Skaginn 3X seals deal for wet salted cod.  Icelandic food processing specialist Skaginn 3X has secured a milestone deal with Russia based, Norebo’s Polar Sea+ LLC, supplying the company with a state-of-the-art automatic processing line for wet salted cod.

The line is scheduled to be set up in early 2020 and is especially designed to gently handle the fish and produce superior quality bacalao destined for export to Southern Europe, South America and Africa.

“It will be the largest of its kind in the Northern Atlantic, with a capacity of producing 50 tons of finished product per day and the capability of processing saltfish for various different markets with minimal changes”. Says Skaginn 3X’s Regional Sales Manager for Russia, Pétur Jakob Pétursson.

“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.” Pétur added.

The processing line will mainly be comprised of 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 with the worker in mind, creating a safe and ergonomic working environment.

Second Project for Skaginn 3X and Polar Sea+

Polar Sea+ LLC is the daughter company of seafood industry giant Norebo.

Polar Sea+ LLC’s fish processing factory, which was also designed by Skaginn 3X is one of the most advanced in the North Atlantic, manufacturing a large variety of fresh and frozen products from fish landed by Norebo’s Russian fleet.

“We chose to work with Skaginn 3X again on this project because their innovative products and solutions have delivered outstanding quality in the past.” Says Vladmir Zagorovsky, General director of Polar Sea+ LLC.

Skaginn 3X has strong roots in the Icelandic seafood sector and decades of experience in the manufacturing premium quality food processing equipment, providing a wide range of solutions to its customers, designed and created at the company’s state-of-the-art facilities in Iceland.
