In the latest instalment of the 'SAIC Introduces' series, we discover more about SAIC Consortium member Sealand Projects Ltd in this article by Ash Penley, the company's Net Zero Manager:
Sealand Projects Ltd is a solutions-focused management and engineering consultancy, which can draw upon our heritage of working in offshore energy to offer dynamic and sustainable solutions to the aquaculture sector.
We can support clients to develop a pathway to Net Zero, through our Carbon Management Program and promoting the use of our Aqua Power Pod to provide in-field renewable energy to offshore infrastructure.
Accelerate to Net Zero with Sealand Projects
UK & Scottish governments have set ambitious targets to significantly reduce carbon emissions by 2030 and achieve Net Zero by 2050.
The business community will have a key part to play in realising these targets, where reporting and progress will be tracked through regulatory compliance and increasingly cascaded down to SMEs through supply chain governance.
By building sustainability into the DNA of your company, you will promote growth, drive efficiencies, reduce waste and attract talent.
Wherever you are on your sustainable journey, knowing the carbon footprint of your business activities is a critical step on the pathway to Net Zero.
Sealand Projects have established a Carbon Management Program that can be tailored to suit your business activities, allowing Scope 1, 2 & 3 emissions to be mapped and a systematic approach to determining reduction target profiles, development of a Carbon Emissions Reduction Plan and Offsetting Strategy.
Our team will use their skills, knowledge and management to extract the necessary data, to allow us to frame the scope, define the boundaries and identify the reduction targets, whilst minimising the impact on your internal resources.
Low Carbon Energy solutions for Fish farms
Sealand Projects specialise in developing low carbon energy solutions for remote offshore marine environments, using renewable power from solar, wind and wave; battery storage to provide security of supply from battery storage or local power grids.
Most fish farming operations currently rely on diesel generators to feed the fish. In line with the UK Government Net Zero targets, fish farmers will be looking for alternative sources of power to replace diesel. Shore-cable in most instances is cost prohibitive with fish farms moving further offshore. Typical power needs for a fish farm varies between 45-250kW, which is cost prohibitive to investing in an offshore wind farm.
Sealand Projects are developing an Aqua Power Pod, which is a standalone renewable energy unit that is designed to be located in-situ, adjacent to fish farms, to provide the power requirements to meet operational needs. The Aqua Power Pod is a wind, wave and solar energy hub combined with battery storage to smooth out the supply, providing reliable continuous power to feed barges via dynamic power cable. The Aqua Power Pod is designed to be towed into location and can be offered as a moored unit or jack-up unit.
Sealand Projects have sought funding to progress the development of the Aqua Power Pod from FEED through to commercialisation.
