A&S Thai Works (ASTW), located in Samut Prakan west of Bangkok, has finalised an order for a 500 tonne per day fishmeal plant for Russia with a value of more than US$12 million. The customer is PCF Yuzhno-Kurilsky Ryibocombinat Co Ltd (YUKR) and the plant will be installed on Kunashir Island in the Kuril Islands.
The YUKR plant will have two separate production lines with input capacities of 160 and 340 tonnes per day. It will include state of the art waste heat evaporators from AMOF-Fjell in Norway for optimum energy saving. The delivery will also include a complete triple boiler plant made in Thailand by GETABEC German-Thai Boiler. There will be full PLC/Scada computer control, and the whole plant will be designed for maximum reliability, using some of the best components available worldwide.
This will be the largest and most modern fishmeal plant is Russia when it becomes operational in September this year.
ASTW is manufacturing the plant at the company’s workshops in Thailand. The company’s 25-strong installation team will then travel from Thailand to install and commission the plant, assisted by Russian engineers and technicians. Installation is expected to take four months.
A&S Thai Works is based in Thailand with Thai and Norwegian ownership. The company has designed, manufactured and installed high-tech fishmeal and rendering (meat and bone) meal plants since 1984 and has a workforce of 200.

The contract was signed by YUKR’s general director Konstantin Korobkov and Sverre Golten, managing director of ASTW. The Russian embassy and trade representatives are suppling regular valuable support during the project.
