Skaginn 3X has been awarded a contract by Norwegian fishing company BlueWild to supply a full fish processing factory onboard the company’s new freezer trawler.

Catch will be transferred directly into water-filled storage tanks below the waterline where it remains alive before being taken to the factory facility. Overpressure release will be used to bring the live catch to Skaginn 3X’s processing line on the factory floor.

The turnkey processing system will process fillets, loins, centre pieces, tails, and bellies from whitefish, cooked and single-frozen consumer prawns or deliver blocks of industrial shrimp for further production on land.
