Sealed significant onshore contract in Chile

desember 15, 2021

Optimar recently signed a significant contract with Orizon in Chile. Orizon is a leading producer of sustainable seafood, and now they have ordered a factory with a high degree of automation from Optimar.



– It’s great to land such a momentous contract right before entering a new year, says sales manager at Optimar, Mathias Sandnes.

The team on Valderøya outside Ålesund is already in the process of pre-planning. It is an extensive factory they’re going to deliver. It includes everything from receiving and sorting fish based on size - to the packaging line. In addition, the process leading to pre-packaged fish in the freezer is more or less fully automated. Due to this, all details has to be accurate before the factory is built.
– Optimar is a system integrator and we have to make sure that our deliveries work well with the existing equipment from other suppliers. Our team collaborates closely with a technically competent team at Orizon to ensure seamless solutions, Sandnes explains.

Several large pelagic contracts in sight

– The pandemic has forced us to work with sales in a completely new way. The entire sales process has taken place across Teams and it is exciting to discover that it is possible to handle such a large contract with digital tools only, Sandnes says.


The pelagic market is developing rapidly and the contract with Orizon is only the first of several contracts for Optimar in Chile.

– We are proud to reveal that we recently secured three other contracts in the same market in Chile, says the Sales Manager.
