Norebo company Polar Sea+ had already dealt with Icelandic processing specialist for its processing plant, and went back to them to supply a saltfish processing line for producing bacalao for export to southern European, South American and African markets
Scheduled to be operational in 2020, the Polar Sea+ processing line incorporates a RoteX Supreme Thawing system, a brine mixing station and an ergonomic trimming station.
The RoteX Supreme Thawing system provides full temperature and thawing control. This also secures modern working conditions, improved food safety, energy and water saving as well as guaranteeing minimal drip loss, resulting in higher yield.
The brine mixing station is fully automatic and will deliver precise mixtures to delivery stations within the factory. The trimming station is specifically designed with the worker in mind, creating a safe and ergonomic working environment.
‘We chose to work with Skaginn 3X again on this project because their innovative products and solutions have delivered outstanding quality in the past,’ commented Polar Sea+ general director Vladmir Zagorovsky.
‘This will be the largest of its kind in the North Atlantic, with a 50 tonne per day production capacity and the capability of processing saltfish for various different markets with minimal changes,’ explained,‘ Skaginn 3X’s regional sales manager for Russia, Pétur Jakob Pétursson.
‘Polar Sea+ came to us, looking for a modern, high-capacity saltfish factory. Our answer was to design an environment that would provide an effective and even flow – with quality at the forefront.’
