The Challenge:

When CageEye approached us, they faced a big challenge in designing for harsh underwater environments. They needed a solution to revolutionise fish feeding efficiency while operating in extreme conditions. The Norwegian Fjords, with freezing temperatures and corrosive saltwater, posed unique obstacles. CageEye lacked the expertise in designing for such harsh environments and needed a partner to help them overcome these challenges.

Their main goal was to optimise fish feeding operations, minimise waste, and achieve sustainable production. With the growing global demand for food, it was crucial to find innovative ways to meet these needs. CageEye understood the importance of accurately observing fish behavior and appetite to make informed feeding decisions. However, their existing prototype lacked the durability and precision required.

What We Did:

We took on the challenge of designing for harsh underwater environments to support CageEye’s fish feeding optimisation goals. Our team of experts worked closely with CageEye, understanding their specific needs and the demanding conditions they faced. Drawing upon our experience in designing for extreme environments, we embarked on developing a robust hydroacoustic system.

Using our knowledge and skills, we carefully selected materials and design approaches that could withstand freezing temperatures and corrosive saltwater. We created a durable solution that could endure the tough conditions of the Norwegian Fjords. Our aim was to provide CageEye with an efficient and reliable system.

Through meticulous testing and iterations, we integrated high-resolution sensors and advanced technology into the hydroacoustic system. This allowed for accurate observation of fish behavior and precise feeding decisions. Our focus was on optimising efficiency while minimising waste.

Results:

The collaboration between Ignitec and CageEye yielded impressive results in designing for harsh underwater environments. Our hydroacoustic system provided CageEye with the tools to optimise fish feeding operations successfully. The system’s resilience and accuracy in extreme conditions enabled CageEye to achieve remarkable outcomes.

By accurately observing fish behavior and appetite, CageEye improved feeding efficiency and reduced waste. This resulted in increased production and a more sustainable approach to fish farming. The system’s durability ensured uninterrupted performance in freezing temperatures and corrosive saltwater, providing long-term benefits.

Our collaboration empowered CageEye to become industry leaders in fish farming optimisation. The hydroacoustic system, designed specifically for harsh underwater environments, revolutionised their operations. By partnering with Ignitec, CageEye gained the expertise and innovative solutions needed to overcome the challenges they faced.

In conclusion, our expertise in designing for harsh underwater environments allowed us to support CageEye in their fish feeding optimisation journey. The results speak for themselves, with improved efficiency, reduced waste, and sustainable production. The success achieved showcases the value of innovative design in extreme conditions and solidifies CageEye’s position as industry frontrunners in fish farming optimisation.
