The project which broke ground on June 6, 2014, began its trial production on April 10, 2015. Wuhan Chia Tai Group (known as CP Group) Aquatic Products Co., ltd. was an EPC project by FAMSUN. Covering an area of approximately 92266.67 square meters and worth a total investment of CNY 15.49 million, the project consists of one extrusion line, two pelleting lines for shrimp and crab feed, two hard pellet fish feed lines as well as an extra extrusion line; the Phase One of the project can produce 150 thousand tons aquafeed annually.
With the support of the up-to-date technologies and products from FAMSUN, the project features the specialization of aquafeed and automatic production standards:
- Central batching system: theWEM4000 computer batching system with its high batching precision, can measure the consumption of power, steam and materials of unit product; record equipment deviation and warn the maintenance staff to conduct preventive maintenance; efficient inventory management also ensures the scheduled production to be carried out for timely delivery.
- Automatic sampling: There are 19 autosamplers for the production lines. The samples, after automatic packing and coding, are delivered to the master control room by belt conveyer for testing.
- Products with different specifications to be sampled at one time: For example, the fry feed can be also sampled in the production for crushing feed for fish.
- Dedicated returning line for the materials to save space and time, reducing labor and the cost of packaging.
Wuhan is affluent in lakes and thus enjoys developed aquaculture. As the demand for fish, crabsand crayfish increases, the market size for the aquafeed reaches up to one million tons per year. Wuhan Chia Tai Group Aquatic Products Co., ltd. in Shuihonglingang Industrial Park, in HannanDistrict, Wuhan is poised to serve the market.
