Project Overview

The Dubai Aquarium is home to a massive 33,000 animals and showcases more than 85 species. The facility features a huge acrylic viewing panel, 270-degree walkthrough tunnel and an underwater zoo. One of the star attractions is a 5m-long Australian crocodile named King Croc. This giant creature weighs in at an extraordinary 750kg and is expected to grow much bigger.

AAT designed and manufactured the life support system for the King Croc exhibit. The life support system was built using three pre-plumbed sand filters on a single skid along with a separate skid containing the heat pumps, uv system and electrical distribution boards.
