Nordlaks Produkter AS
Data from Numerous Processes Aids Large Salmon Producer
This project has been developed by employees at the automation department of Nordlaks Produkter AS for the Nordlaks group. The project consists of several departments where operators can control entire processes and managers can extract information and data all the way down to the component level.
At Nordlaks' factory, there are many different processes that are delivered by many different suppliers. Nordlaks wanted a SCADA system that could collect all the data from the various processes and present them. Security and alerting were also very important.
Inductive Automation's Ignition designer and modules solved all of Nordlaks’ problems. Ignition now retrieves data over several different protocols such as Ethernet, Allen-Bradley CompactLogix (Legacy), UDP Driver, TCP Driver, BACnet / IP and Modbus TCP. The system communicates with devices from Siemens PLC S7-300-1200-1500, Omron PLC CJ1-CJ2 and many more like VEGA, SICK, IFM and Schneider.
The system is based around the Vision Module, but also leverages the Perspective Module on the factory floor and in fleet locations for mobile use.
Alarm notifications are sent via SMS and email. Nordlaks can now also adjust the safety specifications all the way down to the component level.

Nordlaks is a family-owned aquaculture group that creates value from all the resources in the value chain from roe to table. Based in Stokmarknes, we have activities from breeding work at one end to sales and marketing of first-class salmon products at the other. Nordlaks Produkter AS slaughters everything for farming, in addition to around 30,000 tonnes for other farmers; a total of about 70,000 tons per year. Further processing (filet products) as well as processing of residual raw materials are also part of Nordlaks Produkter.
