This project has started with a small system that will ensure that the design that we intend to use for the rest of the commercial systems will function and operate as expected.
This allows us to fine-tune the system as well as test the capacity of how far we can push the boundaries of conventional Aquaponics thinking.
The Dongkor Project will be built in 3 stages; the first of which commenced in August 2022.
This stage is called the R&D system, which comprises a 24m Long x 10m wide grow house and beside/connecting to that will be a 13m long x 15m wide Fish house.
We are starting off by growing three species of open lettuces and Tilapia Fish.
The production capacity for this system will be;
Approximate 15,500 Kg of fish and 6100 kg of Lettuce per 12 months of production
The estimated revenue of this production could be in the region of $43,000 USD per 12 month
After a year of production, this system will revert to a Research & Development as well as our training system where we will test different varieties of Vegetables and fish species to find out their capacity to be used in the Commercial Units.
The project should reach its completion in the third year after commencement or before. Due to the land size, the project will reach its building capacity of 1 x R&D system/training area and 3 x Commercial System each being 30m wide x 45m Long.
These three systems will have an estimated production capacity of;
Approximate 154,440 Kg of fish and 67,000 kg of Lettuce per 12 months of production
The estimated revenue of this production could be in the region of $443,880 USD per 12 months.
