Productivity in design

The requirements for increased productivity and a reduction of the manual handling are getting increasingly stringent in modern food industry. Providing an ergonomic working environment is a top priority today, and our focus is on optimization of all working operations involved in on-board processing.

With limited space on-board, our primary goal is to make the most of very compact arrangements, aiming at plant designs facilitating cleaning and for a high degree of automation for less labour-intensive production.


A complete solution

Each trawler is unique and so is the processing plant design. We use our extensive knowledge from other projects to design the optimum flow for your production with automation as a main focus.

When your catch is processed and ready for freezing and storage, the catch is sent through an automatic flow. The assorted species are frozen in our automatic horizontal plate freezers, then sorted by species or quality in separate hotels before being palletized in clean pallets and sent to the cargohold using our integrated elevator solutions.
