CCS Feed Selector with 4 connections

CAP Wireless Transmitter

SmartEye 360 Twin Underwater Camera

BlueLED 360W Underwater Light

Salmon farms now have fewer and bigger cages, eliminating the need for many feed pipes for each feed line. Despite having only 4 connections, the 90mm or 110mm feed pipe diameter ensure that our new feed systems can deliver serious capacity performance with up to 192 kg/minute and 1400m long feed pipes!

The new wireless CAP (Cage Access Point) provides reliable two-way data and control communication between cages and farm base. The CAP can transmit live video from multiple underwater and surface cameras and data from environmental- and pellet sensors. It has a built-in surface camera is used for monitoring fish surface activity and feed spread.

The new SmartEye 360 Twin has a contineous 360o pan and tilt, no external moveable parts, which makes it very reliable. Combined with SmartWinch, the SmartEye 360 Twin Camera can cover the entire cage, for feeding and inspection purposes.

The new BlueLED 360W with blue light rays is our newly developed underwater light for cages. Utilizing the newest High Intensity LEDtechnology, it is even more effective than our Integra 1000W, yet consumes only a third of the power! Moreover, the blue light is proven to be the most efficient color temperature to manipulate fish biology.

Vicass HD Biomass Estimator

EcoNet (PET) Nets

The new Vicass HD now connects to a rugged and light weight Tablet PC. The highly accurate and efficient biomass estimator takes high quality digital stereo images of the live fish swimming in the cage. This sizes the fish to calculate its weight.

The unique long life Polarcirkel EcoNet may totally change fish farming as we know it today! The non-fibre wire will keep the EcoNet shape intact even in strong currents, and will therefore maximize water flow and oxygen to the fish. The strength of the PET and semi-rigid mesh also make the EcoNet virtually escape and predator proof.

AKVA group’s team of professionals knows what is important for your success in the aquaculture industry. We are able and willing to take on the responsibility for delivering

Two heads think better than one, says an old proverb. In terms of planning an aquaculture operation it translates into allowing people with different know-howto work together in the planning process. Letting AKVA’s technical experts team up with your own operational experts will allow a more holistic view of the planned project.

Budgeting means planning ahead to create an image of the size and shape of your operations. It is imperative for the finance- and sales department in their jobs. Allowing technical considerations into the budget will also help you identify constraints or bottlenecks in your operation.

AKVA group offers full Farm Management Support to help fine-tune your site and for consultation and staff training, ensuring the best possible results.


Hardware solutions

Are you happy with standard solutions or does your operation or employees require fine tuning of some of the hardware? In a carefully planned turn-key project, specific hardware requirements can be taken into account at an early stage so they won’t add extra costs or delays along the way.

Software solutions

“I know the software can do it, if I can only figure out how.” We have heard it before, and aim to make all software solution a user-friendly and integrated part of your operation. This will turn it from a headache to a tool that helps you communicate with your equipment, and helps your fish talk back to you.

Training

Many think instruction manuals are tedious, they are, but still an important part of successful farm operations. Sufficient training of your staff and managers will minimize the amount of frustration that builds up while browsing through a manual in search of a solution to a problem. Training of staff, face-to-face is always a smart investment.

Turning the key to a better operation A turn-key solution is a new concept in the aquaculture industry. Choosing a AKVA group turn-key supplier is like choosing a business partner to help you plan and shape the best possible aquaculture operation based on your initial idea, challenge or problem. Your partner will take part in the planning and design of solutions to make your new farm optimal with regards to biological, economical- and technical risk, mechanical system design, site evaluation, system drawings, project planning, construction, assembly, startup and training of managers and personnel.

Software support

Service & Maintenance support

Systems running year on end, sometimes in extreme weather, will always be subject to extensive wear and tear. In order to maintain steady operations, preventive service ageements and proper maintenance are critical. AKVA group’s Service department has decades of experience in supporting and doing maintenance under such conditions.

