It has been a pleasure to become a member of the Humboldt community over the past year.
After completing due diligence in Humboldt last fall, the Nordic Aquafarms California project is now in the midst of permitting work. This involves a range of scientific and engineering development work.
A local team is in place in our Eureka office, working closely with our teams in Maine and Europe, as well as involved permitting partners. The team in Maine is currently increasing its engagement in California to enable optimal progress and transfer of design know-how.
Applications for the Humboldt project will be submitted in the period from Spring through summer this year.
In February, the Norwegian Consul General Jo Slettbak and Innovation Norway made an official visit to Humboldt. Humboldt County and Norway have in common a strong interest in coastal development and sustainable industries.
We continue to schedule public information meetings and other meetings as relevant to ensure that the community updated on progress.
