2020-1358 – SolarSteam-CL

The Fresnel direct steam solution offers a decentralized renewable source of process heat below 400 °C to industrial end-users which reduces their energy costs (e.g. around 10% per unit) and carbon emissions significantly (95% per unit of energy). Besides, under a Heat Purchase Agreement – HPA, industrial end-users overcome major financial risks as the thermal plant is owned and managed by ESCOs and the energy prices are guaranteed upon pre-defined contracts.

Smart Solar Modular Container [SunBow] – Modular Plug&Play Solar Photovoltaic Containerized Solution with built-in intelligence and self-learning capabilities for an optimized implementation.

SunBow is a modular,containerized and local manufactured PV solar solution with built-in intelligence and self-learning capabilities that is easy to transport, install,setup and use which has been identified as a potential solution to provide energy access and promote energy self-consumption in contexts with low electrification rate or with limited electricity quality of supply,such as Ghana.
Our project aims to implement frugal innovation by offering electricity at lower cost than the electricity from the main grid,from diesel generators or even traditional solar containerized solutions that are not optimized and adjusted to real needs.Reduced investment costs will be achieved by having an optimized and locally made solution;lower operation costs are expected by developing local capacity. Resulting in lower electricity costs, making energy access affordable.

Sustainable feed for shrimp aquaculture in Indonesia

The main aim of this VAP project is to support LSAqua in the market uptake of their shrimp feed products in the third-largest shrimp aquaculture producer in the world, Indonesia, with a global market share of 12%. The innovative approach of our company, has several benefits not only for the farmers (better performance regarding costs, survival rates and farming efficiency) but also for the environment (less wild-fish captures to produce fishmeal) and the local society (locally sourced diets that imply more local jobs). During the VAP project work plan, we will build a partnership with the strategic subcontractor Nutricell, a well-positioned producer of nutritional products for aquaculture and livestock which commercializes all over the country.

AquaSure: Improving resilience and sustainability of small aquaculture farmers

The project aims to develop an affordable water filtration system for the removal of solid waste in the fish ponds, and tailor-made for inland small to medium sized rainbow trout farmers operating in open flow systems continuously.
Small-scale proof of concept unit of AquaSure® system is being demonstrated onsite in a fish farm in the Cauca Valley (Colombia) to finally deliver a system that solves the filtration needs of small-medium farmers.
AquaSure® is conceptually based on Filtration Drums,and will be modular to reduce initial CAPEX, linking the system with production capacity,and reduce OPEX by working in a self-adaptative mode. It will allow farmers acquiring the technology in line with their investment capacity and production requirements.
