IN BRIEF - Mussel production in the Delta will drop by 15% this season

Thursday, May 25, 2023

The mussel campaign in the Ebro Delta has also started with the uncertainty of seeing in what conditions it will be possible to reach summer. Initially, production will fall between 10 and 20% and will go from 3.5 million kilos of product to around 3 million. After the mortality of the calf due to the heat in July of last year, it has had to be bought, but it has cost twice as much as usual and less has been bought and planted. Water restrictions in irrigation canals are also noticeable in the growth of the specimens. The percentage of small size product has increased. The reduction in the contributions of fresh water in the bays is already noticeable at the beginning of the campaign and the sea has a salinity "never seen" at this time.

Mollusc producers in the Ebro Delta have had to buy mussel farming from Greece and Italy, but they have bought less because the price has practically doubled in recent years. Of 67 cents of euros that cost them three years ago, this year they have paid 1.10 euros (plus VAT). It is not the only production cost that has increased. "All consumables have gone up," recalled Gerardo Bonet, manager of Fepromodel (Federació de Productors de Mol·luscs del Delta de l'Ebre).

IN BRIEF - ASMAR launches a prototype that reduces energy consumption and emissions for shipping companies and aquaculture

Thursday, May 25, 2023

The route towards the decarbonization of maritime transport is one of the objectives that ASMAR has set itself through its Plant located in Punta Arenas, in a public-private alliance, which has already completed an energy storage prototype in state-of-the-art lithium batteries. generation.

The system developed together with the company Lambda, allows a lower use of diesel generators, reducing the carbon footprint in connectivity warehouses, isolated facilities and farming centers, reducing generator maintenance costs.

The Navy already operates this system in lighthouses in the Magallanes Region, with auspicious results in energy availability and reduced emissions at low cost, reaching a reduction of up to 70% of direct energy generation, as well as fuel savings, maintenance of generating equipment and a significant extension of the useful life of these devices.

The prototype, which is already available for use in ASMAR workshops, consists of a charging and energy storage system through lithium batteries, using the installed generation capacity of each unit or pontoon. For its installation in warehouses, consider a model with a plug and play system and a digital tool that allows you to monitor the operation of generators and batteries in real time, as well as electricity consumption.
