The water treatment systems specialist BIO-UV group has signed an agreement with Boston-based aquaculture technology company Innovasea. It is said to accelerate the delivery of its development strategy in the global aquaculture industry and launch a drive west into the North American market.
BIO-UV Group has intensified its focus on aquaculture since its 2019 acquisition of triogen, which reportedly brought advanced ozone and advanced oxidation process (AOP) solutions into the product portfolio. The group has invested over €1m in aquaculture R&D over the past two years, with a contribution from its ozone engineering team in the UK.
“Aquaculture is an expanding industry critical to protecting our oceans from overexploitation and essential to maintaining global food security for generations,” said Simon Marshall, deputy general manager of BIO-UV group, “With established channels to market [Innovasea] [is] a partner to accelerate our growth.”
Innovasea vice-president and general manager of land-based aquaculture Marc Turano added, “Innovasea is known for designing recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) systems optimised and then supplying with the best equipment available. This partnership will enable us to continue delivering UV solutions to our customers.”
