On a global scale, people are consuming more fish than ever before. This trend is due to the growth and development of sustainable land-based aquaculture, which causes less impact on the environment and builds a better economy. Land-based aquaculture is a rapid growing industry where demand for products and services are expected to increase significantly over the next twenty years.
Krüger Kaldnes offers world-class solutions for land-based aquaculture. Our solutions are designed by multidisciplinary engineering experts to help customers produce healthy and robust fish. Our goal is to improve resource management, quality monitoring, and sustainable and efficient operations.
As land-based aquaculture facilities continue to grow in scale, Krüger Kaldnes has the expertise to deliver on larger projects. We have delivered more than twenty facilities including the two largest smolt facilities in the world, Helgeland Smolt and Lerøy Sjøtroll.
At Krüger Kaldnes, we’re well aware of the issues and major environmental challenges of our century. Whatever function we’re serving for our customers, we’re driven by the desire to meet these challenges head on – using our skills for the good of the environment and preserving water resources. Internally, developing the skills and careers of our employees, as well as ensuring they have a safe place to work, are our priorities.
Our technologies are the foundation of our expertise. We take a structured approach to innovation, aiming to find new solutions that meet the needs of our customers while preparing our company for the years to come. By joining Krüger Kaldnes, you’ll play an active role in this evolution.

Diversified, numerous and borderless career paths
There is no set career path to trace. Completely the opposite, in fact. There are as many different career paths as there are individuals in our teams. Depending on your skills, experience and professional aspirations, it is up to you to define the path your career will take throughout your professional life – and you’ll have the freedom to do so at your own pace.
We share your vision by promoting training, sharing skills and encouraging internal mobility. As part of our desire to break down silos, we actively seek to bridge gaps between our different businesses as well as across departments and borders. Join Krüger Kaldnes and you’ll gain access to this exclusive network of highly skilled water treatment professionals.
As much as possible, we encourage and develop professional mobility in all its forms: functional mobility, transversal, geographical, etc. For us, everything is possible. Request a transfer and go to work and live in a new country or city. Or rise through the ranks within our headquarters and various operational entities. Change your specialisation. Use our resources to find your place in a totally new department.
As the main driver of your career and mobility, you’ll benefit from the support of our dedicated teams who can advise and support you in defining and implementing your projects.
Training throughout your working life
We run many training programs throughout the year, focusing on technical know-how as well as interpersonal skills. Available in every country we operate in, catering to transversal and managerial needs, our programs are designed to help promote and develop skills to support the employability of all our employees – regardless of hierarchical level or area of expertise. In line with the evolution of our organisation and context of our operations, we create, adjust and remodel our internal training offerings to match market needs.
