  • ​Efficient and sustainable growing systems from fresh healthy food: vegetables, fruit, herbs and fish.

  • Up to 90-95% water saving compared to arable farming.

  • No use of synthetic fertilizer.

  • No use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides and antibiotics.

  • More taste, more nutritious, high production yields, best qualities (scientifically and proven in practice).

  • Biodiversity in a recirculating ecosystem (closed nitrogen cycle / cycle horticulture).

  • Independent / minimal influence of weather from outside.

  • Fully modular to build and extendable. Small to large systems.

  • Using sustainable energy.

  • Local sustainable food production possible at any location.

About Aquaponics:

 

Aquaponics is a breeding principle whereby combined vegetables, herbs, fruit and fish are grown in a recirculating ecosystem. It is a combination of fish (aquaculture) and plants (hydroponics) in a controlled indoor climate. This allows food to be grown in a biodiverse way at any desired location throughout the year. The fish fertilize the water system and pure organic worm compost release the nutrients to the recirculating water, allowing the plants to grow under optimum conditions. A balanced ecosystem is present in this system with numerous good useful microorganisms and bio-filtration. The quality, nutrients of the products and natural resistance / the immune system of the plants and fish are therefore higher. Synthetic fertilizer, synthetic minerals, pesticides, herbicides, antibiotics, etc. are absolutely unacceptable and are therefore not added. This produces the purest farmed fish and vegetable food. Compared to regular (organic) arable farming, up to around 90% water is saved. In addition, organic crop cultivation also uses harmful substances or contamination via the air, soil and water. Aquaponics is also called "Better Than Organic" (better than organic). Fully sustainable, healthy and locally produced super food!

Mission & Status

 

Vierhout Engineering (Evert Vierhout) has in recent years, among other things, specialized and certified (by Murray Hallam & Upstart University) on the Aquaponics breeding principle. Vierhout has developed various modular Aquaponics cultivation systems based on systems that have proven themselves successfully in practice (specifically Hybrid Aquaponics). We are currently in the development / planning phase. The intention is to realize a nursery in (East) Netherlands / Twente with which (exclusive) healthy local products are produced. In addition, these breeding installations are offered with all associated techniques and education to other interested parties and entrepreneurs. At the moment, Vierhout is still looking for a partnership and / or interested entrepreneurs / investors or (existing) growers to start up and realize the project.

In search of:

Parties that want to help and invest in the further development, marketing and practical implementation of Aquaponics systems.

Meanwhile, successful nurseries have been set up in the USA, Australia, Asia by various entrepreneurs in recent years. Vierhout has the knowledge and experience of this in-house, from theory to operating these types of installations in practice. The (Hybrid) Aquaponics systems with the associated techniques that are being developed by Vierhout Engineering are based on proven technologies, biology and practical data from various pioneers, knowledge institutions and practical entrepreneurs. At Hybrid Aquaponics different types of breeding trays with a certain scale / ratio are used. We have made our own technical design based on the most successful proven nurseries. In the future, we will offer these techniques in standard modules and as tailor-made solutions to interested entrepreneurs. These installations can be realized on very different scales, from small-scale home use, to large-scale commercial nurseries. This can be achieved at many locations. It does not have to be at the expense of arable land, but with it more efficiency can be created on fields. The systems can, for example, also be implemented at locations that no longer serve a useful purpose, vacant sites, in vacant office buildings, sheds / halls, in old livestock stables, greenhouse horticulture, etc. Vierhout has designed a greenhouse complex based on (recycled) prefab. containers and can be expanded completely modularly. The energy required for the applied techniques (pumps, aeration, heating, grow lighting, etc.) that is required for this is supplied by means of renewable energy. Various options can be applied for energy management, such as solar energy and biomass integrated into the nursery.

Vierhout is inspired and educated by Murray Hallam, Waterfarmers, Upstart University and many entrepreneurs.
