Recom was commissioned to supply a 15T containerized ice plant in Italy for the more recent development in the applications of Ice Pigging. Together with SUEZ Advanced Solutions UK ,the exclusive developer of this technology, Recom provides a great and sustainable solution for the maintenance and cleaning of tanks, water supply pipes, sewerage and irrigation cleanings with recognized results all over Europe.
Ice Pigging is a highly effective and low risk pipe line cleaning technology. Just in the Netherlands there is about 117.000 kilometers of drinking water pipelines, which have to be cleaned from time to time. With ice pigging a combination of water and flake ice is pumped into the pipe and forced along inside in order to remove sediments and unwanted deposits. It combines the benefits of the two traditional methods, flushing with water and forcing a solid object trough the pipe, without any of the drawbacks. Recom’s ice machines are perfectly capable of producing the right type of ice for this technique and together with the customer, we engineer the perfect solution for every situation.

Huon Aquaculture Group, Australia’s premier privately owned salmon aquaculture company has invested in a Recom 30T/day containerized flake ice plant with 20T automatic ice storage with screw delivery system. Due to the fast growth of Huon Aquaculture in the last 3 years the need for flake ice for their fresh process line has increased. Recom Ice Systems had the right equipment to fulfill the requirements of the new production line and received the order to supply and install the complete flake ice plant.
Three years later, in 2014, Huon again approached Recom Ice Systems with a question regarding transportation of the ice. They had to transport ice from the ice plant to their factory. Eventually Recom had the privilege to supply them a Recom AID-10 (air delivery system).

Hydrofish Aquaculture Ivory Coast is a well-known, high class Catfish and Tilapia farm based in Bingerville. In 2010 Recom Ice Systems received a request from Hydrofish to supply a decent quality ice machine with manual ice storage. At that point, Hydrofish was a rather small company and sought for a relatively inexpensive solution. We supplied a 10T/day Recom flake ice package with an air-cooled condenser upon a refurbished and modified 20ft. refer container. For their production line we also supplied and installed a “ First-In First-Out” blast freezer for racks.

On behalf of the Ministry of Fish Wealth of the Republic of Yemen, the Fisheries Resource Management and Conservation Project (FRMCP) has purchased eleven Recom 10T/day containerized flake ice machines with ice storage and eight Recom 10T/day containerized block ice machines with unload system and ice storage. To develop nineteen local “landing sites”, they were in need of high quality ice machines to provide the fishermen with fresh ice, which is used both on the boat and on the shore to cool the fish. With this investment the Ministry created the right conditions for the export of fish to Europe and other countries.
