Signify and ScaleAQ join forces to optimize feed conversion most efficiently and contribute to the food challenges the world is facing. Together the two companies will improve fish welfare, production and yield for fish farmers by providing an optimal light spectrum, light distribution and control system so farmers can customize the light recipes to their specific needs.
Optimal lighting improves fish welfare and results in a better feed conversion ratio lowering maturation rate. It also protects fish from sea lice infestation. Signify offers Philips Aquaculture LED lighting products that ScaleAQ will resell with an initial focus on marine-based/seacage products. Leveraging 125 years of Signify’s lighting experience in innovation, technology and equipment, the partnership provides customer-tailored sustainable solutions to the Aquaculture industry with a focus on quality, efficiency, service and being future proof.
Bill Bien, Head of Agricultural Lighting Business, Signify said: “The aquaculture industry is growing rapidly and needs partnerships like this to meet the increasing need for local presence and support, at the same time using R&D resources to develop solutions for the future. Our focus on lighting recipes, IoT and data insights play a crucial role in optimizing agricultural businesses in the future, helping us to create custom solutions together with ScaleAQ that are solid growth platforms for fish farmers.”
Per Ivar Lund, Head of Business Development, ScaleAQ said: “We are very pleased to be partnering with Signify on aquaculture lighting systems. As a global partner and advisor to the aquaculture industry, it’s important for us to be able to offer a wide variety of products and the Philips lights will be an important addition for both our sea-based and future land-based efforts. We believe the industry will also benefit from our collaboration on servicing the lights. ScaleAQ will now be able to provide its customers with service on the Philips lights from its many local offices around the world.”
