AquaLink is used to transfer process data, live CCTV images, weather data such as wind, local surface and sea current at multiple depths, etc., between fish farm and service vessels.

By providing AquaLink, KONGSBERG introduces an innovative product for the aquaculture industry, which will increase safety for personnel and equipment achieving reduced risk of damage to vessel and fish farm.

AquaLink is a product that will increase the operational weather window, reduce preparation time for vessel approach to the aquaculture site, and ensure maximum loading / offloading rates.

AquaLink is suited for both refit and newbuilding projects. Typical applications are Live Fish Carriers, Forage Carriers and Service Vessels in addition to vessels servicing exposed fish farms.

KONGSBERG AquaLink transfers key process data between the live fish carrier and fish farm through the Maritime Broadband Radio (MBR) link.

Live CCTV streaming gives the crew real time visual information of status on the fish farm. In addition, water quality parameters are transmitted for evaluation and appropriate actions.

With AquaLink, the Live Fish Carrier receives valuable weather data to the ship's dynamic positioning and manoeuvring system.

AquaLink transfers weather data such as wind, local surface and sea current at multiple depths via KONGSBERG's unique Maritime Broadband Radio.

Forage carrier

KONGSBERG's AquaLink transfers key process data between forage carrier and fish farm through the Maritime Broadband Radio link.

The offloading process is monitored and controlled from a dedicated operator station onboard the forage carrier, which is interfaced with the fish farm silo system. This enables maximum offloading rate without the risk of spillage or unexpected stops.

AquaLink also transfers weather data, such as wind, local surface current and sea current for multiple water depths, giving valuable data to the forage carrier's dynamic positioning and manoeuvring system. With AquaLink, the forage carrier is prepared for intensive offloading operations in challenging weather conditions.
