It is not uncommon for fishermen to be skeptical of new solutions on board, especially when it comes to automation. This is probably the way it has to be. A liner or trawler is often several days away from the port. If something is damaged at sea, it can be complicated to do the necessary repair and service.
Nordic packing machine
However, the automatic packing machine from Nordic by BEWI has proven to be an excellent addition to the packing line for vessels engaged in onboard freezing. The Nordic packing machine is solid and has a minimal need for spare parts.
The ship’s need for crew is reduced and the packing machine can handle fish blocks weighing up to 75 kg. The fish handling speed may double from the vertical freezer to the freezer compartment.
The machine is an investment in efficiency, health, and well-being on board.
Nordic welding machine
A stand-alone welding machine for horizontal and vertical blocks effectively closes the bag without the use of additional products, such as tension straps or tape.