AKVA group, the leader in aquaculture software AKVA group’s software division has its origins in the merger between Maritech and Superior Systems. Both companies were market leaders within their fields; Superior Systems within operational control of marine and freshwater operations, and Maritech in systems for packing, sales, logistics and financial management of seafood production. AKVA group

has since then safeguarded their unique position, and has developed the integration between the systems even further. As a result, Fishtalk is the most robust, flexible and user-friendly aquaculture software on the market. Integrated companies are able to trace every single fish from broodstock to the end customer, including audit trails, documentation and financial management.

30 years of innovative solutions AKVA group developed the first solutions for the seafood industry as long ago as in 1978. The very first system was run on an office computer, creating simple final notes for fish-buyers in Norway. From here packing systems for weighing and labeling salmon and trout were developed, followed by even more sophisticated aquaculture management solutions. This allowed for

detailed farm records, as well as accurate planning and forecasting. Thereafter, the sales and logistics solutions adapted especially to fish trading were launched. Fishtalk is in use by most Norwegian aquaculture and fishery companies, a strong testimony to the fact that AKVA group offers aquaculture software solutions that are second to none!

International rules and regulations The requirements imposed by national authorities for the aquaculture industry are in most countries changing rapidly and becoming increasingly more demanding. AKVA group’s Fishtalk solutions provide a sound basis for certification in accordance to the Global Gap and BR C quality standards. These require documentation for food safety, as well as for Health, Safety and Environment standards (HSE). This includes HACCP. Fishtalk also simplifies the mandatory reporting to the authorities.

Tailor-made solutions for cost effective aquaculture With decades of experience to draw from, our professional consultants will act as both partners and advisors. This in turn ensures the best possible return investment. It is not just a question of installing the software; training and knowing how to use it correctly is equally important. Our consultants will help you optimize your farming process; they will ensure that you deliver

the correct product to the correct customer every time; they will help you maintain recordkeeping to a minimum; they will enable you to target your sales to the market offering the best price, and so on. When providing our software division with your requirements, we will customize the solutions to make your business as efficient as possible.

Cages

- the world´s leading cage supplier AKVA group is the world’s leading supplier of both plastic and steel cages. Polarcirkel, the most recognized brand in aquaculture, invented the plastic cage concept in Norway in 1974, and has since supplied more than 40,000 cages worldwide. The renowned Wavemaster steel cages originated in Ireland in 1985, and close to 10,000 cages have since been delivered globally. In order to ensure the highest possible quality, competitive pricing and on-time deliveries, the cages and components are manufactured in many different regions. All cages are installed by professional installation teams, and serviced by professional AKVA group service technicians. AKVA group invests heavily in innovative and professional R&D in order to remain the leading supplier of cages; not only to improve products in the short term, but also to look into the future of tomorrow’s demands for cage technology.

Polarcirkel Cages

www.akvagroup.com 26


All-Plastic-Cages: A well proven concept in flexible cage design for extreme conditions... Experience is a crucial success factor in the fish farming business. AKVA group (Polarcirkel) invented the plastic cage in 1974, and has since supplied more than 40.000 Polarcirkel Cages and 1.000 Polarcirkel Boats. The cages are made from raw materials especially suited for the dynamic loads of the sea, and are available in a wide range of models, shapes and sizes to suit individual needs. Many have tried to copy these products, but none have managed to match the genuine Polarcirkel designs and quality builds. Plastic cages started out as small single pipe circles, but now our largest models approach 200m circumference, and with floating pipes of 500mm diameter. Both circular and square cage systems are available. Combined with AKVA group´s global sales and service network, the Polarcirkel Cage is well proven and recognized worldwide.

Safe Polarcirkel walkways In order to increase crew safety on fish farms, another Polarcirkel innovation was launched in 1999; the integrated Polarcirkel Walkways. The anti-skid walkway panels fit securely between the two floating pipes, forming a stable and safe working surface. The PE pressure moulded panels are held in place with strong and flexible continuous PE tubing inter-locking the panels to the PIM brackets.

