Individual project planning, evaluation or dimensioning of land-based aquaculture systems (RAS, PRAS & Flow-Through) is based on product, stocking material and stocking frequency, species-specific indicators (growth, stocking densities, feeding, losses), productive volume and water supply.
Production output of aquaculture project either will be defined by customer or is limited by site:
- Plot of land – dimensions, levels
- Existing buildings – groundplan, headroom, support spacing, excavation option
- Capacity – well water, tap water or surface water
- Water administrative license – water use, discharge requirements
- Existing aquaculture systems – RAS, PRAS, flow-through systems, ponds, net pens
Aquaculture engineer Mahnke offers technical planning, evaluation and optimization of RAS, partial RAS, water treatment, water supply, air supply and end-of-pipe treatment. Layout of process technology particularly is based on feed amount and flow of water.
Machinery, tanks, piping, fittings and packings will be specified in detail both in schemata and drawings. System descriptions are an option too.
- Producer, price, installation costs
- Material, dimensions, connections
- Capacity, power, hydraulics, consumption
- Investment costs, operating costs
- Engineering drawings (2-D)
- Rendered drawings (3-D)
- Block flow diagrams
- P&ID – Piping & instrumentation diagrams
Aquaculture specialist Mahnke doesn`t perform only as aquaculture consultant and aquaculture planning office. Fish farm expert Mahnke supports project execution and system operation with on-site service too.
