- Prolonged time at sea: Efficient onboard shrimp processing plant allows vessels to spend more time fishing, increasing productivity and yield.

- Eco-friendly energy usage: Productive systems are designed to reduce environmental impact and energy consumption for sustainable operations.

Shrimp processing plant

How to start a shrimp processing plant?

Creation of an effective and efficient onboard shrimp processing procedure may appear challenging, but with the right guidance and equipment, it is an achievable undertaking. 

To begin, consider implementing a Carsoe by-catch separator, designed to efficiently separate small fish from shrimp automatically. Next, integrate our shrimp grading machine, crafted to gently and accurately grade shrimp by size.

As you continue to build your processing line, our high-capacity automatic batch cooker delivers optimal value by ensuring perfectly cooked shrimp while maintaining a stable temperature with minimal variation. Notably, the shrimp are cooled and prepared for freezing as they exit the cooker. 

For rapid freezing of shrimp and other delicate products, our IQF tunnel freezer is the perfect solution, engineered to smoothly integrate with existing processing lines as part of an automated workflow.

The automatic freezing section can be coupled with a fully automated packaging line, allowing for streamlined master box integration. 

Once the shrimp are frozen and packaged, they are temporarily housed in a hotel, where they are sorted and readied for onboard palletizing. 

Our Carsoe hotels provide effective product organisation and storage prior to entering the palletizing section, which is equipped with an integrated elevator, ensuring a fully automated process until the products are retrieved by a forklift in the cargo hold. 

The elevators facilitate quick and efficient cargo transportation between decks, minimising manpower demands and optimising onboard space utilisation.

By leveraging our expertise and advanced equipment, you can confidently establish a complete and efficient onboard shrimp processing plant that meets your unique needs and requirements.