New PIM Bracket design provides superior strength. Strong and rigid HDPE hand rails.

The Polarcirkel cages include smart solutions for fully integrated walkways, sinker tube systems, safety floatation and system redundancies.

A secondary redundancy safety chain placed inside the outer floating pipe is optional.

Polarcirkel quality and certification All Polarcirkel Cages are manufactured and assembled in accordance with AKVA group’s Quality Assurance System (ISO 9001) which is certified by DNV (Det Norske Veritas). All cages in Norway are designed in accordance with NS9415 (Norwegian Standard 9415 for cage farming equipment to prevent fish escape).

Polarcirkel 500mm cage - a safe and stable platform designed for extreme weather conditions.


Polarcirkel Cages - designed for rough conditions... Strong Polarcirkel PIM Brackets Extensive use of PE (Polyethylene) in our PIM (Pressure Injection Moulded) brackets eliminates corrosion, minimizes expensive and difficult maintenance, and substantially increases cage lifespan compared to steel brackets. This is especially important in areas with high salinity, warm water temperatures and choppy seas. Only strong and high quality PE is used for Polarcirkel brackets, while many suppliers use weak and low quality rotationally moulded Medium and Low Density Polyethylene. This makes the Polarcirkel brackets superior in terms of structural strength, durability and UV resistance. This is especially important in high energy offshore farm sites and areas with high UV radiation from the sun.

Polarcirkel Nova-315/Nova-400 Bracket

Polarcirkel PIM-500 Bracket

For areas prone to icing, such as Norway and Canada, another critical advantage of the Polarcirkel HDPE brackets is that they will not ice up as steel brackets do. Icing is a dangerous safety problem for all floating structures, including cages. Heavy ice overloads the cage, reduces stability and jeopardizes overall cage integrity. As the name indicates, the Polarcirkel cages are well suited for extreme arctic conditions! All Polarcirkel Cage designs are carried out by our professional R&D department. Independent marine engineering consultants are also involved in advanced static and dynamic load calculations to ensure all designs meet or exceed expected real life loads as well as applicable industry standards.

Long life - built to withstand extreme conditions above and below the surface

Polarcirkel cages are known for their strong railings and high reserve buoyancy, which is crucial in case of sudden excessive net loads or icing.


Polarcirkel cage sizes The most popular models are the circular cages in 315, 400, 450 and 500mm floating pipes with circumferences from 90-160m.

Proven Sinker Tube concept As cages grew bigger and nets became harder and harder to control in strong currents, Polarcirkel invented the sinker tube concept in 1989. A concept that later has been adopted as an industry standard. The Polarcirkel Sinker Tube consists of a 200-280mm heavy walled PE pipe filled with steel wires (typically 20-70 kg/m). It is supported by strong ropes fastened through the stainless steel sleeve in the PIM brackets.

AKVA groups proven sinker tube system uses a vertical rope. No metal parts, such as chain and shackles, can therefore cause damage to the net.

All the weight of the net and sinker tube system is supported by the floating pipe - NOT by the handrail.

29

When harvesting, the net volume is reduced by lifting vertical ropes of the sinker tube system. This leaves no load on the handrails.

Superiour stability - smart accessories... Extra wide catamaran design

New Polarcirkel Anchoring Connector

Polarcirkel’s extra wide catamaran design ensures maximum cage stability and railing stiffness. Combined with strong stanchions and interlocked railing design, this make the Polarcirkel Cages safe and easy to work on without sacrificing seaworthiness and strength. Due to its low weight-to-strength ratio, the Polarcirkel Cages have very high reserve buoyancy compared to cages with other brackets. This easily results in our larger cages having up to 4-5 metric tons higher reserve buoyancy. This substantially increases cage safety margins in case of sudden operational problems that weigh down the cages (icing, mass mortality, storms, strong currents etc.).

We are now introducing a new and innovative anchoring connector system that simplifies the anchoring process and improves the structural strength of the cage when anchored at the site. This anchoring connection is also NS9415 certified. (Norwegian Standard 9415).

