Aquaculture Consultancy & Engineering


Aquaculture Consultancy & Engineering (ACE) was established in 2005 by Wageningen Agricultural University graduate Ir. Remmerswaal, active i aquaculture since 1987.

Ace Building

ACE is based in Mill, in the East of The Netherlands and is formed by a small, experienced staff, assisted by a group of part time specialists.

The company has an office, warehouse and workshop and, due to space limitation recently expanded into a second, 480 m2 warehouse.

ACE activities are divided into 4 groups;

  • Design and construction of complete fish farms

  • Design and construction of fish farming equipment

  • Feasibility studies

  • Far improvement studies (trouble shooting)

Designing is done by a small team of technicians that work with state of the art software.
The workshop is equipped to work with various plastics and metals, for example including a 3D milling machine for plastics and a range of welding-, sawing and grinding equipment.

Most of ACE profits are ploughed back into R&D and has resulted in exciting new products, for example for waste water treatment, heat exchanging and automatic feeding. Before marketing any of these products they are rigorously tested in the farm environment.

Our clients are found in Europe, The Middle East, Africa and Asia and projects range from design and construction of eel farms in Madagascar, to site location studies for Shellfish hatcheries.
