Pelagic processing system

When designing a processing plant for pelagic fishing, freezing capacity is of the highest importance. To preserve the quality of the fish, they must be processed quickly after being caught.

A modern fish factory consists of a wide range of machines for processing, handling, and freezing the fish. Click through the factory layout to get a better idea of Carsoe's turn-key solution for your pelagic processing system.

Automated and effective

High capacity freezing

An efficient pelagic factory onboard requires high capacity freezing solutions to ensure a stready and reliable production flow.

Our V16 vertical plate freezers is a popular choice. This type of freezer enables rapid freezing, through its direct method freezing, and ensures a high capacity for your vessel. With the automatic unloading system, it optimize processes onboard. 

If you are looking to design a more automated processing system, we would recommend the automatic horizontal freezer, with an automated loading and unloading system. This reduces the unproductive time of the freezing system and improves the working environment.
