Seafoods Finest

Situated on the island Austevoll Norway, Austevoll Fiskeindustri AS is a modern processing plant for salmon and pelagic products. The combination of competencies within more species sends Austevoll Fiskeindustri with it’s partners  to the top as one of the largest seafood companies in Norway.

With salmon production year round and pelagic season 9 months of the year, their products are exported worldwide every day. With a freezer storage of over 12000mt and a deep-water pier, Austevoll Fiskerindustri offers port-to-port logistics for its customers.

Austevoll Fiskeindustri AS is always seeking to improve processing methods and is considered an innovative and dynamic operation continuously on the move. Pescatech has a very good relationship to Austevoll Fiskeindustri and upholds a position as an external/internal technical department. This means to be involved in larger projects as well as smaller technological developments.

The filleting department of the salmon factory was recently rebuilt to highest possible standard within the industry, where Pescatech together with Austevoll Fiskeindustri were heavily involved in the design, equipment evaluation and coordination of vendors.

Ivar Helge Melingen, Managing Director in Austevoll Fiskeindustri says:

Pescatech brings unique design skills to our team in addition to many other services we find valuable. Today, we see them more as a part of the Austevoll family and call upon them, whenever we need their assistance. We have in Pescatech a trustworthy partner, which we know will exclusively work on our behalf.

Chris Bjerregaard of Pescatech continues:

It’s fantastic for us to be considered almost part of the customers organization, where they simply call and ask to help as if we were an internal department of Austevoll Fiskeindustri.
