Fish farming is a large and fast growing industry, and it is important to find sustainable farming methods that lead to lower environmental impact. This will enable the industry to grow without damaging the environment.
Currently, as the aquaculture industry is increasing, fish farms are moved further offshore due to improved water circulation and more space. This will lead to a higher number of fish farms without a grid connection. Subsequently this will result in an increase in fossil fuels needed to provide energy to:
- Feeding systems
- Monitoring equipment (cameras, sensors etc.)
- Handling equipment
- Underwater lights
- Deck lighting
- Heating systems
- Other electronical equipment on feeding barges
The EnergyPod brings a unique all-in-one renewable energy solution, which can support the aquaculture industry with clean power in these challenging offshore environments.
