In the last few months, Recom Ice Systems has achieved some meaningful milestones in our business growth. Among others, we delivered two SL-100 slurry ice machine to FoodPartners Patagonia in Argentina, an organization focusing on the development and implementation of Quality Management and Food Safety Systems.

Also, Recom Ice Systems has sent five F50AT-5 flake ice machines to VeroBlue Farms in the United States, one of the largest onshore, indoor production of the Barramundi fish in North America. VeroBlue Farms is an exclusive global proprietor of several aquaculture technologies, under the banner of Opposing Flows Technology and we are looking forward to add our technology to their operations.

Recently Recom Ice Systems delivered a 15T per day ice plant with automatic stainless steel ice storage, capable of storing 20 tons of ice per day, to one of our clients, SUEZ Advanced Solutions UK Ltd.

SUEZ Advanced Solutions UK is a well known international company for innovative methods for water and wastewater management. The organization is focussed on tailored and integrated process solutions for measurable water management and with new technologies they preserve water quality by cleaning water pipes with ice, a process called ice pigging. Recom Ice Systems will now support SUEZ Advanced Solutions systems in La Spezia in Italy to reach reduced costs, energy and water consumption. With our containerized automatic ice storage, Recom Ice Systems offers unique pre-engineered and refrigerated ice storage solutions and we are thrilled to enhance innovative processes with our partner.

Close to the end of the year, Recom Ice Systems has won a new tender, issued by the Scottish Highland Council. Recom Ice Systems  will bring a substantial improvement to the harbor of Lochinver, Scotland’s second largest fishing port located on the west coast north of Ullpool.

After Lochinver’s harbor underwent a major reconstruction project in the 1990s, the council has now decided to invest into a 15T per day ice plant with 40T automatic ice storage and weighing & transportation systems. The Recom Ice Systems’ Harbour Solution from the Arctic Ice Series is a complete package for ice production, storage, delivery and weighing- all ensuring that not a bit of the fish’s freshness gets lost.

Recom’s highly innovative automation platform, RIIPP will also be installed at this plant. RIIPP allows users to easily identify themselves when ordering ice by using a tag and provides the harbour master with the tools to easily check the operation status of the plant via an online portal. It further simplifies both the payment and registration system and therefore save time for more efficient fishing processes.

Recom Ice Systems, together with MRSL, has won the Irish Tender for the Bord Iascaigh Mhara, the Irish Sea Fisheries Board. The Bord Iascaigh Mhara has a long record of  providing the Irish Seafood Industry with technical expertise, business support, funding, training and promoting responsible environmental practice.

Recom Ice Systems replaced old machinery in the ports of Castletownbere and Dunmore East with two of our 10 tons and two or our 15 tons flake ice machines from the F-series. These will help to produce clean and fresh flake ice for cooling fish in a trouble free manner.

Recom Ice Systems has been chosen as the supplier for a vessel flake ice machine for the Tridens, a multi-role fisheries research vessel of the Dutch Rijksrederij. The Tridens (length 73,5 meters) is used to help determine fish stocks in the North Sea, among other duties. Last year the ship was completely renovated by Maaskant Shipyards Stellendamn, part of Damen Shipyards Group, and a range of innovative applications have been fitted, like the latest Simrad sonar and echo sounder within the drop keel. The vessel has been roaming the North sea for over a year now and the need for onboard ice production was signaled. Through Windex Engineering B.V., Recom Ice Systems got the order to supply a Recom VF-20. The ice machine has been installed and performs to full satisfaction.

Seafood Processing Expo 2016: A Great Success!

At the end of 2015, Recom Ice Systems has completed the installation works of a big project in Scotland. As you might have read before, Recom Ice Systems got an order from the Stornoway Port Authority for the delivery and installation of an ice plant, that consists of a 15T flake ice machine (Recom F150AS-5), a 20T storage (IS20) and a 10T/hr transport system, with a screw weighing system and ice chute.Our MD, Stef Bouhuijs, made the trip to Stornoway, along with two of Recom’s engineers. Together with a local crew of welders and mechanics, they handled the installation works.

In one of the recent trials, the ice plant was tested at different heights of tides. Deputy Harbour Master Roy Maclean: “It all went very well and the ice flowed nicely”.

Recom Ice Systems has secured new work in Stornoway, Scotland. The Stornoway Port Authority has  awarded Recom the development work of an ice plant with storage and delivery systems.

Recom’s managing director Stef Bouhuijs: “This project reflects our on-going commitment to expand our European operations. We are well-positioned to grow our European backlog by executing large-scale projects.”

Situated 30 miles off the north west coast of Scotland the Port of Stornoway is the main seaport of the Hebridean Island chain and provides a vital link to mainland Britain. The Port of Stornoway used to be a major fishing port and still has a comprehensive infrastructure of support services for the fishing industry. Recent years have seen some stabilization and it is hoped that the new Recom state of the art ice plant will help the fishing industry in the Outer Hebrides to rebound.
