KER Group supplied and installed New Fish Hold Chilling along with other refrigeration works


KER Group, supplied and installed the following on board

  • New Fish hold chilling
  • New Geneglase Ice Machine
  • Temperature monitoring system.
  • Man in hold alarm
  • Bilge alarm
  • Marel Weigh scales
  • Sorting Tables 
  • New non slip flooring

There was two existing slurry ice machines in place, that weren’t working well. The skipper wanted a flake ice system for use while white fishing. The existing fish hold system was working, but in order to improve the quality of the fish a complete upgrade was required. All the existing fish hold evaps were removed and replaced with stainless steel evaporator made from pipe. This increased the duty by double. There was a new Bitzer compressor and condenser fitted aswell, all the systems were fully piped wired and commissioned by KER Group


I employed KER Group as the quality of my fish is important to me, and as I wanted to land a quality product every time ashore. Carrying out this major overhaul has guaranteed that for me, and I am very happy with the work completed. The refrigeration system is working very well and keeping temperature in the fish hold. The ice machine is producing great. I am glad I carried out this project and delighted that I used KER Group. They are the professionals when it comes to chilling.

I highly recommend KER Group for all your refrigeration needs.
