AgraME 2018, held at the Dubai World Trade Centre in early March, saw the first opportunity for the growing sector to see the innovative space saving solutions that are changing the industry. New blower solutions for feed conveying are allowing Fish Farmers to expand the existing feed capacity of their barges by up to 3 times.

The aquaculture sector has been the fastest growing food production market for the last 20 years.

More fish means more feed, current feed barges typically offer a capacities of up to 400 tonnes, featuring four to six feed lines. Therefore producers are looking to increase the number of feed barges they operate at huge cost.  The more cost effective alternative is to upgrade existing barges to a higher feed capacity, low space solution. However, traditional blower systems are too large, too noisy and too inefficient to meet these new demands

Good things come in small packages

Our new blower solutions are allowing barges to dramatically expand the number of feedlines they can support from their existing footprint.

Units’ such as the Robox Aqua and G-BH8 Aqua, exhibited at AgraME 2018, offer a compact design, small footprint, low noise emissions and performance levels making them ideally suited for fish feed conveyance. These machines are also offered with motor and frequency convertors, so operators can ensure efficiency levels remain optimised at all times.
