Sale Of Bennex Aqua Division

The Aquaculture division of Bennex has been sold to two Norwegian companies and forms the first part of a new aquaculture technology group to be branded Mohn Aqua.

The company will establish operations in all major salmon farming markets. From the existing base in Forres, Scotland, Mohn Aqua manufactures underwater camera, control systems and water quality monitoring technology for marine cage farms. The company also continues to work in partnership with Airmar Technology (seal and sea lion deterrent systems) globally and with VAKI (counting, grading and biomass estimation systems) in the UK and Ireland. The Aquaculture division of Bennex has been acquired by two Bergen, Norway based companies – ROV manufacturer Argus Remote Systems AS and offshore services company Mohn Drilling AS.

Mohn Aqua will continue to provide support for all Bennex Aquaculture products sold over the last few years and will honour any warranties, contracts or support agreements that are in place.

Chris Hyde, Managing Director said “We are very pleased that the acquisition of Bennex Aquaculture has been completed. Our new owners bring a wealth of offshore technology and experience into our operation and we are very excited about what the future as the Mohn Aqua Group holds for us.”

Stein Mohn, Chairman of the Board of Mohn Aqua Group said “We are delighted to have acquired the business of Bennex Aqua. The aquaculture industry represents a huge opportunity for us and for the technology we can provide. We are also very pleased that Chris Hyde and his team are with us going forward.”
