Construction on the Company’s first RAS facility was completed in late 2010 and stocking operations commenced in early 2011. To date, 12 out of 16 grow tanks are in full operation. The current stocked fish should begin to reach marketable size of an estimated 500 grams per fish on or before October 30, 2011.

The Company has also recently started construction on a second facility which will be the first commercial scale RAS prawn farm in China. The new facility is a few kilometers away from its first location in Enping, China. When completed, the new farm is expected to produce some 500 metric tons of prawns per year. Pending government approvals and finalization of contracts, the Company currently has a single site, two module farm also planned to begin construction later this year adjacent to its contracted 100 acre open fish farm bringing the total number of “A Power” RAS modules to four.

The “A-Power” Technology Difference

A-Power Technology (“APT”) is an engineered, self-contained water treatment and re-circulating aquaculture system (“RAS”) for the growing of aquatic animals on a commercial scale. It mainly consists of the A-Power Grow Out Basin and the A-Power Treatment Stack equipment and operating techniques and procedures which Capital Award has established as essential or desirable for the establishment development and operation of the A-Power aquaculture system. In an APT designed fish growing system, fish produced are free from diseases commonly associated with other outdoor aquaculture methods. The system is fully integrated, automated and climate-controlled. With strict water quality management, APT fish growing system creates a stress-free environment for the fish. These ideal growing conditions enable improved productivity, mortality rates of less than 8% and feed-to-fish conversion ratio of 1:1 for pallet feed and 2:1 for non pallet feed. The system is housed on land in an enclosed environment under fully controlled conditions, and by avoiding contact with any outdoor contamination and using treated water; APT RAS produces healthy farmed fish guaranteed free of antibiotics and other pollutants.

It is an environmentally friendly system that recycles all water used in the farm. It enables the production and supply of fish in the vicinity of urban area all year round consistently. The RAS has been commercially applied in Europe and Australia for the past 30 years and APT has been commercially developed and used in Australia since 1998. However the RAS and APT are relatively new to the Asian countries including China.
