In 2010 African catfish culture was just starting in Germany. Stimulated by the availability of free heat from the emerging biogas plants in rural areas, Aquaculture ID constructed several indoor RAS grow out units linked to biogas plants, with a total combined production of 1,200 MT per year.
The project for Bioenergie Lüchow consisted of four identical RAS units, each capable of producing 75 MT African catfish per year. Using a simple but very innovative and effective design, using for example sedimentation tanks for mechanical filtration each unit was only using 7 kW per hour, taken by one single pump only. The facility has been constantly running since 2010 without any issues, acting as an example for the later projects we completed in Germany.
