Frost and Skaginn have signed a contract for a new pelagic plant in Fuglafjordur, Faroe Islands.

The contract is with a newly established company P/F Pelagos, whose four owners and founders are all closely connected to the Faroese fisheries sector and pelagic industry. Sp/f Framherji is one of the major participants in the Faroese pelagic and white fish industry; P/F Havsbrún is one of the major fishmeal and salmon feed producers in the North Atlantic, and is owned by P/F Bakkafrost; P/F Palli hjá Mariannu is also one of the major participants in the pelagic industry in the Faroe Islands, through its subsidiaries Norðborg and Christian í Grótinum; and P/F á Enni, a local investment company in Fuglafjørður.

The plant is similar to the plant delivered to Vardin Pelagic in 2012 - the initial capacity will be 600 tons per day, with the possibility to increase the capacity to 1,000 tons per day.

The plant design is Skaginn’s automatic solution with an automatic grading, packing, freezing and palletising system. The refrigeration system delivered by Frost is specially designed for the Skaginn automatic plate freezers and to ensure lowest energy consumption possible.

Species to be processed at the new plant are blue whiting, mackerel, herring and capelin.

The new plant will be operational in August this year.

Frost has also recently become the distributor and service representative for FrioNordica products in Iceland. Among the FrioNordica products represented are: Finsam IceMachines; RSW coolers; heat pumps; slurry ice systems; and flow ice systems.
