3 Tonne per day, salt or freshwater ice machine, complete with Bitzer condensing unit and Azcue pump. Ice machine produces flake ice for use during white fishing.

Fish hold chilling

Fish hold chilling in all fish tanks. KER Group manufactured the complete evaporator from stainless steel piping, approx. 1,000 meters. The vast quantity of piping increases surface area and allows for increased refrigeration duty, offering our client’s optimum fish hold temperatures for their fish.

Air conditioning

KER supplied and installed a full heating and cooling air conditioning system throughout the accommodation, galley and wheelhouse areas.
