Signify and ScaleAQ partner to supply lighting solutions for aquaculture
With an initial focus on marine-based and sea cage products, the companies will also work on future land-based solutions.
Signify and ScaleAQ join forces in a global strategic partnership for sustainable aquaculture solutions, to optimize feed conversion and contribute to the food challenges the world is facing. Together the two companies will improve fish welfare, production and yield for fish farmers by providing an optimal light spectrum, light distribution and control system so farmers can customize light recipes to their specific needs.
Signify offers Philips Aquaculture LED lighting products that ScaleAQ will resell with an initial focus on marine-based/sea cage products. Leveraging 125 years of Signify’s lighting experience in innovation, technology and equipment, the partnership provides customer-tailored sustainable solutions to the Aquaculture industry with a focus on quality, efficiency, service and being future proof.
“The aquaculture industry is growing rapidly and needs partnerships like this to meet the increasing need for local presence and support, while at the same time using R&D resources to develop solutions for the future. Our focus on lighting recipes, IoT and data insights play a crucial role in optimizing agricultural businesses in the future, helping us to create custom solutions together with ScaleAQ that are solid growth platforms for fish farmers,” said Bill Bien, head of Signify’s Agricultural Lighting business.
“We are very pleased to be partnering with Signify on aquaculture lighting systems. As a global partner and advisor to the aquaculture industry, it’s important for us to be able to offer a wide variety of products, and the Philips lights will be an important addition for both our sea-based and future land-based efforts. We believe the industry will also benefit from our collaboration on servicing the lights. ScaleAQ will from now on be able to provide its customers with service on the Philips lights from its many local offices around the world,” said Per Ivar Lund, head of Business Development at ScaleAQ.
In combination with the knowledge and experience of Signify’s fish specialists and technical experts, the partnership will help Signify to further develop the service it can give its global customers and strengthen customer relationships. “Our products can serve the very high demands a modern sea cage puts on quality, durability and functionality, but with this partnership, we will also focus on collecting even more customer insights to continuously improve the products we provide them with,” said Bien.