Unique Polarcirkel redundancy systems In addition to obvious redundancy safety factors such as individually secured brackets, individually secured anchoring connector and Styrofoam inside floating pipes, Polarcirkel also offer an optional secondary continous safety chain inside the outer floating pipe. This will serve as an unbreakable barrier in case the cages integrity is severely compromised. Keeping the chain inside the pipe leaves it out of the weather until needed and maintains a clean exterior cage layout. All of this makes the Polarcirkel Cages the safest and most escape proof cages on the market!

Main design features include: • • • • •

Practical and safe shackle point connection No corrosion No boat damage or obstruction from anchor lines Separates cage bracket from anchor load Allows for custom positioning to match anchor grid system • Primary load to inner floating pipe that carries main net loads • Secondary back-up connection to outer floating pipe • Extra wide load distribution sleeve eliminates point loading • Freely rotates anchor load perpendicular to the floating pipe • PE sleeve on PE pipe minimizes pipe chafe • Sideways locking system allows for safe angular loads

The new Polarcirkel anchoring connector eliminates most of the weak points typical of steel brackets: Corrosion, damage to work boats, sideways jamming of brackets, chafe on floating pipes, need for chafe sleeves, point loading floating pipes, bending connection lugs, icing loads etc.

Net Hooks & Accessories A wide range of integrated accessories are available for the Polarcirkel Cages, including: • Various types of Polarcirkel Net Hooks. These systems simplify net handling on the cages and provide a secure attachment point for your nets. • Polarcirkel Center Support Stands. These are placed in the center of the cage to keep the bird nets high off the water. Standard sizes from 1.5m to 5m high. Custom sizes are also available. • Feed systems, cameras and environmental sensors, wireless networks, cage lighting etc.

A flexible solution with a wide range of accessories

Polarcirkel Cages are used all over the world, such as here at a Vietnam cobia farm.

Most plastic cages are moored in a grid system and include sinker tube, center support stand, feed system/barge, cameras and sensors.

Wide non-slip walkways with high freeboard around all sides of the cages allow the operator full flexibility of operation and easy access from cage to cage. This is becoming essential for good husbandry and maintenance. The compactness and simplified mooring arrangements make Wavemaster Steel Cages a very attractive option for many sites. The cages are available in a wide range of models, single- or double string systems and sizes up to 40x40m to suit individual needs.

Photo showing bushing type hinge for less exposed sites.

The upper surface of each float incorporates sloping surfaces so that any feed or debris deposited can be washed away by wave action or water hose. High reserve buoyancy is crucial in case of sudden excessive net loads.

The patented moulded rubber hinge system allows the cage structure to adapt to the wave profile, thereby reducing loads on the member and ensuring longer life of the cages.

A wide range of smart, intergrated accessory solutions

Wavemaster has a proven track record of installations on a wide range of sites and in many different climates around the world, such as here in Chile.

The handrail system provides tie off points at the main walkway level, posts to support the net and removable handrails. They can easily be removed while the net is tied to the posts. 35

The Wavemaster Steel Cages include smart solutions for fully integrated non-slip walkways, net supports and floats with self-draining top.


Wavemaster - a trusted steel cage concept... Wavemaster began producing steel cages in Ireland in 1985, in Canada in 1988 and in Chile in 1990, and today supplies cages to all world markets. The large number of cages currently in use on a wide variety of sites, operating under diverse wave and wind conditions world wide, has demonstrated the reliability of the Wavemaster design. Produced locally and designed to suit local markets, Wavemaster provides the most cost effective steel cages available to the industry. Steel cages are suitable for sites with moderate exposure and strong tidal currents. Combined with a global sales and service network, the Wavemaster Steel Cages are a well proven concept indeed!

