Aquaculture

Significantly reduced consumption, emission and noise impact

Kverneland Energi delivers hybrid energy solutions to the aquaculture. These can be supplied with batteries, generators, solar solutions, wind turbines, and complete power management systems.

Hybrid energy solutions

Our first delivery went to Lerøy Aurora in Troms, Norway, February 2017, for a «AKVAcenter feeding station» AC 600 PV Hybrid.

Kverneland Energi has in collaboration with the AKVA group, Siemens, Samsung SDI and TESVOLT developed a perfectly configured hybrid energy system for the aqua farm industry. The solutions have an optimal effect and adapted storage capacity with an estimated lifespan of 20 years.

Our hybrid energy solutions are sold and marketed through the AKVA group internationally as well as directly by the Kverneland International group.

The battery is the boss

Our hybrid solution enables the installation to operate without the use of generators. Instead, the batteries are charged by excess energy, which is produced by the generators. When the batteries are fully charged, the generators stop and then only restart when power is needed. Typically, one would reduce generator’s runtime from 24 hours to 3-5 hours a day. During the night or off-shift periods, the generators will not need to be operating. It’s perfectly possible to connect to solar plants and wind turbines that charge the batteries and further reduce the need for generators. Our solution reduces usage significantly, hence eliminating the noise of generators running for much of the day.

Benefits for the environment and the workplace 

The positive effects of hybrid energy systems are plentiful —reducing diesel usage and significantly lowering CO2 emissions. There is a vast reduction of noise pollution for both the fleet as well as the surrounding area. Also reducing the number of generators, which in turn reduce the need for maintenance cost and capital investment in equipment. The repayment time for this solution is highly advantageous.
