Pure Salmon develops processing design in partnership with Wiley

Pure Salmon is a sustainable land-based salmon producer with an operating facility in Poland capable of producing in excess of 400T of high-quality salmon per annum.

With grand plans, Pure Salmon is planning to produce 260,000T of high-quality salmon per annum with new facilities planned for Japan, France, China, Brunei, Lesotho and the USA., Each new location will have annual production or 10,000 or 20,000T per annum and will comprise vertically integrated production and processing facilities.

Supported by Wiley, Pure Salmon has developed a general process building concept specific to their ‘Soul of Japan’ site, based on an annual capacity of 10,000T per annum.

Wiley was engaged to conduct a completed concept, realise and define design for the salmon processing facility. This provided a design and construct set of documentation for use by local Japanese construction companies to complete the consulting design prior to construction.

“Congratulations to Pure Salmon who have recently raised $358USD to achieve their expansion plans. We are very excited to be working alongside their team to bring these plans to reality. We have confidence in their vision and the potential for land-based aquaculture in the future, especially as countries look to secure their domestic food supply in the current environment,” said Logan Ashmole, Wiley senior project manager.

“Wiley worked with multiple parties throughout the development of the design including Smart Aqua, Marel, Baader, Aquatic, and Pure Salmon. These stakeholders maintained their involvement throughout the realise and define design process and were critical to a successful project.”

Wiley’s completed project delivered consulting advice for Pure Salmon to be able to execute its facility in Japan and provide insights to translate the works for future facilities around the world. The design will form a base for the other facilities in subsequent design phases.

This general concept facility was designed in line with Pure Salmon’s objectives which are aimed at taking pressure off the world’s oceans by producing salmon in regions close to the customer and thus reducing carbon emissions. The clean technologies used will employ systems that have no negative impacts on marine ecosystems. The growing environment will be free of antibiotics, pesticides and pollutants providing the ideal environment for healthier fish and great salmon for Pure Salmon’s customers