Nets

Long-life EcoNets are eco-friendly, economical and virtually escape proof... The unique Polarcirkel EcoNet concept can totally change today’s fishfarming! This long-life net technology has been used to make over 4000 aquaculture nets in Japan over the last 20 years, in addition to nets for other purposes including shark nets, rock slide nets etc. The Polarcirkel EcoNet is made from very strong but light weight PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) and has superior characteristics. It is virtually escape-, and predator proof, and has a 20-year lifespan as opposed to nylon nets that often last only 4-6 years. The non-fibre wire has very hard surface that resists marine fouling and makes it easy to clean in the water using Idema Net Cleaners. This also eliminates the use of antifouling paints and ongoing net changes. The semi-rigid structure of the Polarcirkel EcoNet keeps the net shape intact and maximizes water flow and oxygen to the fish. PET is easily recyclable!

The EcoNet is manufactured in Japan.

New long-life net technology...

www.akvagroup.com 42


Deformation and loads Fish escaping trough holes in the net accounts for 65% of reported cases in Norway!

EcoNet sample after 20 years in seawater in Japan! The full tensile strength is retained.

Net deformation and loads are affected by three main factors: CURRENTS + NET TYPE (rigidity, drag, strenght) + NET WEIGHTS. The unique semirigid and low-drag EcoNets maintain a superior net shape in strong currents compared to conventional nets, thus providing optimum water flow and oxygen levels for your fish. Less net weights are therefore required to keep EcoNets in place. The result is reduced deformation/drag, reduced risk of net chafe or damage, as well as reduced overall displacement (weight) of the entire cage system. This means less load on the mooring systems and more reserve buoyancy for the cages.

The semi-rigid structure keeps the net shape intact and maximizes water flow and oxygen supply to the fish.

A 20cm long cut in a regular net will open wide and the fish will easily escape.

The EcoNets are made to withstand rough conditions, stormy weather, predators, biological or mechanical damage.

EcoNets keep the net shape intact and maximize water flow and oxygen to the fish...

AKVA group defines net depth for various net shapes as shown in figure above. The “net depth� is the total depth of the net to the bottom centre cone.

Polarcirkel EcoNet is extremely durable

For shorter periods, Polarcirkel EcoNet can be temporarily hooked onto the railing net hooks when dried up.

The floating plastic pipe (floating collar) is the component of the fish farming cage that should support the entire weight and loads of the EcoNet (not the railing).

www.akvagroup.com 44

The Polarcirkel EcoNets are made for rough, daily use, and built from very strong but light weight PET, (Polyethylene Terephthalate).


Easy to connect - easy to keep clean The EcoNet shall be connected to the cage by competent personnel that has been trained by AKVA group. Once the EcoNet is connected to the cage there is no need to disconnect it during normal operations. The only exeption will be in case of net damage or wear and tear that need repairs, or other mishaps or accidents. The EcoNets are cleaned in the water and are not taken out for cleaning or antifouling. Standard EcoNets are made for circular and square cages. The upper section have vertical walls with a 1m jump-net up top and the bottom is normally cone shaped.

Net handling and fish husbandry Although the EcoNet is semi-rigid, it can still be handled in very similar ways to a nylon net. This includes drying up the net for crowding fish during harvest, fastening the net to the cages and attaching sinker tubes etc. However, as the EcoNet is being tested and used in new markets and for new species, new and better techniques will continue to be developed to simplify net handling and ensure the best possible fish husbandry.

The shape of the EcoNet wire mesh is designed to remain intact if a single wire is cut. This means the mesh will remain stable and the shape intact with minimum negative effect of the strength of the net cage structure. The Polarcirkel EcoNet is made from very strong but light weight PET, (Polyethylene Terephthalate).

The Polarcirkel EcoNet is available in two different mesh sizes: • EcoNet is approved for fishfarming use according to Norwegian Standard 9415 (NS9415).

