Through an artificial intelligence (AI) for salmon analytics pilot, ABB and Microsoft have co-created a solution with Norway Royal Salmon, a leading producer of sustainable salmon, to produce quality food in a safer and more environmentally responsible way. 

According to ABB, the pilot demonstrated that NRS can improve the efficiency and safety of its workers, helping to avoid entering the open sea unnecessarily.

The new technology will also help reduce the CO2 footprint due to less operations, as well as maintain better fish welfare with cleaner seas and improved efficiencies.

NRS farming COO Arve Olav Lervag said: “Norway Royal Salmon has always focused on extensive research, development, cooperation and innovation.

“To continuously improve sustainability and increase the safety of our individuals, we worked with ABB and Microsoft to co-create innovative ways that empower us to achieve more on every level.”

The new technology has been deployed with remote visual object detection for biomass estimation and fish population counting. The new technology is supported by Microsoft’s Azure cloud and ABB Ability.
