Scottish Sea Farms is a leading producer of Atlantic salmon in Scotland, with farms on the West Coast of Scotland, Shetland and Orkney. As well as producing their own brands, Scottish Sea Farms exclusively produce the LochmuirTM brand of salmon for Marks & Spencer.
ACE Refrigeration was delighted to help Scottish Sea Farms when they wanted to expand their operations at South Shian near Oban. We were responsible for a new Chill Room, Production area and Dispatch Chill. In addition to the newly installed refrigeration element of the project, ACE were also able to provide the site with free hot water to wash down their production areas, crucial in a fish processing plant. All made possible thanks to a brazed plate heat exchanger which takes the heat that the refrigeration system extracts out of the air and reuses it to heat water.
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. As well as complying with the legal requirements of ever-changing legislation, replacing tired and inefficient equipment can have a major benefit on your bottom line – some of our recent installations have had a payback period of less than 2 years based on the energy savings received; some customers have saved up to 25% off their energy bills.
