Polar Sea+ to install Skaginn3X saltfish line
Icelandic food processing specialist Skaginn 3X has secured a milestone deal with Norebo’s Polar Sea+ LLC, supplying the company with an automated processing line for wet salted cod.
The line is scheduled to be set up in early 2020 and is especially designed to handle fish gently and to produce high quality bacalao for export to Southern Europe, South America and Africa.
“We chose to work with Skaginn 3X again on this project because their innovative products and solutions have delivered outstanding quality in the past,” said Polar Sea+ general director Vladmir Zagorovsky.
Polar Sea+’s processing factory, also designed by Skaginn 3X, is one of the most advanced in the North Atlantic region, producing a large variety of fresh and frozen products from fish landed by Norebo’s Russian fleet.
“This will be the largest of its kind in the North Atlantic, with capacity to produce 50 tonnes of finished product per day and the capability of processing saltfish for various different markets with minimal changes,” said Pétur Jakob Pétursson, Skaginn 3X’s Regional Sales Manager for Russia.
“Polar Sea+ came to us, looking for a modern, high-capacity saltfish factory. Our answer was to design an environment that would provide an effective and even flow with quality at the forefront.”
The processing line will comprise a RoteX Supreme Thawing system, a brine mixing station and an ergonomic trimming station.
The RoteX Supreme Thawing system provides full temperature and thawing control. The system also secures a modern working condition, improved food safety, energy and water saving as well as guaranteeing minimal drip loss which results in higher yield.
The brine mixing station is fully automatic and will deliver precise mixtures to delivery stations within the factory. The trimming station is specifically designed to provide a safe and ergonomic working environment.
