The Greek farmer Philosofish has ordered two new feed barges from AKVA group. The barges are designed to meet the needs of the Mediterranean.
The barges are designed in close dialogue between AKVA group and the customer himself. The Greek breeder now has three barges from AKVA group.
Philosofish is one of the largest farming companies in the Mediterranean that farms sea bass and sea bream. Philosofish wants to take a leading role in creating a new future using new technology from AKVA group, and has, among other things, a vision to remotely control feeding with the help of digital solutions.
"Many exciting developments are happening in the aquaculture industry in the Mediterranean, and Philosofish is a customer who is investing. We greatly appreciate this collaboration," says Bruno Polichetti, who is the Managing Director of AKVA group in Greece.
By installing a hybrid battery pack on the barge, one gets an environmentally friendly, economical, and above all quiet main power source. It is the first time that AKVA group delivers such hybrid battery packs to Greece.
