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”.
Stornoway Port’s flake ice plant completed
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.
