  • Project coach: Rien Heule – GKN Fokker
  • Team: GKN Fokker, Damen, Boskalis, Heerema
  • Date: April - June 2018

Subject of this challenge was circular offshore fish farming. The team focused on the energy use of the Aquabarge from Heerema.

Within ten working days the team designed a model with which Heerema can calculate the best location for this barge. Roy Awater, participant and young professionals GKN Fokker: ‘The demand for salmon is mainly in Asia, while most fish farms are located in Norway. This, in combination with the pollution caused by transport, triggered us to look into possible locations for the Aquabarge from Heerema.’ Business owner Koos-Jan van Brouwershaven got inspired: ‘My expectations were high, but I didn’t expect a solution where my own team can start with right away.’
