Located in Vietnam, Viet-Uc operates one of the largest shrimp hatchery operations in the entire world, specializing in the hatchery, nurturing, and incubation of shrimp. The mission of Viet-Uc is to continuously invest in new technologies to transform the future of Vietnam’s shrimp industry through innovative and creative solutions.
By constantly seeking to improve the conditions at their intensive shrimp farms, Viet-Uc has become one of the most innovative leaders in sustainable shrimp farming. With a thorough water treatment and waste management protocol, excellent conditions are created for the shrimp to thrive under full control.
To accommodate such a large-scale facility for such an ambitious and innovative company, huge requirements were set for the applied technologies. To live up to these high demands, the absolute best methods for bacteria control were a necessity. Ensuring high-quality water for continuous reuse in the closed recirculation systems was a must to ensure the best possible conditions for the shrimp.
Seeking to enhance sustainable development within the aquaculture industry, the vision of Viet-Uc was perfectly matched with ULTRAAQUA’s efforts in this industry. As any commercial aquaculture farming facility also needs to consider costs and profitability, UV technology flawlessly accommodates the requirements for both sustainability and cost-optimization.
The operation of such a large-scale shrimp farm comes with a lot of challenges and risks. One of the main threats is bacteria outbreaks, as there is a long list of potential shrimp diseases. Viet-Uc puts great emphasis on managing this factor, as the risk relates directly to the shrimp yield and ultimately revenue of the entire operation.
By utilizing Polypropylene UV systems from ULTRAAQUA, Viet-Uc is able to successfully remain in full control of the water treatment conditions. This included installing UV systems to handle both the disinfection of the hatchery, as well as the grow-out intake water.
The UV systems will thus play a vital role in terms of ensuring that the shrimp will thrive throughout the entire lifecycle to maximize the survival rate, shrimp growth, and ultimately production yield.
