalent consumption of over 17t of fossil fuels.

Salten was built to boost our salmon egg production capacity. The site is the most advanced land-based salmon egg production facility in the world, and our focus here is on fish health, welfare, quality and environmental efficiency.
