Cooke Aquaculture Scotland, the largest producer of organic Scottish salmon, has deployed its first hybrid feed barge in Shetland.

The hybrid system reduces fuel consumption, carbon dioxide emissions and extends the life of the generator and equipment by using the residual capacity from the generator to charge the batteries. The auxiliary diesel generator feeds electricity to the rest of the facility and upon the batteries being fully charged, the generator stops and the hybrid system operates the feed barge.
