Skaginn 3X supplies Russian processing factory
Skaginn 3X has signed a contract to supply a processing factory to Collective Farm Fishery by V.I. Lenin that will grade, pack and freeze species including Alaska pollock, Pacific cod, wild salmon, squid and pelagic fish.
The factory in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy on the Kamchatka Peninsula in Russia is expected to be operational by the beginning of 2020.
Sergey Borisovich Tarusov, chairman of Lenin, stated: “We are proud to implement Icelandic technology into our new factory. The combination of seafood traditions from Russia Far East and the Icelandic processing technology enables increased value creation from the resources.”
500t daily capacity
Icelandic refrigeration specialist Frost will provide refrigeration to enable the factory to freeze more than 500t of fish per day, with the possibility to expand capacity in the future. The system, which will be designed to meet international standards in energy efficiency, will include advanced freezing technology with automatic plate freezers for both fillets and whole fish, while IQF freezing of all key products will be possible.
Ingolfur Arnason, owner and CEO of Iceland-headquartered Skaginn 3X, stated: “For us it is very important to contribute to improved utilisation of fish, our ability to apply our total system integration approach is a key to make this happen. This is in fact similar as the development has been in Iceland where we strive to maximize the value of every fish.”
The combined efforts of Frost and Skaginn 3X have been backed by Knarr Rus, which represents Icelandic technology companies in the Russian market.
Jon Birgir Gunnarsson head of marketing and sales at Skaginn 3X, confirmed the company is already in the middle of another large project for Russia-headquartered Gidrostroy.
