20 years ago we launched a revolutionary project together with Pelagia Liavåg. The project marked the end of forklifts in cold rooms, and was the first of its kind delivered to the fish industry. The product we’re talking about is the fully automated air freezer known as OptiFreeze Blast. Which has been continuously innovated ever since.

This summer, the new stern trawler Nordbas, owned by Nordnes, was launched at sea. The vessel is 60 meters long and 10 meters wide - and houses several innovative and energy-efficient solutions. The hull itself, on the other hand, is from 1979.

Optimar skal fortsette å lede utviklingen og innovasjonstakten i bransjen, og gjennom det beholde eksisterende og skape nye markeder. Det er med andre ord aldri en kjedelig dag på jobb.

Sammen med rederiet Remøy Management og Fitjar Mekaniske Verft skal Optimar utvikle en 28 meter lang bløggebåt med design og teknologi som vil gjøre det mulig hente fisk daglig. Dette blir også noe så sjelden som en norskprodusert båt.

With an efficient receiving area tailored specifically to your trawler, you can prevent fish form discoloration and blood spots by gentle handling

The new 21-metre fishing vessel Josberg, which is equipped for both longline and gillnet fishing, is installed with Mustad autoline and Automatic Longline Hauling System (ALH). The owners' arguments for choosing this solution are quality and sustainability.

May this year, the crew was finally able to board the brand-new long-liner, Geir, with automated fillet and onboard freezing. We spoke with skipper Arild Holmeset about the process and a walk around the new long-liner.

Optimar is supporting fish farmers by spreading our knowledge and expertise with non-chemical fish treatments in Chile.

Many view digitalization as a complex and difficult task, and not least expensive. This is not necessarily the case. With a good digital foundation, you have the opportunity to build technology step by step.

We support the Ten Principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti – corruption and are committed to making the UN Global Compact and its principles parts of our strategy, culture and day – to day operations.