Idema Net Cleaning Systems

www.akvagroup.com 46


Effective Net Cleaning ensures optimum oxygen levels and faster growth... Idema Net Cleaners were launched in 1987, and are today renowned for quality, high performance and their ease of use. The first Net Cleaners had single 30cm diameter cleaning discs, operated from the cage edge using a shaft. Underwater pressure washing of cages containing fish has become even more common as the requirements to environmentally friendly aquaculture in larger cages provides the best scale of economics. With this in mind we have developed and improved the Idema Net Cleaners and can now present the best range of Net cleaners and high pressure pumps ever. This combination offers you the most effecient cleaning system suited for all types and sizes of cages. The new ejector creates a significantly better push against net. It is available as an option on all on all new frames, or as an upgrade-kit for already delivered net cleaners.

Growth curve for salmon Good waterflow through the nets are crucial at high water temperatures.

Redused marine fouling improves the environmental conditions Fouled net: Water with oxygen passes outside the cage. Clean net: Water with oxygen is flowing through the cage.

Strong marine fouling on the net will reduce the oxygen supply. Algea growth can increase bacterial loads and cause diseases and stress in the biomass.

It is proven that increased marine fouling leads to reduced water flow. As a result, the oxygen rich water will mostly flow around the cage.

47

The width of the cleaning path ranges from 80cm up to 290cm. The largest model uses 7 washing discs.


Environmentally friendly, flexible and smart solutions... In Net Cleaning, filtered high pressure sea water is used to remove marine fouling on the nets. Idema Net Cleaners use rotating cleaning discs mounted on support frames in various shapes and combinations. We use rugged, tailor-made highpressure pumps to drive the cleaning discs. The cleaning process starts with submerging the frame on the inside of the net, using only sea water under high pressure. Idema cleaning systems do not use chemicals or scrubbing action making them environmentally friendly while ensuring minimal wear on the nets. One of the new models in the Idema range; an effective 7 disc washing rig with a stainless steel protective for the net.

The width of the cleaning path ranges from 80cm, up to 290cm for the largest model using 7 washing discs. The discs are generally delivered in 40cm diameter but can also be ordered in 30cm or 50cm diameter.

The Heavy Duty center bearing with silicium-carbide pressure housing mean less service calls and minimal down time.

Heavy Duty Cleaning discs with smooth front rail in stainless steel ensures minimal wear of the net. The discs have low resistance in the water, extra high rotation speed - from 750 to 1500 rpm depending of water pressure, flow rate and cleaning disc diameter.

Extra strong 2-layer steel reinforced high pressure hose with strong connector fittings for heavy duty use.

Environmental data helps you to stimulate growth

Idema Net Cleaners also keep nets clean in tropical waters, as here in Thailand.

It is extremly important to keep the weight of the cages light in cold periods. Icing and fouling can indirectly cause breakdowns and serious damage.

www.akvagroup.com 48

This Optical Oxygen Sensor connects directly to the feed system and can stop the feeding at low oxygen levels.


A wide range of models - up to 7 cleaning discs The large Net Cleaners can be operated in automatic mode by two persons using a crane, winch, cap stand or as a integrated option on ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle). The smallest Net Cleaners can easily be operated from the cage by a single person.

A video camera provides full control of the Net Cleaning On the larger Idema frames we offer tailor-made camera and video systems that provide a full overview, and the possibility to inspect of the nets. A camera installed direcly on the Net Cleaner will send you crystal clear video images that can be saved for later inspection and documentation of the net cleaning process.

With a Polarcirkel Cabin workboat you can easily visit the site and watch the net cleaning on a PC screen.

With one of our smart camera systems you can watch the net cleaning both above and below water, via cable or via a wireless sensor network (CAP).

Feed system All barges have built-in Akvasmart CCS Feed Systems, and the largest models are available with up to 12 parallel feed lines. Most are supplied with 90mm Quattro systems (4 feed lines), but some with Twin (2) and some Hexa (6). The Feed Blowers are installed in the machine room together with the control cabinets. Cooling pipes for the feed transport air are welded to the outside hull in a protected position below the water line. The standard dimension is 110mm in order to prepare all barges for future expansions. The feed enters the air flow through the Doser Valves and is then blown through seamless stainless pipes inside the barge and up to the Selector Valves on the exterior main deck platforms. From there, the feed continues through the PE feeding pipe to each cage, where Rotor Spreaders distribute the feed onto the cage surface. The entire process and feed system is FEED CARE CERTIFIED. All optional equipment, such as networks for integrated camera-, pellet- and environmental sensors is installed at the shipyard. The barges are ready for start-up and feeding once it is moored at the farm site and feeding pipes connected. All systems are operated from the comfortable main Control Room, with great panoramic views of the cages.

