In a move towards sustainable aquaculture, AKVA group is thrilled to announce partnership with Inseanergy, marking a significant step towards being able to electrify the Chilean aquaculture industry. This collaboration is poised to transform low emission farming practices in the region by harnessing solar energy to power Chilean fish farming operations.

"This is good for the environment and aligns perfectly with the industry's shift towards sustainability. Chile's solar energy potential is particularly promising for the aquaculture industry, and we are excited to explore this further," says Christian Gerardo Schäfer Oyanedel– General Manager in AKVA group Chile.

By teaming up with Inseanergy and Kvernaland Energi, AKVA group embarks with a firm belief in the transformative power of low emission and deep farming technologies. The initiative aims at precision farming with minimal emissions, incorporating advanced hybrid battery systems, solar power plants, software, and control systems tailored to meet the challenging demands of sustainable aquaculture.

The partnership focuses on replacing fossil fuels with solar energy, reducing fossil fuel energy consumption. This represents a leap towards environmental stewardship and opens up new possibilities for locations previously deemed challenging due to reliance on gas tanks or diesel, thereby cutting down the fossil footprint significantly.

“Sustainability is part of AKVA group's culture and DNA. It is part of the solutions and products we sell and buy, as well as a driving force behind innovation. The goal is to achieve better cost-effective and sustainable operations. This is a system of floating solar energy production that generates 100 % emission-free green energy. The solar power plant will work as a “floating generator” being able to produce as much as 290 pKwh. In combination with a battery pack and water feeding, we can reduce the running time of the diesel generator by up to 90 % on a typical fish farm," says Schäfer Oyanedel.
