Build Date: July, 2006
Contractor: AquaOptima, Norway
Project Description: 5 Salmon Rearing Tanks
Location: Trondheim, Norway
Time of Construction: 14 days
Size: 46 ft X 46 ft x 12 ft


AquaOptima needed to build five salmon rearing tanks in a remote Trondheim, Norway. Location made the logistics of shipping materials or steel forms an extra concern and expense.


Octaform provided a wall system solution that required very minimal training and construction time. The watertight wall panels are NSF potable water certified and CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) approved which helps prevent bacteria and helps maintain health of the fish.


The five octagonal salmon rearing tanks (almost ten thousand square feet of wall) were constructed in fourteen days. Because Octaform ships flat, potential logistic issues related to remote location were avoided.
