Aquaculture

The Wieland Group, global leader for copper solutions, and Lerow AS have formed the new "BlueSea Technology AS" Joint Venture for solutions in the field of aquaculture. Based on the know-how of both companies - specialists in copper and aquaculture - mesh and cages in Wieland SE1 are brought on the market. This form of aquaculture allows fish farming with less antibiotics and more safety since brass nets are less susceptible to damage and scaling.

Wieland BlueSea ® is a special brass with excellent corrosion resistance for use in brackish water and sea water. The alloy exhibits high mechanical strength and is suitable for marine aquaculture applications. Due to the natural properties of copper, BlueSea products stay environmentally clean, thus reducing maintenance as well as cleaning throughout their entire life cycle. The copper-base alloy BlueSea products are 100% recyclable at the end of their life cycle.

    BlueSea Mesh with a wire diameter of 2,75 mm and 20 mm mesh size of after weaving and before it has been used in sea water.

    The very same mesh type after more than two years in the sea. The mesh was not deformed and kept the identical mesh size.

    The wire diameter was reduced only by some 2-3% (average value) after the complete period.
    All mechanical values stay similar than before.