Most feed barges are supplied with Quattro feed system (4 feed lines). The Blowers connect directly to efficient cooling pipes outside the underwater hull.

Feed silos All barges have large built-in bulk feed silos with weather proof loading hatches at the upper deck level. The standard loading hatches are 180x240cm with two smaller hatches inserted. This enables maximum utilization of available silo volume when fully loading the silos. The number of silos ranges from 4 to 24 (see table), but most barges have the optimal 8 silos for the Quattro feed systems. The silo capacity range from 15-70 metric tons depending on the model (silo capacities are based on salmon feed density of 650kg/m3). The feed is normally loaded using a crane and bulk-bags (500-1000kg bags), but the latest method is bulk delivery directly from large feed supply vessels using blowers or conveyors.

Each silo can hold from 15 - 70 mtons of feed and connects to a FEED CARE CERTIFIED doser valve that transfer feed into the stainless feeding pipe.

Userfriendly disinfection and cleaning The Akvasmart Feed System concept is the only central feed system on the market designed to allow for simple but thorough cleaning and disinfecting if required. The silos can be steam cleaned and degreased internally with the Feed Doser and Feed Blower running, blowing debris and grey water out of the barge. This process also cleans dosers, internal piping, selector valve and feed pipes.

Once the feed has entered the internal stainless feed pipes, the selector valve sends it to the correct cage via flexible HDPE feed pipe.

Full control of the feeding process from silo to cage...

All internal feed piping systems are FEED CARE CERTIFIED stainless steel pipes with optimal connections, bends and routing to preserve the pellets.

Silo loading hatches are available in various sizes. Photo showing dual size bulk loading hatches for blower / conveyor filling.


Up to 12 parallel feed lines... The feed is loaded into the silos using either bulk bags or bulk blower/conveyor systems. Hatches are available in various sizes.

The feed storage capacity in each silo range from 15-70 metric tons (based on a density of salmon feed at 650kg/m3).

Steel plate thicknesses of 5.5 - 6.5mm.

The silo sections are often made with corrugated steel plates in order to achieve high strength to weight ratio and smooth internal surfaces.

Akvasmart Feed Dosers are. available with capacities from 10g/sec. to 192kg/min. Real time measurement of airflow, backpressure and temperature ensures optimum feed handling.

The unique Akvasmart CCS feed system is perfectly integrated on a wide range of Wavemaster feed barges.

The air control system keep the pellet speed in the gentle feed handling area, significantly reducing the risk of blockage and breakage.

Rotor Spreaders

Rotor Spreder designed for tanks, 32mm or 63mm rotor tip.

Faster and even growth from excellent feed spread The unique Rotor Spreader is designed to provide excellent feed spread in cages. All our models have adjustable light weight aluminium rotor pipes that allow for lower air speed for startup and rotation. This means less dust and breakage, power consumption, back pressure, air temperature, noise and wear and tear on the feed pipes. Our unique ventilated Zenon bearing requires no regular cleaning and does not corrode. Due to its light displacement and low point of gravity, the Rotor Spreader is very stable in rough seas. All Akvasmart Rotor Spreaders are easy to install and simple to maintain.

Twistable rotor tip in hardened aluminum.

