KAMAT Partner Deploys Scotland’s First Aquaculture Net Cleaning Tech On West Coast Project

A pioneering net cleaning pump, designed and manufactured by North-East Scotland based engineering specialists, Brimmond, has successfully completed its first live industry campaign. Brimmond’s NetJet™ was deployed on a project with a key aquaculture firm, which operates multiple sites on the West Coast of Scotland. 

The high-end pump units were developed by Brimmond in-house following the identification of a gap in the flourishing aquaculture market for a rental option of net cleaning pumps. Brimmond invested c. £450K in developing the technology from initial concept and design to manufacturing and delivering this initial campaign.

The company has now established itself as the only business in the UK which offers a full 360o manufacture, rental and support package for high-pressure net cleaning pumps for the offshore aquaculture sector.

A true team effortBrimmond’s Managing Director, Tom Murdoch said: “Developing such a high-end piece of technology from initial concept through to an aquaculture net cleaning campaign on a West Coast fish farm, has truly been a team effort. So, it’s fair to say that everyone at Brimmond is absolutely thrilled to see how well the NetJet™ performed during its first outing on a live industry project. 

“As with all our other service offerings, our relationship with our customer extends far beyond the initial contract: we worked closely with them to establish vital details such as vessel footprint, location, and deck fastenings, connections and fittings.”

NetJetTM specThe NetJetTM 350D is a pump unit for net cleaning in the harshest of environments, featuring a KAMAT High Pressure Plunger pump, driven by a Scania DI09 Marine engine. The externally mounted duplex filters, air filtration and completely removeable canopy aid easy and safe maintenance, as well as increased uptime.

KAMAT High Pressure PumpHaving provided KAMAT equipment to clients for many years, Brimmond was named the UK and Ireland partner for KAMAT in 2022. The KAMAT High Pressure Plunger pump (Max flow – 500lpm / max pressure 230 Bar) was the natural choice for Brimmond’s flagship net cleaning technology.

The partnership with KAMAT allows Brimmond to provide clients with a superior product, offering higher quality and better durability. In addition, it also gives clients access to reliable advice, excellent customer service and technical support on site; as KAMAT partners, Brimmond demonstrate extensive knowledge and expertise – from design, installation and commissioning to maintenance and repair.
