About RAS

A quality home for fish

RAS (Recirculating Aquaculture Systems) utilizes advanced technology for the purification and reuse of water in land-based aquaculture facilities. Typically, 95-99% of the production water is recycled. This entails a very efficient use of water resources. Minimal waste enables a very favorable green footprint. Heat exchangers and other components in the process utilize the energy in the water. This allows for efficient control of temperature and thus predictable production conditions. RAS facilities from VAQ also deliver optimal water quality and growth conditions for fish – with a high degree of biosecurity. Our solutions are designed so that both fish and people can thrive in everyday life.

  • Project Development from Idea to Completed Facility
  • Feasibility Studies
  • Biological Production Planning
  • Process Calculations and Mass Balances

  • Electrical Installations and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA)
