At AquaMaof, flexibility is built into everything we do. It’s in the way we think. It’s in our unique, multidisciplinary approach to fish farming. And it’s in our fully-customizable RAS facilities, which are designed to enable the scalability required to meet the current and future needs of our customers achieving the optimal economic efficiency.

Building flexibility into the design stage

AquaMaof’s RAS (Recirculation Aquaculture System) technology is flexible from the earliest stages of design, enabling a fully-customizable solution in a tailor-made RAS facility that suits the specific customer’s needs – today and into the future. Rather than using standard, off-the-shelf elements, we fully customize every component of each RAS facility to ensure that everything functions in the most optimal, flexible, and cost-effective way for your business.
To do this, at the design stage we identify and characterize your exact business requirements, the characteristics of the terrain on which the facility is to be built, and the various market needs and demands at play. By anticipating trends and configuring the facility’s layout accordingly from the outset, we enable you to scale up production, or even switch species, if your business strategy and market conditions change in the future.

Achieving optimal scale and economic efficiency

As well as flexibility in the design stage, with our advanced planning the optimal scale of AquaMaof’s RAS facility systems will give you the advantages of size and economic efficiency. Whereas other systems require duplication to scale up production, resulting in additional expenses and installations, AquaMaof optimal scale systems enable you to vary production capacity according to customer and market needs, without making changes to the existing treatment systems, adding extra treatment units or systems, or changing existing components. The optimal scalability of the systems enables to cost-effectively scale up production at your RAS facility.
AquaMaof’s optimally-designed specialized settling system, biofilter and other systems can efficiently handle different scales of production, maintaining a constant water flow through the system, keeping up with the required capacity, and separating suspended solids. In most traditional RAS systems, solids are separated in a drum filter system at a given volume, with the entire technology design being built around these pre-defined capabilities. With AquaMaof technology, the settlers are carefully designed to the optimal size to meet operational needs, without the need to add or duplicate additional units. So, AquaMaof’s settling system enables continuous water treatment of the highest standards, while saving energy and preventing suspended solids, sediments, or waste particles from returning to the water supply.

Realizing your business potential

AquaMaof enables you to achieve significant savings, including capex savings during construction and fitting out. We achieve this by tailoring the design of your RAS facility to the structure or terrain on which it is to be built, and customizing components to both optimize use of the available space and ensure efficient use of electricity and water consumption.
Design flexibility and optimal scalability of the systems also provide an additional level of business and economic efficiency. Knowing that your facility can be used in different ways in the future, you can take a dynamic approach to your business model, making informed decisions, in advance – being proactive rather than reactive. Having considered emerging market trends up front, you have the agility to increase/ decrease production, or even switch to producing a different type of fish as consumer tastes evolve. This way, you can make sure your business stays relevant and profitable.

In today’s ever-changing world, flexibility and scalability are key to the ability of any business to succeed. AquaMaof gives you both.
