FREMONT, CA: Ocean Ark Tech (OATECH) of Chile and its strategic ally, London-based Ocean Sovereign, has developed a 170m self-propelled fish farm, that is waiting for approval to deliver fish. This new concept offshore fish-farming system earned its Approval in Principle (AiP) by RegistroItalianoNavale (RINA). It tends to deliver a unique approach to aquaculture that improves fish health, crew comfort and builds the industry's reputation. It will offer an AI-assisted, low-emission trimaran designed along with self-cleaning copper fish pens.
Range of world-leading shipyards, including China Merchants Industry Holdings, Tersan, and CIMC Raffles have signed MOUs to build those vessels while finance has been secured for several units says OATECH.When the Ocean Ark is deployed away from aquaculture’s three Achilles, namely marine heatwaves, algae blooms, and storms, the production of high-quality fish and increase in world protein production without much pressure on wild stocks, coastal habitats, or on-land water resources will be possible. To this OATECH founder, Rodrigo Sanchez Raccaro, in a press release said that they have applied all their knowledge and expertise in the design, engineering, and development of this farming ark superyacht, including the dynamic and static modelling that test wave resistance. This superyacht fish farm is designed to operate offshore where the best conditions for the fish are met. This technology will allow low-density production of healthier and higher-quality fish. Furthermore, produce them at lower costs than the offshore, land-based, and coastal aquaculture systems now available. The Ocean Ark can be operated near Asian, US, and EU consumer markets for a major decline in transport emissions.
