MMC First Process and APRIA Systems reached a strategic agreement to deliver reliable and efficient water quality solutions for the aquaculture industry. Through it, they could bring to the market a new solution that addresses one of the challenges to RAS systems: the variations in water quality.

An agreement in which both companies combine their knowledge and experience. On the one hand, MMC First Process in fish handling solutions. On the other hand, APRIA Systems’ in-depth expertise in water treatment and its state-of-the-art water treatment solution Eloxiras.

“We are confident this strategic partnership will boost our mutual business opportunities within the wellboat and land-based aquaculture markets. […] We are happy to include this product range in our portfolio,” stated Petter Leon Fauske, CEO of MMC First Process.

The process is based on electrochemical oxidation, which, as a result, removes nitrogen compounds (including ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates) and organic matter. It also provides on-site disinfection at the same time. Thus, it provides a predictable and stable water quality in a single step, making it a successful formula for improving the productivity, profitability, efficiency, and environmental impact of marine RAS systems.

Eloxiras is a one-of-a-kind solution for fish welfare. Therefore, turnkey solution will provide significant advantages to customers to ensure water quality independently of water temperature, sudden changes in biomass densities, short-time operations or water exchange limitations. We believe these are key features contributing to our customers’ competitive position in the aquaculture market,” said Pedro Gómez, CEO of Apria.
