This video describes Marel's whole salmon grading, packing and logistics system installed at Norwegian Bremnes Seashore.
When Bremnes Seashore embarked on a major upgrade of its Bømlo plant, the project included the installation of a Marel whole salmon grading and distribution system, the most advanced system that Marel has ever installed in a salmon factory.
The system's remarkably high level of automation ensures flexible processing capacity to meet seasonal- or order-book highs and lows - without pressures to increase or decrease the workforce.
The system has two distinct processing areas: the gutting area and the grading and distribution area which also includes packing of the whole salmon into boxes.
The complete installation as well as all of the plant's logistics, operates on Marel's Innova production management software. Innova provides a complete overview and control of every stage of the production process, including quality control, order processing and packing.
Bremnes Seashore COO, Bjørn Willy Sæverud explains:
"The upgrade of our Bremnes plant, and the introduction of Marel's packing grader and Innova production management software, are key elements in our goal of continuing to produce high-quality fish, while increasing our mix of value-added products such as fillets"
"The new system gives us the option of processing several different types of products at the same time, resulting in an uninterrupted flow of product on-line, while Innova provides us with logistics relating to production planning, packing, labeling and registration for a variety of purposes, among them traceability. "
"Each fish that leaves our factory can be traced back to the egg from which it was hatched, and the labeling on our boxes has bar-coded data on a host of details, for example size, quality, tracking number, packing date/plant and shelf life, among other key information."
"Despite higher production costs in Norway as opposed to other European processors, we have a distinct advantage in that we have ready access to a constant supply of high-quality fresh fish, which does not have to be transported long distances for processing, as is the case, for example in Russia, Poland or China."