- rugged, portable feeding control

Why use a camera to monitor feeding? Cage sizes have rapidly increased over the last 20 years, and as a result, the visible area has decreased accordingly. In a cage of 160 diameters, only 0,2% is visible from the surface. Therefore a submersible camera is a requirement for monitoring and controlling feeding. Fish Farm Inspection system flow chart:

Doppler DPS Pellet Sensor

www.akvagroup.com 92


lntelligent pellet sensor with built-in camera... Correct feeding is key to achieving good fish farming results. The Akvasmart Doppler Digital Pellet Sensor (DPS) allows for feeding the fish to satiation automatically. Both the feed rate and feed amount are adapted to fish appetite. This ensures that the fish get the correct amount of feed, at the right rate and at the right time. This sensor is installed below the fish’ main eating area in the cages and uses our patented Doppler technology to detect uneaten pellets. It has a built-in video camera for visual control and calibration of the Doppler DPS.

Built-in video camera at the top of the sensor.

The feeding is regulated automatically based on the amount of pellets passing the sensing area.

Stop feeding

Reduce feeding

The sensor regulates the feeding based on amount of uneaten pellets passing the sensing area of the Doppler DPS.

The Doppler DPS is suspended underneath the main eating area of the fish and detects uneaten pellets sinking towards the sensor.

93

The built-in video camera looks straight up towards the surface during the feeding in order to see uneaten pellets.

Environmental data is a critical feeding parameter... To know the environmental data as temperature, oxygen and current speed are factors that are important inputs when feeding fish. In the Akvasmart CCS Feed System all these factors can be set to automatically control or adjust the feeding. All environmental data will be logged and can be used in further analyses either in AkvaControl or in Fishtalk. Temperature - the foundation for all feeding regimes and growth models. The Akvasmart Temperature Sensor is a reliable and robust sensor that can be submerged at desired depths. Accurate real time readings are displayed and logged by the AkvaControl Feed System software. AkvaControl can calculate the expected daily feed amount based on feed tables with measured temperature data. The Akvasmart Temperature Sensor is connected to the Akvasmart CCS Feed System either by connection to the Akvasmart CCS Selector Valve or via the CAP network.

The machined bronze housing prevents marine fouling and makes the sensor low maintenance.

Oxygen – an important factor for growth and fish welfare. The Akvasmart Oxygen Sensor is connected to the Akvasmart CCS Feed System and can stop the feeding at low oxygen levels in water. The Oxygen Sensor is an optical sensor that is robust and dependable with no need for water flow. The only maintenance is periodic cleaning and there is no need for re-calibration. The principle of operation is to illuminate the oxygen as the reflected light is a measurement of dissolved oxygen in the water. Environmental current – knowledge’s prevents feed waste The Akvasmart Current Sensor is connected to the Akvasmart CCS Feed System and will prevent feed waste caused by tidal current that pushing pellets out of the cage. The Akvasmart Current Sensor is located in strategic positions at site and you set which cages that are connected to the sensor and the maximum tidal current speed (in cm/sec) that allows feeding. When the current speed exceeds the limit, the feeding temporarily stops in these cages and resumes at slack current later, all other cages will be feed as scheduled.

The absolute oxygen concentration is measured by illuminating a membrane with modulated blue light and by reading the phase changes in the reflected red light. The signal is then linearised and temperature compensated.

The Current Sensor angles like a pendulum when exposed to currents. The angle is measured and converted electronically to cm/sec.

Accurate environmenent control is a important insurance

Continuous data readings from the cages are transmitted through the Akvasmart wireless sensor network (CAP) or via an EAP (Environmental Access Point).

Using the Temperature Sensor in combination with an Oxygen Sensor gives a good picture of the environment.

95

The integration between Akva Control and Fishtalk software provides the choice of where and when to analyse the environmental data.


www.akvagroup.com 96


Environmental Access Point (EAP) Full integration of environmental sensors The EAP is directly linked to the Akvasmart CCS Feed System via the AkvaControl software. Collecting and logging environmental data from one or multiple depths provides better control of the feeding and possibilities of analysis of environmental data compared to feeding data. The EAP (Environmental Access Point) is a robust sensor connection hub that allows connection of multiple sensors in one location. The two-way communication between EAP and the feed system is either wireless or hard wired. The EAP is then an active part of the feed system, allowing connection of sensors such as temperature, oxygen and current.
