RecomFarm is an initiative created from the purpose of our organisation and aiming on a sustainable future.

Located on a, from ecologic and logistic point of view, optimal site in the North Sea or Waddenzee the first RecomFarm will be installed. A human-created environment with ideal circumstances for shellfish, fish- and algae species to develop, grow and reproduce. A plant from which these products subsequently can be harvested responsibly to be further processed at local fish auctions.

The created culture environment will be set up in former offshore-constructions. Offshore jackets are dismantled, refurbished and installed in the North Sea or Waddenzee. In, at and around RecomFarm sustainable energy will generated by taking advantage of wind and/or tides.

A wonderful perspective for mankind, wildlife and environment.

ConceptProposition RecomFarm
Project RecomFarm is created from the purpose of our company: “Creating sustainable solutions to continue and ensure the fishing industry, C.I.V., it’s members and its environment in near and later future.”

Research, development, realisation
Project RecomFarm was initiated late 2015 and will be further developed for future implementation. The concept originated from current developments in the fishery industry. The branch is threatened in its existence and it is necessary to create solutions to ensure the continuity of the industry and peripheral branches like fish auctions and the C.I.V.

The project is based on recycling existing offshore constructions into sustainable culture environments in the North Sea or Waddenzee.

Re-use of offshore constructions
In the next coming years numerous offshore constructions in the North Sea have to be decommissioned. Project RecomFarm aims for transport of jackets towards Den Helder, recycle and refurbish the structures on dedicated sites into seafarming installations. After refurbishment the jackets can be replaced in the North Sea or Waddenzee, at a ecologic and logistic advantageous location.

RecomFarm offers opportunities for a more sustainable fishery and as well extension of the assortment for fish auctions. Furthermore it offers possibilities for re-use of offshore constructions in the North Sea which have to be decommissioned. A profitable win-win situation!

The ambition is to create opportunities for an improved environment and business in the region Noord-Holland Noord, but it is obvious that the concept can be developed from the entire Dutch coast line. RecomFarm is innovative and future-looking. It’s an initiative perfectly fitting into current environmental and sustainability developments!
