February 4, 2022 By Hatchery International Staff
AquaBounty Technologies, Inc. has announced the initiation of site preparations for the construction of the its planned 10,000 metric ton (MT) salmon farm in Pioneer, Ohio.
In an AquaBounty press release, company CEO Sylvia Wulf expressed her enthusiasm about achieving critical pre-construction milestones, which will allow building to commence once the spring thaw has occurred. “The construction of roadways and onsite energy infrastructure, as well as the setting of surveyor’s benchmarks ahead of grading work, are underway as we speak.”
Still coping with the restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic, AquaBounty is looking to get ahead of supply chain challenges by implementing a set of rigorous processes, while containing any potential price increases, which could include the ordering of key recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) technology items including disc filters and the pre-engineered metal building (PEMB) for the farm.
“We are planning an official groundbreaking ceremony and will communicate the details in the coming weeks. This marks an incredibly exciting milestone for AquaBounty and a time to celebrate with, and thank the Village of Pioneer, Williams County, and the State of Ohio, for their on-going support,” Wulf concluded.
