RAS-Right Training Programme

“A very useful course balancing the theory and the practicalities of bioreactor function and maintenance”
– Jon Walden, Grieg Seafoods

BluePlanet has one of the leading ranges of bacteria products in wastewater in the World today. Delivering biological solutions for municipal, industrial and environmental wastewater challenges, not to mention agriculture, aquaculture and soil remediation, gives our local representatives an edge when it comes to technical support.

At the request of customers, Nova Q has developed a range of training programmes around biological wastewater treatment specifically for RAS Aquaculture systems with a particular emphasis on nitrification, denitrification and biomedia.

The training can either follow a standard format or can be tailored to the needs of the client. Typical modules include:

  • Fundamentals in wastewater treatment
  • Introduction to bacteria
  • Wastewater treatment system
  • Plant monitoring and control
  • Nitrification and denitrification
  • Biomedia
  • System troubleshooting

Length of the training course will depend on the client, but typically, these modules can be tailored from a couple of hours to a full day course. It is also possible to run the course multiple times in a day to account for shift work.

We like to put an emphasis on understanding the basics of wastewater treatment to arm clients with the tools to manage issues as they arise, as well as to understand the trends that can be the start of a problem arising.

It is not necessary to be using RAS-Right products to benefit from the training, but as you’d expect, we go into extensive detail on nitrification and the conditions and reactions involved in the nitrogen cycle. So a proper understanding from how much ammonia will be generated, to the timing of nitrite removal and denitrification, all in both freshwater and saltwater conditions.
