Why GRP is the future of Aquaculture

GRP, also called Composite, is short for Glassfibre Reinforced Polyester and is a fairly new material. Compared to concrete and steel, this material will lower your operational and development costs dramatically. Here are a few good reasons why you should start thinking about switching to Composite for your next development project:

GRP is a very lightweight material – actually it is approximately 25% of the weight of steel – resulting in huge advantages for construction work. It is also an exceptionally strong material. This, combined with the low weight, gives a material that is much easier and more flexible to handle.

But what does this mean for you?

Its weight-to-strength ratio provides lower construction and development costs and will shorten the time frame of the development phase of your land-based fish farming facilities. This means you will be able to get started with your main operations even faster.

What about the future?

Because it is non-corrosive and virtually maintenance-free, the material itself will last you a longer time. You can expect our Composite fish tanks and walkway bridges to last a minimum of 50 years, probably even longer.

As an EPCI supplier, we at HighComp pride ourselves with our focus on quality, precision, knowledge and safety. We have more than 30 years of experience with the oil and gas industry, as well as extensive knowledge regarding the challenging aspects of subsea operations. Our experiences with engineering and HSEQ from the offshore industry is the reason we know exactly what makes a long lasting, high quality product for our customers in their aquaculture operations.

Our experience and our knowledge lets us develop better, smarter and more environmentally-friendly solutions. From fish tanks to walkway-bridges, we do all of the pre-fabrication in-house, and when it is time for the product to be delivered it is ready for installation on-site.

All in all, reducing your initial investment and reducing the future operational costs of your projects.
