Marine Harvest is one of the world’s largest salmon suppliers representing 70 % of the global farmed salmon industry. With operations along the west coast of Scotland and on the Western Isles, the company is one of the country’s largest producers of high-quality Scottish salmon, sold as whole fish.
In order to safeguard vital production facilities in the West Coast of Scotland, the seafood producer has handed ACE Refrigeration the responsibility of maintaining and servicing their crucial refrigeration, air conditioning and Geneglace ice plant. We were also able to solve issues with their Slurry Ice Plant whilst undertaking R22 Replacement works for Marine Harvest. Earlier in 2013 ACE replaced R22 in the gutting hall at the Fort William site and then the ice plant condensing units, which also ran on R22, were also replaced.
The use of virgin R22 gas is already banned and the use of recycled and/or reclaimed gas will be prohibited after 31st Dec 2014. Best options for its replacement depend on a number of factors including the age and the condition of equipment.
ACE Refrigeration is manufacturer independent and able to offer customers solutions which best meet their needs; and with energy costs on the rise, this is the ideal time to take action.
