OptiBlast Freezing 

OptiFreeze Blast is capable of freezing up to 1000 tons per day of any product, and is our largest freezing system in size and capacity. Energy savings are significant because no large doors are repeatedly opened and closed. Freezing racks remain inside the refrigerated area throughout the process, so no energy is wasted warming up or cooling down the steel frames.

Stun and bleed solutions

Fish processing needs to be done in the most efficient and humane way possible. The Stun & Bleed system is taking care of the fish from the moment of entering alive and all the way until a humane killing is completed. The system is designed to increase the welfare of the animal, to allow for full automation, easy cleaning and to give access for easy surveillance of the process. Several options for handling different species and maximizing the profit can be provided.

Optimar OptiTube 

With Optimar Optitube the fish is kept cold and in motion with water while it is bled out. We consider this to be the absolute best way to bleed out the fish. The continuous motion and circulation is controlled to create different zones within the tube, providing first in first out transportation, simultaneous as it helps the fish bleed out more efficiently and more gently. Our OptiTube can be used on land and at sea.

Some examples are Stun and Bleed factories, stand-alone Ensilage factories, and Slaughter lines with manual gutting. Our container solutions have been used on decks of large trawlers, well boats, slaughter vessels, on land with land-based farming, and on trucks to reach farming sites in emergencies.

Optilice and Optiflush lice treatment

Remove sea lice without using chemicals or medicals is the best way to maintain animal welfare and sustainable fish farming. 


Optimar Optilicer 

Optimar Optilice is a thermic, non-medical, and sustainable treatment for removing sea lice in Salmon, Trout and Lumpfish. This gentle method requires no use of chemicals or medicals and is documented to remove 98% of all sea lice. 

The fish is pumped from the cage for the Optilice -treatment. The fish is counted, and then bathed in temperature-controlled water (-1C – 36 °C seawater or fresh water) in a controlled and time-adjustable time treatment. The underwater circulation of 1000 ltr/sec per line secures a continuous supply of fresh seawater (10 m3/hour per line).

Optiflush treatment unit 

The provision of low-pressure waterjets surrounding the complete circumference of the fish body represents a gentle impact on the fish and its welfare of it. Combined with other thermal treatment systems, it reduces the temperature needed for efficient de-licing with approximately 2° C, and consequently, it also increases the efficiency of lice removal if leaving the water temperature unchanged.
