Located in the city of Milas in Türkiye, a large-scale aquaculture facility has been in operation since 2022. The ADEC Milas Aquaculture Facility is the first and only combined closed-circuit hatchery, nursery, and adaptation facility in Türkiye. The production will include a wide range of species including Trout & Sea Bass.
The hatchery consists of 2 sections – a hatchery section operated fully using Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS) technology, and a ground pond section consisting of a combination of RAS and raceway systems.
To accommodate such an ambitious facility set to achieve an impressive fry capacity of 20.000.000 per year, state-of-the-art technology had to be utilized. A total of 28 experts including biologists, engineers, technicians, quality control personnel, and others are employed, which likewise supports the need for proper equipment.
To ensure properly disinfected water in the RAS, UV technology was considered to be the primary driver for controlling the biosecurity risk through chemical-free water disinfection.
For such a large-scale facility, the applied technology and water treatment conditions had to be state-of-the-art. UV systems are the perfect integration for a well-functioning and cost-efficient RAS facility, as they effectively mitigate the biosecurity risk through microorganism control.
ULTRAAQUA was chosen as the UV supplier for this project, due to having extensive experience in the aquaculture industry, combined with the low maintenance requirements and exceptional durability of the systems.
A total of 15 UV systems were installed to accommodate the water disinfection protocol:
All installed UV systems are made of Polypropylene (PP) material, which is optimized for RAS systems due to its excellent corrosion-resistant qualities.
