Svein Tveiten joins Bio Marine

Bio Marine is strengthening its focus on lice skirts and has recruited Svein Brudeseth Tveiten as the new head of textile products. The use of lice skirts is a growing market. Hiring Tveiten is part of Bio Marine's strategy to develop its range of lice skirts further.

"Nature is unpredictable, while aquaculture requires predictability. More and more companies are choosing to install systems that ensure a good pen environment even during periods with challenging external conditions. As fish farmers increasingly prepare to protect the fish, we are seeing a rising demand for water circulation, oxygenation, monitoring, and also lice skirts," says Nils Hovden, marketing manager at Bio Marine, in a press release.

Tveiten is considered a doyen in the industry and has many years of experience producing lice skirts for aquaculture. He has run his own business at Rantex Flaarønning, focusing on the production of lice skirts and freshwater ponds based on various types of textiles. Tveiten is also behind several patented solutions used in aquaculture. The appointment of Tveiten marks a long-term goal at Bio Marine to offer complete solutions for cage environments.

"Through previous collaboration, we know well what Svein stands for," says Hovden, looking forward to having him on the team as Bio Marine develops a complete package within the cage environment. In recent years, Tveiten has worked as an advisor on the design and development of aquaculture equipment for various fish farmers and manufacturers.

"I know Bio Marine well from previous collaborations and look forward to contributing to the development of new products. Ambitious plans have been laid out, so this seems very exciting," says Svein Brudeseth Tveiten.
