Geomembrane

CASE STUDIES

  • Name of the Project: Blue Harvest Aqua Farm (Mrs. Anitha Mathew)
  • Place: Goa, India
  • size of the aquaculture pond: 3 ponds of 2500 Sqm Each
  • Year of Installation: 2017
  • Cultivation type: Vannamei Shrimps
  • Output Achieved: Approx. 6 MT in one batch
  • Aquaculture Technology: Biofloc
  • Gains due to aquaculture pond: Lining the aquaculture ponds with Texel HDPE Reinforced Geomembrane and with the use of Biofloc technology has reduced requirement of land for farming. The same produce that requires 15 acres of land is now possible in 0.5 acres of land.
  • Name: Mr. Josemon
  • Place: Kerala, India
  • size of the aquaculture pond: 1 culture pond of 2500 Sqm
  • Year of Installation: 2017
  • Cultivation type: Tilapia
  • Output Achieved: Approx. 10 MT in one batch
  • Aquaculture Technology: Biofloc
  • Gains due to aquaculture pond: With use of Biofloc technology and pond lined with Texel HDPE Reinforced Geomembrane, Mr. Josemon is able to produce more output. He is gaining good prices for the fish as compared to the market price, as he is able sale the fresh fish through farm gate marketing.

GEOMEMBRANE:

Geomembranes are low permeability synthetic liners used to control fluid or gas migration within soil, rock, earth or any other geotechnical material, as an integral part of man made product, structure or system.

Tightly woven “Geotextiles” are bonded on both sides of Geomembrane with “Polymer compound” making a combined product “HDPE Reinforced Geomembrane”.

APPLICATION:

The aquatic animals in an unlined pond are prone to various diseases which originate from the exposed soil. They are exposed to various impurities such as effluent water, chemical waste contained in the groundwater. This contamination can affect the growth of the harvest to a great extent and also pass the diseases to the consumers of the aquaculture products.

The ponds lined with Texel HDPE Reinforced Geomembrane, insults animals from such diseases. Geomembrane also helps to control the water seepage which is an important factor in the aquaculture.

The benefits of using Texel HDPE Reinforced Geomembrane for lining aquaculture ponds are:

  • Disease free harvest
  • Easy to clean and maintain the pond post harvest
  • Reinforced Geomembrane has high strength, tear & puncture resistance, high hydrostatic resistance due to reinforcement and multilayer structure.
  • UV stabilized to ensure longer life.
  • Chemical resistant.
  • Highly beneficial when used with the Biofloc technology.
