Lerøy Aurora AS and Laksefjord AS order Infor EAM maintenance system from Prevas.
Lerøy Aurora AS is a part of Lerøy Seafood Group ASA (www.leroy.no), a leading exporter of fish and shellfish from Norway and the world's second-largest producer of Atlantic salmon.
Lerøy Aurora AS, headquartered in Tromsö, is self-sufficient in smolt (young salmon) thanks to its fully owned subsidiary Laksefjord AS, and the company has its own salmon processing and packaging plant. The plant has a daily capacity of approximately 330,000 kg, working in two shifts.
Laksefjord AS is responsible for smolt production in Lerøy's northern Norwegian salmon operations and produces about 7 million smolts each year. An increase in production to 11 million smolts is planned for 2014 and expansion has already begun.
Both of these companies have now chosen Infor EAM from Prevas as their new maintenance system and are initiating the implementation project during August.
“We previously looked at several different maintenance systems,” says Geir-Sigvart Isaksen, lead engineer at Lerøy Aurora and employed at the company since 2007.
“Infor EAM has the user friendliness and functionality we’re looking for,” Geir-Sigvart Isaksen adds. “Prevas could also provide us with a number of references in the fish breeding industry. But what was most important for us in deciding on a supplier was that Prevas was the first to also focus on the gains that can be achieved by implementing a maintenance system, the grounds for choosing a system and the benefits of good system support for maintenance. This gave us the confidence to choose Prevas as our partner and we're looking forward to putting Infor EAM into service.”
Infor EAM was developed by Infor Global Solutions and is one of the world's most widely distributed service and maintenance systems with more than 15,000 customers in the public and private sectors. Version 11 of the system was recently released. It has been called “the most significant EAM solution in ten years” and has been praised by both customers and analysis firms alike. The solution is provided in the Nordic countries by Prevas, which recently attained Gold Partner status for Infor.
“We're proud that yet another major player in the fish breeding industry has chosen us as a partner,” says Einar Alexander Andersen, sales manager at Prevas AS. “Many of the larger companies in the industry use Infor EAM because of its functionality and scalability. We're looking forward to working on the project together with Lerøy Aurora and Laksefjord, and providing them with support once the system is implemented.
