  • Evaporator area: A 9m evaporator, 2 x filter skids (membrane filtration & nano filtration) , 6 x pumps & a vacuum pump
  • Miller drier room: 2 x filtration tanks, a bone hopper (which extracts bones from fish liquidized mixture), an ultra rotor (turns liquid into powder which uses a gas boiler as a heat source) and a ventilator.

Electrical: 

  • New light system controlled by a PLC.
  • Supply to process equipment, wastewater treatment plant and office areas including canteen, board room and changing rooms.

Pipework:

  • Total contract included 2.7km of stainless steel piping & 1400 purged welds, all supported and bracketed to prevent vibration.
