INVE Aquaculture energy plan to reduce CO2e emissions in Thailand

In 2021, a study was conducted to determine the energy consumption at our factory in Thailand. After a thorough examination, the study findings were reported and a plan was developed following recommendations. The plan stipulated an ambitious program extending to FY26, which anticipates a reduction of at least 1,900 tCO2e.


The program included several key projects, including installing a solar rooftop with a 950 kWh capacity at the facility. The building will provide over 1,400,000 kWh of solar energy annually and reduce carbon emissions by at least 700 tCO2e per year. Installation work started in April 2023 and was completed in October 2023.

Investment in high-efficiency air-cooled chillers will result in an annual saving of 700,000 kWh of energy and at least a 300 tCO2e reduction in emissions. A supplier was selected, and installation was completed in March 2023. Together, these projects are expected to reduce emissions from the site by more than 20%.


The site has continued identifying and working on smaller projects throughout the year. A production team proposed replacing the wet cleaning of crates with an equally effective dry-cleaning process. Implementing the proposal has eliminated the need for a drying process, saving 15,000kWh of energy per year and reducing emissions by 7tCO2e. Additionally, this new process has reduced water usage, saved time, and eliminated the use of disinfectants.

An imbalance in a three-phase power system was identified which was increasing consumption by 1,200 kWh annually. The three-phase supply will be rebalanced during ongoing maintenance and equipment replacement works which is anticipated to reduce annual emissions by 1.2 tCO2e this year.
