Aquatec Submersible Offshore Floating Marine Cage’s First Export to the Nation of Bamboo Curtain
The submersible offshore floating marine cage created by the people of this nation has successfully penetrated the Chinese market to face incoming typhoon in the month of July.
In the effort of developing high seas fish cultivation technology, AquaTec never ceases to innovate. This largest marine and fishery equipment producing company in Indonesia has now successfully created the submersible offshore floating marine cage. A submersible offshore floating marine cage is a marine cage which can be submersed before the storm hits and then reemerged after the storm passes. Due to its ability to get submerged to a depth of 10-15 meters below sea surface, the submersible offshore floating marine cage can withstand even 11-meter-high waves. In addition, the submersion can also be done to avoid plankton booming and theft. The submersible offshore floating marine cage is the perfect solution to deal with the challenges in high seas fish cultivation in any weather condition. This creation of the nation has now penetrated the export market to China.
The First and the Only One in Southeast Asia
All these times, only a few European countries were able to manufacture submersible floating marine cages. Now with AquaTec, Indonesia has become the first and the only country in Southeast Asia that can manufacture marine cages with this technology. Unlike the European made submersible floating marine cages which still rely on the sea water surface level, the depth of submersion for AquaTec submersible offshore floating marine cage is determined based on the seabed, hence the submersion and reemerging processes of the cages are highly accurate, and do not rely on the sea water surface level which constantly changes due to tidal flux and reflux as well as the waves.
Some of the advantages of AquaTec submersible offshore floating marine cage compared to the European submersible floating marine cages are:
AquaTec submersible offshore floating marine cage
1. The simplest submersible floating marine cage in the world.
2. The submersion process of this marine cage requires less than 5 minutes and can be done without supervision, while the reemerging process requires less than 10 minutes. Therefore, AquaTec submersible offshore floating marine cage is the fastest in both submersion and reemerging processes in the world. Moreover, the submersion process does not require a diver. When submersed, the cage net is able to maintain its shape.
3. The cheapest submersible floating marine cage in the world (< USD 100,000 per unit).
4. One of the submersible floating marine cages which can be directly assembled by the cultivators (Do It Yourself).
AquaTec submersible offshore floating marine cage has been successfully tested for 4 times in Lampung and Bali with satisfactory results. Hence, the first investor to buy this floating marine cage comes from abroad – a private investor from China. This marine cage technology is extremely needed in China due to its ocean weather condition which is frequently hit by typhoon with about 11-meter-high waves.
Higher Quality than Europe, First Export to China
The first export of AquaTec submersible offshore floating marine cage was done on June 17, 2017. This marine cage will be installed in Hainan Province, China, and will be directly exposed to the typhoon in coming month of July. At times like this, China needs many of offshore floating marine cages such as this.
The President Director of PT Gani Arta Dwitunggal explained, he is very proud to have created the submersible offshore floating marine cage and exported it to China right away. His hope is so that AquaTec submersible offshore floating marine cage is also widely used in Indonesia, a country with ocean territory that makes 70% of the entire territory. Indonesia has huge high seas fish cultivation potential, and this nationally-created product is able to provide for it. Budiprawira is certain that his product has higher technology and quality than the European products, and with a far more economic price.
“I hope the government is willing to support the advancement of our technology to take advantage of the high seas potential in Indonesia. Here, AquaTec has a complete facility, starting from workshops, piping machines, injection machines with 2,000 tons capacity, eco-wood machines, and the Japanese standard knotless nets manufacturing machines. AquaTec is able to create modern marine and fishery technology for Indonesia to be proud of in the international world. Even more so if we have the support from the government, surely the Indonesian marine and fishery industry will dominate the world,” he said.
