Subject: Ny-Fiskur invests in another FleXicut system
Icelandic fish producer Ny-Fiskur has announced it is investing in a second
FleXicut system from Marel for its processing facility in Sandgerdi, Iceland. This
is the tenth FleXicut to be sold within Iceland.
Ny-Fiskur was one of the first companies to invest in the FleXicut soon after its
launch in 2014. The machine has developed continuously since then, and has
remained the heart of the system that improves handling, yield and productivity
and now promises to raise quality even further with virtually hands-free
processing all the way from pre-trim to end-of-line, including final packing while
optimizing the utilization of each fillet.
“We’re just as excited this time around,” says Thorsteinn Magnusson, Managing
Director Ny-Fiskur. “We already know how the investment will improve
processing speed and product quality, and we expect the new features will give
us an important competitive edge.”
FleXicut remains at the forefront of fish processing innovations, now proving
itself effective at optimizing the fillet and giving production managers more
control than ever before.
As Oskar Oskarsson, Marel Sales Manager, explains, “We knew right from the
start that FleXicut has a lot to offer our customers in terms of productivity,
handling and yield. More recently, the real potential of the software element has
come to light – operators can tell FleXicut where the value lies for them, in
terms of high-value cuts, and it will use that information to decide how to cut
each and every fillet. This is groundbreaking stuff.”
Ny-Fiskur specializes in the processing and sale of cod and other fresh
seafood. The company processes approximately 6,000 metric tons of raw
material annually and its products are mostly exported to Belgium and other
The installation of the second FleXicut line at Ny-Fiskur is scheduled to take
place later this year.
