The Deep Arctic Water company

Deep Arctic Water is an innovative company that supplies equipment, installations as well as project management and know-how of greenhouses on open water. All over the world the land near big cities is becoming more expensive, therefore people are looking for new solutions, including greenhouses on large open waters.

There were several technical bottlenecks that remained unsolved, until Deep Arctic Water finally overcame these bottlenecks. Currently, Deep Arctic Water is the only company that is able to provide the complete technology as well as project management regarding to greenhouse structures on open water.

The theory of a greenhouse structure on open water is not difficult, the structure will be used as a semi submergible on the water surface, rivers, and lakes. The structure will generate its own energy and sweet water with the most advanced technology. The biggest advantage for a greenhouse structure on open water:

  1. It is much cheaper than normal greenhouses, the total return on investment time is 3-5 years;
  2. It can produce almost all European, and Asian vegetables, and flowers;
  3. It is very flexible and resistant to any pollutions / disasters;
  4. Next to vegetables, the greenhouse structure can also be used as a production base for aquaculture (fish, and alges);
  5. It creates work opportunities for regions with comparatively lower labour cost. A greenhouse structure on the water can also be used in big lakes, such as Tai Hu, or Dong Ting Hu.

The real innovation is the high efficiency level of the complete supply chain together with vertical farming, and using the cradle-to-cradle principle. In the structure we make use of multiple layers of farming. Starting with fish farms in the salt water in the lowest parts of the structure. In the next layer we grow algae’s that produce oil and secures a large part of the energy demand. In other sections of this layer saltwater production is being exploited for food production. In the layer above we make use of hydroculture based on sweet water. The animal farms, like chicken and pig farms are in the next layers. Finally you will see the top level in which the normal European and Asian vegetables are being produced.

Energy will also be produced with the conversion of organic and liquid residue into biomass, and with the complete outside ring covered with solar cell foil.

A comment should be made here concerning the livestock production. Not only do we thrive to look at the animal wellbeing, but considering the total general costs of animal feed, we are looking into the possibilities of including insectfarms in the structure. Due to the fact that pigs create out of 10 kg of animal feed only one kilogram of meat, while Insectfarms realize out of 10 kg animal feed a yield of 9 kg of insectmeat.
