Automating Labor Tasks in an Urban Aquaculture Farm

One unit of SESTO AMR has been deployed to automate water sampling, test for PH Values, Salinity and temperature in multiple water tanks has resulted in significant time and labor savings.


​Singapore's limited land and labor resources present significant challenges to achieving self-sufficiency in food production. In the context of aquaculture, a critical sector in this mission, the traditional methods of water sampling and testing for parameters such as pH values, salinity, and temperature in multiple tanks are labor-intensive and time-consuming. This poses a substantial obstacle to meeting the production targets set by local aquaculture farms.



One customized unit of SESTO AMR was deployed to automate tasks such as water sampling in urban aquaculture farms, providing a seamless and efficient alternative to manual labor. The AMR navigate through the farm, collecting water samples from various tanks and conducting precise tests to ensure optimal conditions for shrimp farming.



The adoption of AMR has translated into remarkable outcomes. With an annual shrimp production target of 36 tonnes, the aquaculture farm has achieved unprecedented time and labor savings. Universal Aquaculture reports a staggering reduction of up to 4,600 man-hours, allowing their workforce to focus on more strategic and value-added tasks.
