In 2016 Hauge Aqua were restructed in order to better focus the operation of each individual business area. The new strategy were that Hauge Aqua was to become a holding company focusing on developing new business areas. When a new area are mature enough to enter into a more formal development and commercialization process the area will be spun off into a separate subsidiary.
Hauge Aqua Solutions AS (HAS) was founded January 16th 2016, and is dedicated to development, sale and service of Egget ®.
Business model for HAS
First and foremost, first version of Egget® (postsmolt version) is now entering building phase and will be in the water Spring of 2022 to undergo necessary concept verification. It might therefore seem seem premature to discuss business models for the future of Egget ®. However, potential models which are subject to evaluation, are listed below.
- Traditional contracting and sale of eggs. Technical service agreements and maintenance.
- Egg rental on 15-year contracts. Technical service and maintenance agreements.
- Renting of operating time in the units including technical service and maintenance.
- Offering more extended services related to the operation of Egget ®
It is also possible that we may conclude on some form of combination of two or more of these models, or even models not mentioned here.
Based on the many inquiries we receive we also see a significant potential market for Egget ® outside the traditional Salmon farming industry.
